A Scalable Immobilized Metal Affinity Chromatography Media for Process Purification

Downstream process purification of proteins requires a resin with optimized bead size for ideal pressure/flow properties and decent dynamic binding capacity (DBC) that provides production efficiencies and good process economics. Nuvia IMAC Resin provides the mechanical strength, pore structures, ligand density, and particle size distribution required for an operational run at 300 cm/hr with a DBC of 40 mg/ml at 2 bar column backpressure. Protein purification can efficiently be scaled up from milligrams in the lab to kilograms in bioprocess manufacturing. The chemical stability of Nuvia IMAC Resins ensure efficient column regeneration, reproducibility between purification runs, extended column lifetime, and product purity. Watch our video to learn how Nuvia IMAC Resins overcome the challenges associated with process purification of proteins using metal affinity chromatography.
