2 Outline Background Why an anion exchanger? Alternatives Design Resins Cost of chosen design Questions

3 Background Ions are electrostatically bound to an insoluble and chemically inert matrix – Anion exchangers bear positively charged functional groups that bind negatively charged particles. During elution the anion exchanger can be described by the following chemical equation:

4 Why an anion exchanger? Assumptions Denatured insulin had a 0% binding efficiency Insulin-Ester had a 100% binding efficiency and 90% recovery Isoelectric point of Denatured Insulin is higher than Insulin-Ester Component Flowrate (kg/batch) Mass Percent (%) Conc. (g/L) Denatured Insulin Insulin-Ester Water

5 Anion Exchanger Advantages Capable of handling large volumes Efficient, precise separation – Accurate separation of Insulin ester and denatured Insulin 1

6 Large pressure drop – Require expensive pumps High resolution requires small beads – Small beads decrease flow rate Each cycle requires several stages – Charging, sample input, washing, elution, cleaning Anion Exchanger Disadvantages

7 Alternatives Membrane Chromatography Exclusion Chromatography Affinity Chromatography 23 4

8 Membrane Chromatography Allows for much larger throughput (about 100 times that of ion exchange) and a higher efficiency Uses microporous membrane Small pressure drop compared to traditional ion exchangers Scaling up separation is simplified

9 Exclusion Chromatography Separates on basis of Molecular Mass Column is filled with semi- solid beads of a polymeric gel – The porosity of the gel can be changed as to exclude molecules of a set size Useful for samples containing many types of proteins 5

10 Affinity Chromatography Matrix anchored ligand – Specifically binds to protein of interest Can exploit protein’s unique biochemical properties instead of charge in ion exchange Requires low flowrates 8

11 Anion Exchanger Design Ergun Equation for pressure drop in a packed bed

12 Design Considerations PropertyDimension Bead Diameter, D P 35μm Column Lenth, L3.47m Column Diameter, D1.3 m Pressure Drop, ΔP1718 kPa Void Fraction, ε0.4 Vessel Volume4604 L All constants were taken from Perry’s Chemical Engineering Handbook 7

13 Vessel Sizing Exchanger is very large – Much larger than needed, however, this will save on pumping costs Total flow rate through the anion exhanger is x m 3 /s – Based on 80h batch time and 826kg/batch – Scaled up by a factor of 6

16 Resins Serves as the media for stationary phase – Polymeric matrix with immobilized charged functional groups Quaternary Ammonium functional group Diethylaminoethane functional group Can be regenerated in the columns and used for many production cycles – anionic resin: ,000 cycles 8
