Abstract

"The adsorption of beta-galactosidase (BG) from solution by anti-beta-galactosidase monoclonal antibody (ABG) immobilized on nonporous, glass coated beads has been studied in a stirred batch adsorber at 4, 8, 15, and 20°C and for different initial BG concentrations. The elution of BG from the BG-ABG complex was also examined. The experiments performed in this work provided data from which information may be obtained about the influence of the concentration of BG and of the temperature on the dynamics of the adsorption of BG onto immobilized ABG, as well as on the total amount of BG adsorbed at equilibrium. Such experimental data may be used in studies involving the modelling of the kinetics of adsorption of BG onto immobilized ABG"--Abstract, page ii.
