Dye-Stripping Buffer and Resin Stripped-Dye Analysis: Development and Optimization of a Novel Spectrophotometric Assay and Method for Removal of Cibacron Blue Dye

Biopharmaceutical process-related impurities encompass all organic and inorganic materials that arise from the biomanufacturing process apart from the drug substance. According to ICH Q6B guidelines on test procedures and acceptance criteria for biotechnological products, these impurities include cell substrates such as host-cell proteins, host-cell DNA, endotoxins, and so on; inducers, antibiotics, media components, and chromatographic media used in purification processes; and solvents and buffer components (1). Impurities can cause undesired, deleterious pharmacological effects if ingested or injected by a patient,…

Dynamic Binding Capacities of Protein A Resins for Antibody Capture: A Comparative Evaluation

The dynamic binding capacity (DBC) of a chromatography resin represents the total amount of target protein that the resin will bind under actual flow conditions before significant breakthrough of unbound protein occurs. This is a useful parameter for predicting what the process performance of a resin will be in actual use. DBC affects the overall amount of resin that can be packed in a given column for a process — and the number of batches that can be processed cost-effectively…
