Native elution in immunoaffinity chromatography enables highly effective virus purification

Downstream processing of viruses in virus vaccine or virus vector production accounts for up to 70% of the overall production costs. Immunoaffinity chromatography is a powerful purification technique due to its high specificity but is disadvantageous by the fact that the elution conditions are often detrimental for both the immobilized proteins and target antigens, especially viruses.
This application note describes the mumps virus purification using monolith-based immunoaffinity stationary phase and recently invented native elution of the bound viruses using amino acid solutions under physiological pH.
