Protein isolation and purification features

Methods article

Affinity chromatography or purification is a powerful method whereby a protein of interest is purified from other components in a crude cell lysate or other sample by virtue of its specific binding properties to an immobilized ligand. 

Methods article

What is immunoprecipitation? IP is the small-scale affinity purification of antigens using a specific antibody that is immobilized to a solid support such as magnetic particles or agarose resin.
