Cellufine™ IEX

Cellufine™ Ion Exchange Chromatography Media

The support matrix of the Cellufine™ ion exchange (IEX) media series is highly cross-linked cellulose with dextran scaffold and is shown in the pictograph below. The unique crystalline molecular structure of the support matrix and the variety of pore sizes and ligands that are available in the Cellufine™ IEX chromatography media series make it possible to select a chromatography media that is well matched to specific purification conditions. As demonstrated by the Kav (distribution coefficient) curves shown in the graph below, the support matrix and large pore size of Cellufine™ MAX series media are well suited to the purification of large molecular weight proteins. The performance of these media is shown for thyroglobulin (660 kDa) below.
