Lunch and learn about chromatography with Purolite Life Sciences

Join Purolite Life Sciences' Fred Ghanem, North American business manager, for a complimentary luncheon program about the firm's novel, agarose-based chromatography resins with uniform particle sizes, for improved purification of proteins and antibodies. The event will take place from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 in room 135 at BTEC, with a one-hour presentation beginning at 12:30 p.m.

For over 35 years, Purolite has been developing resins based on polystyrenic and polymethacrylic matrices. Recently, Purolite has invested heavily into a state-of-the-art production plant capable of supplying over a third of global demand (100 m3) for agarose-based resins per year, as well as an additional plant capable of producing uniform, ‘jetted’ agarose resin beads as small as 25 microns.

This seminar will focus on the newly-developed, jetted agarose-based chromatography platform for life science applications, including:

  • Jetted 35 μm ion exchange resins for improved selectivity and purification
  • Jetted 50 μm Protein A resins for high capacity and continuous chromatography applications, and
  • New data from Purolite's R&D program on its jetting process
