Ig-Thio-Capture Beads absorbent is a chemical based immunoadsorbent aimed for the purification of immunoglobulins. Ig-Thio-Capture Beads support is based on the ability of some proteins, especially immunoglobulins, to bind to an immobilized chemical ligand that contains a sulfone group in close proximity to a thioether. The Ig-Thio-Capture Beads also termed thiophilic adsorption chromatography provides a low cost, efficient alternative to other antibody purification methods. The purification with thiophilic gel is a simple, rapid, one step purification method for antibody purification from serum, ascites or tissue culture supernatant. In addition, the method exhibits good protein recovery with excellent preservation of antibody activity due to gentle elution conditions, which usually yield concentrated, essentially salt-free, highly purified immunoglobulins at near neutral pH. The gel has a high binding capacity and it has a broad specificity toward immunoglobulins derived from various animal species irrespective of the type of immunoglobulin or the immunoglobulin subclass.
