Gore announced the launch of GORE Protein Capture Devices with Protein A, intended for drug discovery and research applications, which fundamentally improves the purification process of monoclonal antibodies.
It was introduced at the PepTalk, Protein Science Week in San Diego California.
Columns, flows distributors, frits and plugs are designed with a polypropylene material. Connectors are designed with 10/32” threaded fittings.
GORE Protein Capture Devices use an polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane composite that provides a binding capacity advantage at high flow rates and improves the speed of purification.
These unique membrane devices are currently being offered in 1.0 mL (≥ 30 mg capacity) and 3.5 mL (≥ 105 mg capacity).
The GORE Protein Capture Device has high binding capacity at a short residence time enabling fast processing times and the potential for highly concentrated elution pools.
This allows researchers to screen more candidates in less time and potentially eliminate a downstream concentration step during the antibody purification process.
Gore Product Specialist for chromatography products William Barrett, Ph.D. commented, “With PepTalk’s Protein Science Week attracting top protein science researchers, we felt that it was an excellent venue to introduce our high binding capacity at short residence time, ePTFE membrane-based chromatography column, developed to offer scientists an improved mAb purification process. Gore is proud to be part of PepTalk 2017.”
