CaptureSelect CH1-XL Affinity Matrix is the improved version of CaptureSelect IgG-CH1 Affinity Matrix. The specificity is the same, but it features a wider elution range (pH 3.0–4.5), increased binding capacity, and improved stability at higher pH.

CaptureSelect CH1-XL Affinity Matrix recognizes the CH1 domain of human IgG antibodies, enabling purification of all subclasses (1, 2, 3, and 4) of human IgG and Fab fragments, independent of the light-chain isotype and source material.

CaptureSelect CH1-XL Affinity Matrix features include:
• Platform approach for purification of IgGs and their Fab fragments directly from complex source materials in a single step with high purity and yield
• Elution possible at pH 4.0–4.5 with 50 mM acetate buffer
• No co-purification of overproduced free light chain due to selectivity for the CH1 domain
• No binding to bovine antibodies, so presence of fetal bovine serum is not a problem
• Excellent pH stability up to 50 mM NaOH for limited exposure
• Excellent scalability
• Non-animal derived

Free of animal components
CaptureSelect products contain affinity ligands created by a proprietary technology based on camelid-derived single-domain antibody fragments. The ligand is a 13-kDa fragment comprising the three complementarity-determining regions (CDRs) that form the antigen-binding domain, efficiently produced by the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a production process free of animal components.
