This review focuses on capillary electrophoretic separations performed on capillary electrophoresis chips (CE chips) with hydrodynamically closed separation systems in a context with transport processes (electroosmotic flow (EOF)) and hydrodynamic flow (HDF)) that may accompany the separations in these devices. It also reflects some relevant works dealing(More)
The use of a poly(methylmethacrylate) chip, provided with a pair of on-line coupled separation channels and on-column conductivity detectors, to isotachophoresis (ITP) separations of optical isomers was investigated. Single-column ITP, ITP in the tandem-coupled columns, and concentration-cascade ITP in the tandem-coupled columns were employed in this(More)
In protein chromatography, the size of the protein determines which fraction of pores it can access within a resin and at which rate of diffusion. Moreover, in the presence of grafted polymers like in advanced materials, adsorbed proteins and electrolytes complicate the interaction pore-protein. In this study, we evaluated in a comparative way the behavior(More)
A two-step chromatography process for monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification from clarified cell culture supernatant (cCCS) was developed using cation exchange Multicolumn Countercurrent Solvent Gradient Purification (MCSGP) as a capture step. After an initial characterization of the cell culture supernatant the capture step was designed from a batch(More)
A novel cation-exchange resin, Eshmuno™ S, was compared to Fractogel® SO3(-) (M) and Toyopearl GigaCap S-650M. The stationary phases have different base matrices, and carry specific types of polymeric surface modifications. Three monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were used as model proteins to characterize these chromatographic resins. Results from gradient(More)
The mobile phase pH is a key parameter of every ion exchange chromatography process. However, mechanistic insights into the pH influence on the ion exchange chromatography equilibrium are rare. This work describes a mechanistic model capturing salt and pH influence in ion exchange chromatography. The pH dependence of the characteristic protein charge and(More)
A fast isocratic HPLC method for analysis of steviol glycosides from Stevia rebaudiana leaves was developed with a high selectivity for nine known steviol glycosides and low eluent consumption. The analytical method was performed on a Purospher® STAR RP-18 endcapped 3 μm Hibar® RT 250-4.6 column at 50 °C with an eluent composition of water (65 vol. %) and(More)
The cation-exchange capture step of a monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification process using single column batch and multicolumn continuous chromatography (MCSGP) was modeled with a lumped kinetic model. Model parameters were experimentally determined under analytical and preparative conditions: porosities, retention factors and mass transfer parameters of(More)
An innovative chromatographic process idea for preparative purification of rebaudioside A from aqueous extracts of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni leaves is developed. The process can handle high concentrated aqueous extracts, needs less equipment and has a lower solvent consumption compared to the state-of-the-art purification process of rebaudioside A. The(More)
The performance of functionalized materials, such as cation exchange resins, is dependent not only on the ligand type and ligand density, but also on the pore accessibility of the target molecule. In the case of large molecules such as antibodies this latter parameter becomes crucial, because the size of such molecules falls somewhere inside the pore size(More)
