Woods et al. biotechnology industry that focus on biotherapeutics, glycosylation is a critical modification of recombinant proteins, which influences their stability and solubility [72, 73]. Therefore, characterization of glycoproteins is difficult because the glycosylation is not uniform and usually more glycoforms are simultaneously produced by the cells and the accuracy in the MS-based identification and characterization of the glycoprotein isoforms is crucial [74]. Analysis of glycoproteins may be accomplished by LC–MS/MS analysis of tryptic digests.

Proteins also do not require special handling, such as tag or isotope labeling. With current advancements in software technology, there is no limit to the number of samples that can be analyzed. Among the approaches used for label-free protein quantification are spectral counting and measurement of MS precursor ion intensity (or chromatographic peak area) [101, 102]. In spectral counting, one measures the number of spectra that correspond with peptides that are part of one protein [64, 103], while MS precursor ion intensity approach interrogates the chromatographic peaks corresponding to particular peptides at a normalized elution time.
