HPLC Usage in Vaccine Research

A variety of techniques are used in the research and production of vaccines or active pharmaceutical ingredients. These techniques need to be optimally combined to deliver results that contribute to a better understanding of the processes at the molecular level. Based on this knowledge, scientists are looking for specific targets for treatment. This strategy also applies to research in the field of "severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2" or SARS-CoV-2 for short.



Versatile Capabilities for HPLC in SARS-CoV-2 Research

In contrast to many biochemical or visualizing processes, liquid chromatography (HPLC) is far less in the spotlight.  Rather, liquid chromatography works behind the scenes wherever complex mixtures need to be separated or a single product must be of high purity. A high purity of the target substance is often a prerequisite so that the other methods mentioned above can provide meaningful results.

Liquid chromatography is a central tool in research revolving around vaccine and therapeutic development for SARS-CoV-2. Knauer has more than 55 years of experience in research and is a committed partner to help you advance SARS-CoV-2 research. Chromatography is not only limited to one aspect of research, it can be used in multiple ways ranging from analytical tasks to preparative purification and protein purification.

Protein Purification – FPLC Supports Structure Analysis of the Virus

There are several SARS-CoV-2 proteins that are important targets for vaccination and antiviral strategies. Structural data of these proteins provides valuable information for the development of drugs or vaccines. One of the important steps on the way to structural analysis is the purification of proteins in solution. FPLC (fast protein liquid chromatography) is the method of choice for your protein purification.

RNA Purification – Fighting COVID-19 with RNA

RNA therapeutics are a hot topic in the race for a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Tailor made RNA can be used to induce the human body to produce therapeutic proteins by itself, which in turn help the immune system to fight the virus. Purification of the to be used RNA is of great importance to secure high quality of the product and circumvent unwanted side effects.



Knauer has developed the RNA Purifier, a preparative HPLC system for the batch purification of RNA. The system, with precise ternary pump, UV detection and temperature control, supports your RNA research by reliably fractionating and purifying your valuable samples from by-products.

The system can be optimally used at flow rates between 10 and 80 ml/min at max. 400 bar and can collect the fractions according to peak signal. An eluent heater and a column heating sleeve ensure exact temperatures even at high flow rates. The temperatures measured at the column inlet and outlet are recorded within the software. This configuration allows efficient purification of RNA therapeutics candidates for SARS-CoV-2 control.
