Praesto Epoxy resins have been designed to offer a simple solution  for ligand immobilization onto an agarose chromatography matrix, which can be utilized to make customized affinity media. This enables rapid scale-up from R&D to large-scale bioprocess production columns.

Praesto Epoxy resins offer the versatility to couple ligands through primary amine, hydroxyl and thiol groups. The resin design incorporates a spacer which separates the ligand from the chromatography carrier, enabling maximum efficiency of the ligand. The epoxide group forms a stable linkage between the matrix and ligand, which has very low ligand leakage and high caustic stability.
