High resolution HIC columns for protein characterization
Characterize proteins and biotherapeutics including monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and antibody drug conjugates (ADC) with the non-porous, polymethacrylate-based particles (2.5 μm) functionalized with a butyl ligand coating in Protein-Pak Hi Res HIC Columns.
HIC offers attractive orthogonal separation advantages. In reversed-phase LC, proteins are retained by hydrophobic interaction with alkyl groups (e.g., C18) on the packing material. However, the butyl ligand density on Waters Protein-Pak Hi Res HIC Column is comparatively less, resulting in fewer protein-ligand hydrophobic interactions. Consequently, HIC-based elution is possible using gradients of decreasing salt concentration at physiological pH values.
Yield outstanding resolution of charged species in less time
Protein-Pak Hi Res IEX Columns were developed to assist in the characterization of recombinant proteins, monoclonal antibodies, and other biological compounds. Your lab can achieve outstanding resolution of charged species in less time compared to traditional porous IEX offerings with the non-porous, high compound binding capacity of these particles. In addition, quality control testing with defined protein standards helps ensure consistent batch-to-batch performance.
Reduce non-specific adsorption
Protein-Pak HR packing materials are based on rigid, hydrophilic, polymethacrylate polymer particles with large 1000 Å pores. The naturally hydrophilic polymer reduces non-specific adsorption, resulting in quantitative recovery of protein mass and bioactivity. These packings are compatible with buffers in the pH range 2–12 and will withstand exposure to caustic solutions. The Protein-Pak HR 8 µm and 15 µm packing materials are available prepacked in Waters Advanced Purification (AP) glass columns. These columns are compatible with a variety of analytical and preparative LC instrumentation.
