Macro-Prep High Q provides superior resolution separations at high flow rates

Effect of flow rate on peak symmetry and separation. A 5 ml sample (4.4 mg/ml) of myoglobin (peak 1), ovalbumin (peak 2), and BSA (peak 3) was run on a 1 x 13 cm (8.7 ml) column at each of the indicated flow rates. The buffer was 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.6, with a gradient of 0–0.5 M NaCl over 100 ml.

Bio-Scale Mini Macro-Prep High Q cartridges are available in 1 and 5 ml sizes. These cartridges come prepacked with Macro-Prep High Q strong anion exchange media and are ideal for method scouting and small-scale purifications.

Macro-Prep High Q media contain quaternary amine functional groups and are ideal for purifying acidic and neutral proteins and peptides. The support is an excellent choice for rapid purification and meets the demands of analytical, semipreparative, and process-scale applications. This methacrylate copolymer bead provides high-resolution separations at very high flow rates. Changes in pH or ionic strength of the buffer do not cause shrinking or swelling of the support. Macro-Prep High Q can be sanitized with chaotropic agents and can be autoclaved. It provides consistent and reproducible results.

Advantages of Macro-Prep High Q include:

  • High capacity for biomolecules
  • High resolution of complex biological mixtures
  • Rigid polymer matrix that allows high flow rates at moderate pressures
  • Hydrophilic matrix that reduces nonspecific binding
  • Macroporous beads that enhance access to ionic sites
  • High chemical, mechanical, and thermal stability

Bio-Scale Mini cartridges have a double-wall cartridge design* that provides extra durability and allows easy, reliable runs at pressures up to 45 psi with the aqueous buffers most commonly used for protein separation. Convenient, ready to use, and disposable, the cartridges have chemically compatible polypropylene parts. Bio-Scale Mini cartridges are designed for use with BioLogic systems, a peristaltic pump, or any chromatography system; simple luer fittings make connection to any system easy.

Regulatory support files are available upon request. Bio-Rad Laboratories is an ISO 9001-registered corporation.
