Advances in bio-therapeutics are generating an increasing range of complex molecules that present unique and often complex purification challenges. By taking advantage of antibody based selectivity, Camelid heavy-chain antibody fragments (VHHs) have proven to be a reliable immuno-affinity chromatography (IAC) solution in the downstream process of biologics. ThermoScientific™ CaptureSelect™ affinity products and analytical tools are developed for the discovery and manufacturing of even the most demanding bio-therapeutics.The affinity resins provide high target purity in a single step, independent of feedstock.
