Ceramic Hydroxyapatite (CHT™) for Commercial Purification

Ceramic hydroxyapatite is one of the leading media for biomolecule purification. It's a spherical ceramic form of crystalline hydroxyapatite and this form allows it to be used in production-scale columns at high flow rates while maintaining its unique separation properties.

CHT Binding Mechanism

CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Mechanism

Hydroxyapatite contains two types of binding sites, positively charged calcium and negatively charged phosphate groups. These sites are distributed regularly throughout the crystal structure of the matrix. Solute species dominantly interact through cation exchange via the phosphate groups and/or metal affinity via the calcium atoms.

IgG Protocol Using CHT

Purification of IgG on UNOsphere Rapid S IgG protocol using CHT
Optimizing the bioprocess requires management of multiple variables ranging from matrix interaction, elution characteristics, scale-up from bench, regulation and drug safety requirements, and process robustness and economics. This IgG protocol has been developed as general starting guidelines for the purification of most proteins and nucleic acids and may help to reduce time spent in methodology development.

Globular Protein Protocol Using CHT
Protocol II: Globular Proteins

Protocol II: Globular Proteins

Flow rate: 300 cm/hr
Buffer A: 5 mM NaPO4, 150 mM NaCl, pH 6.8
Buffer B: 500 mM NaPO4, 150 mM NaCl, pH 6.8
Buffer C: 500 mM NaPO4, pH 6.8

Equilibrate the column with approximately 10 column volumes of buffer A. Prepare the sample, adjusting the pH and conductivity to those of buffer A. Load the sample in 5 mM NaPO4, pH 6.8; wash the column with approximately 5 column volumes of buffer A; and elute with approximately 20 column volumes of buffer B linear gradient. Slope and amplitude can be adjusted based on initial results. After elution clean the column with approximately 5 column volumes of buffer C followed by a sanitation step using approximately 5 column volumes of 1 M NaOH.

CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3OH)2 support is a leading purification medium for today's demanding downstream process industry. This mixed-mode support offers unique selectivities and often separates biomolecules that appear homogeneous using other chromatographic methods. The diverse binding capabilities of CHT for host cell proteins, leached protein A, antibody dimers and aggregates, nucleic acids, and viruses allow its use at any stage from initial capture to final polishing.

The robust properties of CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite improve efficiency, yield, and financial value through:

  • Excellent capture at elevated flow rates, enabling processing at all scales
  • Large capacity for high-titer upstream feedstocks
  • Exceptional selectivity, allowing a two-step chromatographic process

Two types of CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite, Type I and Type II, are available in three particle sizes, 20, 40, and 80 µm. Both types have elution characteristics similar to crystalline hydroxyapatite but also have some important differences:

  • Type I, sintered at 400°C, has a higher protein binding capacity and better capacity for acidic proteins
  • Type II, sintered at 700°C, has a lower protein binding capacity but offers better resolution of nucleic acids and certain proteins; it also has a very low affinity for albumin and is particularly well-suited for the purification of many species and classes of immunoglobulins
