POROS XQ: The Next Generation of Anion-Exchange Resin

POROS™ XQ is a next-generation strong anion- exchange resin with a fully quaternized amine surface chemistry. It was designed to retain all the beneficial performance attributes of POROS HQ resin, such as resolution capability, flow properties, and physical stability, with the added benefits of higher capacity and salt tolerance. Those were realized by optimizing the pore structure, which drives better access of biomolecules to the surface charge, and by optimizing the amount of surface charge (the ligand density) as measured…

CaPure-HA™: DoE Optimization of Elution Conditions

Design of Experiments (DoE), also called experimental design, is a statistical approach to process development that has gained wide acceptance in the biopharmaceutical industry. DoE is used to reduce development costs by speeding up the design process and to optimize the parameters of a particular step in the manufacturing process. With its inherent ability to take into account multiple variables at once, a designed experiment is also used to minimize process variation leading to a more robust manufacturing process. Read…

MAb Aggregate Removal Through Ion-Exchange Chromatography: In Bind/Elute and Flow-Through Mode with TOYOPEARL NH2-750F

A polishing step for the purification of a monoclonal antibody (MAb) using TOYOPEARL NH2-750F was developed. In general, anion-exchange resins can be used in bind and elute (B/E) mode as well as in flow- through (FT) mode. Both options were evaluated. To increase the amount of aggregates of the test sample, a MAb was aggregated by acidic incubation and subsequently diluted to 1 g/L in loading buffer.
