EPO Purification

Easy-to-use EPO Purification kits from MAIIA Diagnostics offer a unique system for rapid immuno-affinity purification and concentration of erythropoietins (EPO) from aqueous media such as urine, serum, plasma or cellculture medium.

The anti-EPO column in the kits is immobilized with anti-EPO antibody which captures both endogenous erythropoietin (hEPO) and recombinant erythropoietin (rhEPO) such as Epoetins, NESP, CERA and EPO-Fc. The kits are intended to be used as a preanalytical sample preparation step for further analysis with techniques such as isoelectric focusing (IEF), SARCOSYL polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SAR-PAGE) and Membrane Assisted Isoform ImmunoAssay (MAIIA). Several purifications can simultaneously be handled if using appropriate laboratory equipment.

EPO Purification Gel (Art.1271)
Description   25 disposable anti-EPO columns and buffers included in the kit. Suitable for few purifications per day. 25 disposable anti-EPO gel columns and buffers included in the kit. Suitable for running many purifications simultaneously, typical 100 or more per day. One regenerable high capacity anti-EPO gel column and buffers for research used. Custom quantities 2-10 mL are available.
Sample capacity 10 – 20 mL urine or
0.5 – 1.0 mL serum / plasma
(Art. 1410) 10 mL urine
(Art. 1430) 0.5 mL serum/plasma or 1-3 dried blood spot discs
For larger sample volumes or high EPO concentrations such as cellculture medium. Bindingcapacity 100 – 400 µg EPO / 2 mL gel depending on EPO variant.
Purification  Sample passes through a membrane with immobilized anti-EPO antibodies by pressure format. Flow rate 1mL / min. The bound EPO in the membrane is then released with elution buffer and spin off by using a micro centrifuge. Sample incubates with anti-EPO resin by end over end incubation for 90-120 min. Aqueous media is then removed by pressure format. The bound EPO in the resin is then released with elution buffer and spin off by using a micro centrifuge. Sample passes through a traditional regenerable anti-EPO gel column by gravity format. Flow rate 0,5 – 3mL / min. The bound EPO is then released with elution buffer in the same way.
Purified sample 35 – 55 µL 35 – 50 µL 3 – 5 mL
