GE Healthcare Launches HiTrap™ Con A 4B Prepacked Columns
Product News Jun 17, 2009
GE Healthcare announces the launch of HiTrap™ Con A 4B, ready-to-use columns prepacked with Con A Sepharose™ 4B, a chromatography medium for separation and purification of glycoproteins, polysaccharides and glycolipids.
The HiTrap columns are made of biocompatible polypropylene and are available in 1 ml and 5 ml formats, providing a convenient and reproducible solution for separations. These columns can be operated with a syringe, a peristaltic pump, or a liquid chromatography system such as AKTAdesign™.
Con A Sepharose 4B is an affinity chromatography medium with a lectin, concanavalin A.
(Con A), coupled to Sepharose 4B. Immobilized lectins are invaluable tools for isolating and separating glycoproteins, polysaccharides and glycolipids, subcellular particles and cells, and for purifying detergent-solubilized cell membrane components. They are also useful for assessing changes in levels or composition of surface glycoproteins during cell development and in malignant or virally transformed variants.
Con A Sepharose 4B chromatography medium is also available in 5 ml and 100 ml bulk packs.
