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. The cartridges are prepacked with Bio-Rad's chromatography media for ion exchange, affinity, hydroxyapatite, and fluoroapatite media. Convenient, disposable, and ready to use, these cartridges come in 1 and 5 ml formats that can be used for method scouting or simple purifications (larger 10 and 50 ml desalting cartridges are also available). The simple luer connections can connect easily to any chromatography system (for a column connection guide, refer to bulletin 5326).
The Bio-Scale Mini cartridge protein purification sampler packs offer a quick way to experiment with separation techniques when the protein to be purified has not yet been characterized. With the following sampler packs, a sample can be tested with all the cartridges in a single day.
Bio-Scale Mini Apatite Purification Kit
CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite and CFT ceramic fluoroapatite have comparable separation characteristics, differing mostly in the pH buffer range in which they perform best. Whereas CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite exhibits pH stability as low as pH 6.5, the fluorine substitution in CFT ceramic fluorapatite extends pH stability to as low as pH 5.6. The Bio-Scale Mini apatite purification kit is a convenient way to evaluate which apatite material provides the optimum chromatographic performance for your application.
- Prepacked columns with CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite and CFT ceramic fluoroapatite for convenient process development
- Low bed volume allowing minimum requirements for sample and buffer
- Luer fittings for convenient connection to any chromatographic system
- Distinct selectivities and different pH ranges
