Understanding operational system differences for transfer of miniaturized chromatography column data using simulations

In this paper, a simulation tool was employed to identify and appropriately incorporate differences between MiniColumns and benchtop column systems. It was first demonstrated that including multi-step gradients and fraction collection into the simulations resulted in improved agreement between simulated and experimental linear gradient profiles as well as calculated first moments in the MiniColumn experiments. Step elution experiments of binary mixtures (a monoclonal antibody and one of three model proteins) were then carried out to examine comparability of the MiniColumns to the benchtop system. Although the peak shapes were qualitatively similar, peak elution began earlier in the MiniColumn system while improved separation was observed between overlapping peaks using the benchtop format. Simulations were then carried out to demonstrate that increased dispersion of the eluent breakthrough in the benchtop system could readily explain these observed differences. Importantly, by incorporating these system differences into the simulations, we were able to predict benchtop step elution performance using the parameters solely obtained from the MiniColumns. The findings presented in this paper illustrate that the appropriate consideration of system differences can facilitate the implementation of miniature chromatography columns as scale-down models for bioprocess development.
