QuickTip #10: Avoiding loss of activity of Ni charged IMAC columns

Have you experienced how Nickel-charged chromatography columns used for purifying His-tagged proteins lose their blue color, become a bit yellow and can’t bind your protein anymore? It can happen...

QuickTip #9: Purifying a His-tagged protein with low expression level

Do you find yourself having to deal with a very low yield of your target protein after the expression? Are you using a His-tag? Here are some ideas to help you with your purification.

QuickTip #8: Desalting oligos for therapeutic use

If you’re purifying therapeutic oligos you’ll need to clean the desalting resins afterwards in a far higher concentration of NaOH than the usual desalting resins will tolerate. This is how to solve...

Process modelling for chromatography – how is it used?

Process modelling of chromatographic behavior, in an industrial setting, can be a useful tool in dealing with the complexities of purification process development, optimization and scale-up. It can...

QuickTip #7: Improve purity of viruses and vaccines

Changing from purification products based on synthetic polymers to agarose-based chromatography will increase the purity of the target virus.

Enhanced Capture Process - a presentation

Just before the Christmas break, Lars, Haneskog, Bio-Works R&D Director, presented a new and proven strategy for downstream processing at the New Horizons in Biologics and Bioprocessing conference....

How reversing downstream bioprocess steps can make all the difference

Improving downstream bioprocess economy depends on fine-tuning an enormous range of parameters, from culture and harvesting to purification and final polishing. Success depends on the ability to...

QuickTip #6: Use true buffers

A critical and fundamental factor in both analytical and preparative chromatography is the use of true buffers. In other words, mobile phases with buffering capacity. For example, in peptide...

QuickTip #5: Filter everything

Filtering is crucial in order to protect the packed column from all solid particles in feeds or eluents. Clogging of the column will increase back-pressure and disturb the feed loading zone causing...

Ten things you must know when producing synthetic therapeutic peptides

Peptide therapeutic agents are enjoying increasing success but they are challenging to produce and, not least, to purify. Purity requirements are, in fact, approaching those for small molecules....
