cellufine lineup cellufine lineup


The Cellufine product line consists of chromatography media designed for the purification of proteins, enzymes, and other biomolecules. This media line is based on spherical cellulose beads, which exhibit high chemical stability, high mechanical strength, and inherent biocompatibility. These Cellufine chromatography products are ideally suited for the purification of biopharmaceuticals and food products. And leachables from cellulose-based media are significantly lower than for comparable polymeric beads.
Cellufine chromatography products are appropriate for all chromatographic techniques. Gel Filtration, Ion Exchange, Affinity, and Hydrophobic Interaction chromatography media are available for purification of a broad range of target molecules. In addition, JNC Corp. can provide custom media, such as big beads or special affinity ligands, for use in challenging purification process.

Typical applications include protein and polysaccharide purification, and endotoxin removal. Cellufine media is used worldwide in chromatographic purification of vaccines, therapeutic enzymes and proteins, and virus concentration/purification.

Cellufine chromatography media is
based on porous,
spherical cellulose bead architecture optimized for large scale biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

JNC pioneered cellulose bead formation technology, providing robust, spherical, porous beads optimized for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Cellulose based chromatography media can be efficiently packed in deep beds in chromatography columns and can be operated at high linear velocity flow rates with low backpressure.

Flexible modification of the basic cellulose matrix polymer with different ligands facilitates the purification of a broad range of biomolecules.


The Product Range of
Cellufine Chromatograpy Media

Cellufine media products are appropriate for all modes of chromatography: Ion Exchange, Affinity, Hydrophobic Interaction, Mix mode and Gel Filtration. The table below lists available standard products. In addition, customized products can be developed by modifying bead size, porosity, and ligand chemistry. Cellufine products are packaged in a variety of container sizes ranging from 10 ml to 10 L. In addition to standard bottles, most products are available in pre-packed mini-column formats with media volumes of 1 to 5 ml. Larger packaging size containers are available on request.
