Chromatography is a separation method for soluble mixtures and isolated components. The basis of chromatography is the difference in migration and the selectable delay of soluble molecules passing through the particle bed of the resin. The carrier fluid of the soluble components in the column is used for washing, which is known as the moving phase. A substance that stays in the column and affects the separation is called a stagnant phase. In Gas Chromatography (GC), the phase is a gas. GC is used extensively as a parsing tool for the separation of relatively volatile components. For example, three soluble components of a mixture injected into a column lead to three distinct points, by the detector, in the analysis of the output.

Stoichiometry of microorganisms

Chromatography is a high-resolution technique. Therefore, this method is suitable for the recycling of high purity medications and therapies. Different chromatographic methods are available to purify proteins, amino acids, nucleic acids, alkaloids, vitamins, steroids, and many other biological materials. These methods include absorption chromatography, split chromatography, ion exchange chromatography, gel chromatography, and mixed-interest chromatography. These methods differ in the principles of workmanship, whereby molecules move in the chromatography column and slow down. There are several distinct chromatographic methods:


  • Split chromatography
  • Ionic exchange chromatography, such as carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), agarose and/or dextrin.
  • Gel chromatography or molecular sieve chromatography, such as polyacrylamide gels.
  • The compounding chromatography, which is the bonding of biological molecules to the bed matrix, is sometimes used for antibodies and antigens.

In adsorption chromatography, the bed has specific properties for absorbing soluble matter. Substrates produced for adsorption chromatography, silica gel, aluminum oxide, and charcoal.

Medical Biochemistry Scope & Importance

In ion exchange chromatography, agarose, dextrose and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) are used as the substrate for isolation. In-gel chromatography, the bases are essentially molecular sieves, such as acrylamide gels. In compound hybrid chromatography, the adsorber bed is a sticky biologically molecule that is capable of absorbing antibodies or antigens. So there is a good mix of product separation.
