ImmunoReagents Introduces LigaTrap™ Purification Resins and Kits

News Release,

February 15, 2016
RALEIGH, NC, USA –ImmunoReagents is proud to announce LigaTrap™ purification resins and kits.

LigaTrap™ technology utilizes novel, patented ligands, designed for antibody purification. Each kit includes 10 spin columns filled with LigaTrap™ resin and buffers needed to capture species-specific antibodies.

LigaTrap™ resins bind an exceptionally broad range of recombinant, monoclonal, and human/animal source polyclonal immunoglobulins. These resins provide distinct advantages to traditional bind and elute purification resins including higher pH elution of target antibodies. With LigaTrap™ resins, antibodies are eluted at pH 4.0, which is less likely to cause antibody aggregation sometimes found with lower pH elutions used with Protein A/G resins.

“There is an ongoing need in the research, biopharmaceutical, diagnostic and life sciences communities for novel products related to antibody and protein purification,” said ImmunoReagents CEO Dr. Ann Black. “Working with LigaTrap™ Technologies, ImmunoReagents is commercializing a series of innovative antibody and protein purification kits with substantial advantages over current technologies.”
