New Performance Data for EndoTrap®

A new study evaluates the endotoxin removal efficiency of four endotoxin removal resins from different suppliers, including EndoTrap® HD:

 

EndoTrap® HD - High-Definition Endotoxin Removal

Reich et al. (Univ. Regensburg) studied endotoxin removal and sample recovery rates of four commercially available affinity chromatography resins.

To this end, BSA samples [1 mg/ml] in commonly used buffers (Borate, TRIS, MES and Acetate) containing 15,000 EU/ml E.coli 055:B5 LPS, were purified with each 1 ml of the different resins in gravity flow columns according to the manufacturers’ instructions.

EndoTrap® HD supplied by Hyglos was shown to be the most effective resin for removing endotoxins in comparison to the other resins tested. Furthermore, the purification with the other resins resulted in higher sample loss.

Results:

Table 1. BSA samples [1 ml of 1 mg/ml] in 20mM Borate buffer, 150 mM NaCl, 0.1 mM CaCl2,
pH 9, containing 15,000 EU/ml were purified with the indicated resins.

EndoTrap® HD >99.99%  100%
Pierce High Capacity Resin   51.71%    98%
EndoBind-R™ >99.99%    87%
ToxinEraser™ >99.99%    84%

 

Table 2. BSA samples [1 ml of 1 mg/ml] in 20 mM TRIS, 150 mM NaCl, 0.1 mM CaCl2 pH 7.4, containing 15,000 EU/ml were purified with the indicated resins.
