The influence of whole yeast cells (0-15% w/v) on the protein adsorption performance in dye-ligand chromatography was explored. The adsorption of a model protein, bovine serum albumin (BSA), was selected to demonstrate this approach. The UpFront adsorbent (ρ = 1.5 g/cm3) derivatised with Cibacron Blue 3GA and a commercially available expanded bed column (20 mm i.d.) from UpFront Chromatography, Denmark, were employed in the batch binding and expanded bed operation. The BSA binding capacity was demonstrated to not be adversely affected by the presence of yeast cells. The dynamic binding capacity of BSA at a C/C0 = 0.1 biomass concentration of 5, 10, 15% w/v were 9, 8, and 7.5 mg/mL of settled adsorbent; respectively.
