Use of sephacryl high resolution (HR) in tetanus anatoxin purification.

The tetanus purified anatoxin is used in the preparation of the tetanus toxoid and multiple vaccines (dT, DT and DTP), all of them strictly following specifications established by the WHO with a minimum antigenic purity equal to 1,000 Lf/mgPN. Aiming to establish more sensitive and accurate methods for purification, samples from four different lots of tetanus anatoxin were submitted to gel filtration in twenty independent trials using the Sephacryl S-100 HR and S-200 HR resins. The Authors were careful to optimize their parameters of performance as to sample volume, elution and selectivity flow for tetanus anatoxin purification, allowing their use in industrial scale. The Sephacryl S-100 HR resin presented the best selectivity, that is, the best separation, allowing a greater linear-flow and, consequently, the best purity index. Satisfactory results were also achieved with the Sephacryl S-200 HR resin after optimization of chromatographic parameters for elution flow and volume of the sample applied. The good results of purification obtained, as well as the high chemical stability, have pointed out both the Sephacryl S-100 HR and S-200 HR resins as equally efficient for industrial production.[1]
