Antibodies (immunoglobulins, Ig's) are part of the immune system. They can identify and bind particular antigens thereby neutralizing them. Due to their specific target recognition/binding function they have a significant importance in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Key applications are the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Besides, antibodies are also the crucial components in numerous research applications such as Western Blots and immunoassays. Quality and purity of the IgG is crucial for these applications. The purification of antibodies involves two to three steps:
1. capture step
2. optional intermediated step
3. polishing step
The transition from one to another step generally involves manual interaction and thus is time consuming. Automation by combining affinity chromatography step with a gel filtration step to exchange the buffer of the purified antibodies increases the efficiency and optimize the workflow.
