General description

HIS-Select High Flow Nickel Affinity Gel is an immobilized metal-ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) gel that is designed to specifically bind His-tag proteins (histidine containing proteins) in chromatographic systems with pressures up to 200 psi and a maximum linear flow rate of 3,000 cm/hr.


1, 10, 25, 100, 500 mL


Affinity gel is suitable for the purification of histidine tagged proteins (His-tag proteins) in native and denaturing conditions.
Nickel Affinity Gel for the purification of His-tag® proteins (histidine tagged proteins). HIS-Select® High Flow (HF) brings the superior selectivity of HIS-Select technology to a highly cross-linked agarose for higher flow rates and mechanical stability under pressure. HIS-Select HF is designed for production scale purification and FPLC applications. As with other HIS-Select products, the non-charged, hydrophilic linkage of the nickel-nitrilotriacetic acid (Ni-NTA) chelate group to the agarose ensures true one-step purification.

Features and Benefits

  • High selectivity for higher purity
  • Unique non-charged hydrophilic linkage reduced non-specific binding
  • Binding Capacity for histidine-tagged protein (His-tag protein) is greater than 15 mg/mL
  • Highly cross-linked agarose matrix allows for purification under higher pressures
  • Binding under denaturing or non-denaturing conditions
  • One-step purification

Physical form

1:1 suspension in a 30% ethanol solution

Preparation Note

Ethanol must be removed prior to use. Wash affinity gel in deionized water to remove the ethanol, then equilibrate with equilibration buffer that is provided.
