Affinity Chormatography Removes Endotoxins

Protein solutions used for research, vaccines, or therapeutics need to be free of contaminants. One of the chief concerns is the presence of endotoxins (lipopolysaccharides) because their removal from protein solutions is a challenge. Typically, removal techniques utilize adsorption onto surfaces of beads in batch reactions, onto beads packed in columns, or onto membrane surfaces.
