A new high-capacity, high-resolution, salt-tolerant strong anion exchange (AEX) resin offers biochromatographers superior performance, driving higher product yield, improved product purity, and greater process flexibility in either bind and elute or flow-through modes. The POROS XQ Chromatography Resin from Thermo Fisher Scientific provides optimized bead morphology and unique surface chemistry to improve anion exchange chromatography.

Built on the unique POROS bead platform, POROS XQ allows high-capacity and high-resolution separations, driving efficient impurity clearance and, ultimately, higher product yields. High binding capacity for proteins and impurities enable robust and efficient bind and elute or flow through applications.

Thermo Fisher will display the new POROS XQ Chromatography Resin this week at the BioProcess International Conference and Exhibition, October 21-23, 2014 at the Hynes Convention Center, Booth #301.

"The POROS high performing chromatography resins provide unique performance attributes and drive benefits to downstream processing," said Christine Gebski, M.S, product management director, POROS Chromatography, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Now, POROS XQ extends these established benefits to AEX chromatography."

High-dynamic binding capacity capability allows researchers to use a smaller column size than typical resins, decreasing water and buffer use. With robust salt tolerance, the resin offers scientists process design flexibility and a streamlined process flow. The POROS resin's Rigid 50 m polymeric beads also feature fully quaternized surface chemistry, allowing for unique selectivity, as well as linear, predictable scalability and performance that is independent of the process throughput.
