Fibrous materials are prominent among novel chromatographic supports for the separation and purification of biomolecules. In this work, strong anion exchange, quaternary ammonium (Q) functional fibrous adsorbents were evaluated with regards to their physical and functional characteristics. A column packed with Q fibrous adsorbent illustrated the good column(More)
Affinity chromatography with immobilised triazine dyes was used to separate the main enzymes present in the naringinase complex produced by Aspergillus terreus CECT 2663. One α-l-rhamnosidase and two β-d-glucosidases (βG1 and βG2) were separated by a simple two-step procedure involving chromatography with Red HE-3B immobilised on Sepharose 4B first at pH(More)
Immobilised metal ion affinity polysulfone hollow-fibre membranes, with a high capacity for protein adsorption, were prepared and their utilisation for commercial pectic enzyme fractionation was studied. The pass-through fraction containing pectinlyase is useful for fruit-juice clarification without methanol production on account of pectinesterase being(More)
Fibrous materials are proposed as novel chromatographic supports depicting high throughput and high product capacity. In this work, a composite fiber harboring strong cation-exchange moieties has been investigated. Such materials were characterized by a plethora of physical methods including degree of swelling (DS), scanning electron microscope (SEM),(More)
The preparation of megaporous bodies, with potential applications in biotechnology, was attempted by following several strategies. As a first step, naive and robust scaffolds were produced by polymerization of selected monomers in the presence of a highly soluble cross-linker agent. Ion-exchange function was incorporated by particle embedding, direct(More)
Cryogel bodies were modified to obtain epoxy groups by graft-copolymerization using both chemical and gamma irradiation initiation techniques. The free epoxy adsorbents were reacted further to introduce diethylaminoethanol (DEAE) functionalities. The resulting weak anion-exchange cryogel adsorbents showed dynamic binding capacities of ca. 27±3mg/mL, which(More)
The aim of this study was to preserve albumin nanoparticle structure/function during the lyophilisation process. Bovine serum albumin nanoparticles were obtained by γ-irradiation. Nanoparticles were lyophilised in buffer, miliQ water or in trehalose/miliQ solution. The size and charge of the nanoparticles were tested after lyophilisation by light scattering(More)
Hollow-fibre membranes with different degrees of surface hydrophilicity were obtained by grafting mixtures of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and dimethyl acrylamide (DMAA) in various proportions, and Cibacron Blue F3G-A was attached to them through ammonia or glucamine spacers. Membrane hydrophilicity increased with the amount of dimethyl acrylamide in the(More)
An on-line affinity selection method using a polymeric monolithic support is proposed for the retention of histidine-containing peptides and their subsequent separation by capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE). Monolithic capillary columns were prepared in fused-silica capillaries of 150 mum inner diameter (ID) by ionizing radiation-initiated in situ(More)
Albumin polymeric Nanoparticles (NPs) have opened a great expectancy as for controlled drug delivery due to their therapeutic potency. Concomitantly biodegradable NPs technologies with target linked structures to pave the way of personalised medicine are becoming increasingly important in sight of a therapeutically effective research technology.
