Protein-Pak Column Characteristics

Protein-Pak Column Characteristics

Protein-Pak Hi Res Hydrophobic Interaction (HIC) Columns
  • Ideal for hydrophobic-based separations for protein characterization using non-denaturing conditions
  • Deliver fast, efficient separations using non-porous particles to address high-throughput needs
  • Test for acceptable instrument and HIC column performance with the included Waters HIC Protein Test Standard
  • Successfully used for the analysis of cysteine-based ADCs
Protein-Pak Hi Res Ion-Exchange (IEX) Columns
  • Designed for the characterization of protein charge variants and other biocompounds
  • Address selectivity needs with two cation-exchangers (carboxymethyl and sulfopropyl) and one anion exchanger (quaternary ammonium)
  • Deliver fast separations that address high-throughput needs with non-porous, high-capacity stationary phases
  • Quality Control (QC) tested with protein standards to ensure batch-to-batch consistency
  • eCord-enabled to help monitor column use on ACQUITY UPLC Systems
Protein-Pak Hi Res (HR) Ion-Exchange Glass Columns
  • Chemistries include: Q functional group, a strong anion exchanger; DEAE, a weak anion exchanger; SP a strong cation exchanger; CM, a weak cation exchanger
  • Compatible with buffers in the pH range 2–12
  • Able to withstand exposure to caustic solutions

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.
