Process Chromatography: Five Decades of Innovation
October 1, 2007

Low-pressure process chromatography could not have developed without immense efforts to resolve scale-up issues in both column design and matrix stability.

HISTORY OF CHROMATOGRAPHY: Process Chromatography: Five Decades of Innovation
February 2, 2007

This article explores the development of process chromatography. Process chromatography was first applied to the removal of low molecular weight solutes from whey by gel filtration about 50 years ago. An analytical method using size exclusion chromatography was scaled up for insulin production in the 1970s, when ion exchange became a viable technology for the same application. Ion exchange was adopted as the industry workhorse as robust resins became available and formed the backbone of chromatographic processing of blood plasma fractionation in alternatives to and extensions of ethanol precipitation.

Affinity Chromotography - from Textile Dyes to Synthetic Ligands by Design, Part 2
