Multi-Mode Mimetic Ligand™ Library – A Rapid Screening Toolbox for Target Protein Purification

Small synthetic ligands have established themselves as an essential component of modern downstream processes, both as specific ligands for product capture or the targeted removal of impurities and more generally for product polishing applications. Historically, the identification of a specific ligand for a target protein has required the engagement of specialist companies. Whilst this approach can be very successful, such studies often require some time to set-up and perform (i.e. from ligand discovery, to adsorbent/process development and finally manufacture) and…
