Lab on a Bead's concept for antibody purification using LOABeads magnetic beads and LOABeads MagSep separators can be used in a wide variety of applications. From small scale screening of several samples in parallel to purification of antibodies from tens or hundreds of milliliters sample volumes. The beads are also perfect for use in applications where multiple ligands are bound subsequently to the beads, for example in immunoprecipitation and various biosensors

Application notes

LOABeads PrtA30

Parallel purification of scFv antibody fragments using LOABeads™ PrtA30 (PDF)
In this study, LOABeads PrtA30 were used together with a KingFisher™ Flex robot and the LOABeads MagSep separators, to purify expressed scFv antibody fragments from 500 ml bacterial cultures. A high purity was achieved for the four different scFv proteins that were purified and they were shown to be active in an ELISA test.

Time study of parallel mAb purification from clarified CHO-cell broth at 1ml LOABeads™ PrtA30 scale (PDF)
This application not compares the LOABeads system to instrument operated column chromatography. Monoclonal antibodies were purified from four 200 ml CHO-cell culture samples using 1 ml LOABeads PrtA30 for each and the LOABeads MagSep separators. At this scale, the four antibody samples were processed faster than an estimated purification of one single sample on a column chromatography instrument.

LOABeads PrtA60

A comperative test chromatography vs LOABbeads PrtA60 (PDF)
In this study antibody purification using LOABeads PrtA60 was compared to lab-scale column chromatography, with regards to yield, concentration and purity.

Immunoprecipitation efficiency for short time pulldowns using LOABeads™ PrtA60 (PDF)
The recovery efficiency for immunoprecipitation of human ferritin using LOABeads PrtA60 was measured with a ruthenium based immunoassay, showing that the recovery was very high.

As an alternative, LOABeads IP30 could also be used in this type of immunoprecipitation experiment and be expected to perform equally well.

Label-free bead-based metallothionein electrochemical immunosensor
LOABeads PrtA60 was coated with chicken IgY which specifically recognized metallothionein. The coating was obtained via rabbit IgG raised against chicken IgY, which was bound directly to the beads. Using the Brdicka reaction in a microfluidic 3D-printed chip, it was possible to detect metallothionein in patient samples.

Highly specific and rapid immuno-fluorescent visualization and detection of E. coli O104:H4 with protein-A coated magnetic beads based LST-MUG assay
LOABeads PrtA60 was coated with an antibody recognizing E. coli O104:H4 and the beads were then bound to whole E. coli. By letting the E. coli with bound magnetic beads grow in LST-MUG media, it was possible to detect low concentrations of E. coli using fluorescence.

Analysis of serum transthyretin by on-line immunoaffinity solid-phase extraction capillary electrophoresis mass spectrometry using magnetic beads
LOABeads PrtA60 and AffiActive10 was used for immunoprecipitation of transthyretin from serum samples in an on-line immonprecipitation method. In comparison with Protein A magnetic beads from other manufacturers, LOABeads PrtA60 had higher recovery and better repeatability. LOABeads AffiActive10 had the advantage that the antibody did not elute and interfere with detection and was therefore preferred.
