A Full Range of Purification Technology, From Affinity to Ion Exchange to Reversed-Phase Chromatography

Life Technologies offers a wide range of products for bioseparations. A recent addition to the POROS® family of chromatographic resins is our CaptureSelect™ affinity products and services. These products were developed by BAC BV, a company acquired by Life Technologies in early 2013. Now, all CaptureSelect™ products are available from Life Technologies. Manufactured in a state-of-the-art chemical facility, chromatography resins and pre-packed columns from Life Technologies enable high-resolution separations combined with high capacity and robust chemical stability.

We offer:

Chromatography Resins for Process-Scale Separations


When you need high performance and high throughput on a large scale, POROS® bulk chromatography resins are used throughout the industry for process-scale bioseparations. CaptureSelect™ ligands are also available for use in large-scale manufacturing processes, and paired leakage assays offer additional tools for process development or in routine quality control processes.

Utilized in multiple processes, these high-performance resins combine optimal particle size and pore structure with a rigid backbone and proprietary chemistries. POROS® 50 µm resins demonstrate high dynamic binding capacity, capture efficiency, and resolution over a range of flow rates.
