Higher hydrophobicity of HIC stationary phase

BioPro HIC BF shows the stronger retention of proteins due to the higher hydrophobicity of its stationary phase compared to the other commercially available HIC columns. This indicates that BioPro HIC BF could be preferred for the separation of low hydrophobic proteins.

Designed for separation of low hydrophobic proteins

Analysis of oxidized MAb samples, an example for biopharmaceutical characterization, is shown here.
BioPro HIC BF having strong hydrophobic retention could be preferred for such analysis because the oxidized MAb variants elute earlier than the nonoxidized MAb.

Analysis of oxidized MAb

NISTmAb was treated with tert-butyl hydroperoxide (t-BHP) as an oxidant in order to promote the oxidation. The oxidized MAb was analyzed by using BioPro HIC BF column.
Under the ammonium sulfate condition (a), four peaks appeared at earlier elution times compared to the peak of the nonoxidized MAb, presumably due to the conformational changes via the oxidization of the methionine residues.
Under the sodium chloride condition (b), eight peaks appeared at earlier elution times compared to the peak of the nonoxidized MAb. Such a better resolution was achieved with the shorter analysis time compared with under the ammonium sulfate condition (a).

Analysis of papain-digested oxidized MAb

The papain-digests of NISTmAb samples with and without the oxidization were analyzed by using BioPro HIC BF column.
The Fab and Fc fragments were characterized from the chromatogram of the papain-digested MAb.
In the chromatogram of the papain-digested oxidized MAb, the multiple peaks appeared at earlier elution times compared to the peaks assigned to the Fab and Fc fragments, and would be corresponding to the oxidized fragments.
According to the previous report*, the oxidized fragments elute earlier than the nonoxidized ones.

Excellent peak shape under high loading condition

BioPro HIC BF shows excellent peak shape even under high loading conditions. This leads to effective for laboratory-scale purification and detection of minor constituents by the large volume injection.
