A Method for Separating Biological Materials

Prof. Meir Wilchek
Prof. Meir Wilchek developed a method called affinity chromatography for separating biological materials, such as enzymes, antibodies, hormones and receptors. Prior to the advent of this method, many years of research were often needed to isolate a few milligrams of a substance.


Since the 1970s, affinity chromatography has served as an important tool in all biotechnological fields, including genetic engineering and advanced fields of medicine and biology.
