Sartobind pico 0.08 ml capsule size completes portfolio of salt- tolerant membrane adsorbers Sartobind STIC PA membrane binds contaminants under high-salt buffer conditions

Gttingen/Aubagne, September 27, 2011 - Polishing in antibody production is usually performed on quaternary ammonium (Q) membranes in flow-through mode, since the overall speed and productivity is much higher than on traditional anion-exchange columns. However, the binding capacity of Q ligands is reduced at higher conductivities, so concentrated feed streams must be diluted to adequately remove contaminants such as DNA, host cell proteins, viruses and endotoxins.
