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 the problem.

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.

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 purification, there are concentrated bands of various..

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 reduced resolution and it is a common problem...

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. Synthesis generates a crude mixture containing..

QuickTip #4: yield of His-tagged proteins

Immobilized Metal Ion Affinity Chromatography (IMAC) is used for purification of His-tagged proteins. Ni-NTA based resins are the most commonly used as the Ni2+ ion is considered to have the strongest affinity to histidine-tagged proteins but..

QuickTip #3: optimizing mAb purification

Designing an optimized purification process means maximizing yield and purity, and at the same time controlling costs. So, you remove a lot of bulk impurities during the first steps, and focus on high yield steps at the end, when every gram is..

QuickTip #2: choosing IEX resin

Recovery of the biological activity of your target substance is a priority, and it’s important to check for its pH and ionic strength stability values...

QuickTip #1: cleaning IEX columns

When an IEX resin has been used for some time, impurities may build up in the column causing loss of resolution or increase in back pressure (shown on the pressure monitor or seen by gap formation on the top of the column)...

Some general tips on protein purification strategy

Can you generalize about something as broad as protein purification strategy? Surely it depends on the protein and the situation in general? Well, yes, of course. But there are some general aspects which might be valuable to think through before..
