The characteristics of short, fibrous supports for chromatographic separations of biomolecules have been studied. A non-porous, silica-based fiber with an anion-exchange functionality was developed, and the performance of this support for protein separations was determined. It was established that the short-fiber column exhibits a low pressure drop, allowing separations to be performed at elevated flow-rates. The dynamic adsorption capacity of the column for three proteins, myoglobin, ovalbumin and bovine serum albumin, have been determined as a function of solution pH and salt concentration. It has been shown that the column can be used to separate mixtures of these proteins at elevated flow-rates.
