What is CHT™ Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Media?



March 13, 2017

"For more information, visit http://www.bio-rad.com/yt/1/CHT-media CHT™ ceramic hydroxyapatite is a versatile chromatography support used for the separation of biological molecules including polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies, antibody fragments, enzymes, nucleic acids, and membrane proteins. CHT is a spherical, macroporous form of hydroxyapatite. It is a mixed-mode support with functional groups consisting of pairs of positively charged crystal calcium ions, or C-sites, and clusters of six negatively charged oxygen atoms associated with triplets of crystal phosphates, or P-sites. Bio-Rad's CHT media are innovative mixed-mode media that offer unique separation properties and unparalleled selectivity and resolution for a variety of molecules. These media can be used at any stage in a process from initial capture to final polishing. Two types of CHT media are available in three particle sizes (20, 40, and 80 µm): • Type I has a higher protein binding capacity and better capacity for acidic proteins • Type II has a lower protein binding capacity but offers better resolution of nucleic acids and certain proteins; it also has a very low affinity for albumin and is particularly well-suited for the purification of many species and classes of immunoglobulins Bio-Rad Process Separations offers a full range of chromatography solutions for process-scale biomolecule purifications.
