Abstract

Rigid macroporous cross-linked cellulose beads were prepared and used as a useful affinity medium for purification of A. niger cellulase from commercial preparation, in batch; packed bed and expanded bed modes. The beads bound 99% activity in both packed bed and expanded bed modes and upto 91% activity could be recovered by washing the adsorbent with 1 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.0. While batch adsorption and elution gave only 4-fold purification, packed bed operation gave 14-fold purification and expanded bed, the highest, 36-fold purification.
