affinity chromatography

Broad Matrix Range for Efficient, Scalable Biomolecule Purification

Affinity Chromatography

Affinity chromatography offers a highly specific interaction between a target molecule and its ligand. This interaction reduces major contaminants to a low level within a single step. Sartorius offers multiple affinity chromatography matrices with high binding capacities, in a variety of selectivities to purify recombinant proteins, albumin, enzymes coagulation factors (ATIII), plasminogen, growth hormones, monoclonal antibodies, and mRNA.

Full scalability

Affinity matrices scalable from benchtop to commercial manufacturing

Superior purification

Affinity ligands achieve high purity for a broad range of molecules

High productivity

Plug-and-play chromatography matrices allow high-speed processing without sacrificing capacity

Choose the Right Affinity Matrix for Your Application

Chromatography matrices are not one-size-fits-all. Choosing the matrix best suited for your application will ensure streamlined process development, scale-up, and manufacturing without sacrificing purification performance.
