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.

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. Regenerable high capacity anti-EPO gel column and buffers for research used. Custom quantities 2-10 mL are available.
Sample 10 – 20 mL urine or
0.5 – 1.0 mL serum / plasma
10 mL urine
0.5 mL serum or dried blood spot
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. Bound EPO is then released using a micro centrifuge. Sample incubates with anti-EPO affinity resin by end over end incubation for 60 – 90 min. Aqueous media is then removed by pressure format. Bound EPO is then released a using a micro centrifuge. Sample passes through a traditional regenerable anti-EPO gel column by gravity format. Flow rate 0,5 – 3mL / min.
Purified sample 35 – 55 µL 35- 50 µL 3 – 5 mL
