Abstract

The intent of this project was to determine optimal separation conditions for the use of affinity partitioning to separate human serum albumin from chicken egg whites. The two-phase PEG-DEX system was analyzed and the use of a PEG-palmitate affinity ligand was investigated. It was our goal to determine the system conditions that would lead to the highest possible recovery of HSA from the system. Also completed was a proposal for an industrial-scale separation process for the system conditions that were deemed optimal.
