GE Healthcare Introduces HiTrap™ Capto™ IEX Selection Kit for Chromatography Media Selection
Product News Jun 02, 2008
GE Healthcare has introduced the HiTrap™ Capto™ IEX Selection Kit, a set of prepacked HiTrap 1 ml columns used for selecting Capto ion exchange chromatography media for a given application. The kit allows screening of three traditional and two multimodal ion exchange chromatography media prior to scale-up.
The kit consists of five different high capacity ion exchange and multimodal ion exchange media based on the Capto agarose base matrix. After selecting the best chromatography medium for a target protein, larger prepacked columns and bulk media for preparative purification work are available from GE Healthcare, allowing for scale-up. Screenings and purifications can be easily performed using a peristaltic pump, or a chromatography system such as ÄKTAdesign™.
Capto is GE Healthcare’s proprietary ion exchange chromatography media range, offering a combination of high-volume throughput and high capacity for fast and efficient purification of large amounts of protein.
