The new NGL COVID-19 Spike Protein Affinity Resin from Repligen binds the SARS CoV-2 Spike Protein receptor binding domain (RBD) to yield exceptional purity in a single chromatography step. Developed in partnership with Navigo Proteins and Purolite Life Sciences, the product meets all expected requirements of a high-performance resin, including very high selectivity, high dynamic binding capacities and caustic stability over multi-cycle use. Design features of the resin and example performance data will be discussed.
