Purification Of An Acidic IgM For Large Biomolecule Purification

Molecule

IgM antibodies are one of the fastest growing groups of diagnostic and therapeutic candidates. The large size of IgMs makes their purification very challenging. Bio-Rad has developed a new strong anion exchange resin (AEX), Nuvia HP-Q, to overcome the multiple issues faced when purifying large biomolecules. Purification of an acidic IgM was performed using Nuvia HP-Q Resin, which resulted in good binding and purification. Further polishing of the Nuvia HP-Q eluate pool on the mixed-mode CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Media led to highly pure IgM, with minimal product- and process-related impurities. The workflow resulted in >99% IgM purity, as measured by size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and SDS-PAGE analysis. This AEX-based purification platform helps overcome the limitations of traditional ion exchange resins for IgM purification and provides a successful and scalable platform strategy. The purified IgM is suitable for diagnostic applications and potentially for pharmaceutical applications.
