Resolving Precipitation Issues of an Antibody-Fusion During Protein A Purification Through Flocculation 

R Pagila*, M. Stroud and T Myles Protein Science Division, Aragen Bioscience, Morgan Hill, CA

 Abstract 

Two distinct antibody-fusion proteins that share a common fusion partner have the propensity to precipitate upon elution during Protein A purification. Further precipitation occurs upon pH neutralization of the pH 3 eluted antibody-fusion protein. After removing the precipitate, the remaining soluble antibody fusion was highly aggregated when assessed by analytical SEC. A flocculation strategy was employed on clarified cell culture harvests to resolve these precipitation issues.
