Specific measurement of recombinant protein titer in a complex environment during industrial bioprocessing has traditionally relied on labor-intensive and time-consuming immunoassays. In recent years, however, developments in analytical technology have resulted in improved methods for protein product monitoring during bioprocessing. The choice of product-monitoring technology for a particular bioprocess will depend on a variety of assay factors and instrument-specific factors. In this article, we have compiled an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of the most commonly used technologies used: electrochemiluminescence, optical biosensors, rapid chromatography and nephelometry. The advantages of each technology for measuring both small and large recombinant therapeutic proteins are compared with a conventional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique.
