Abstract Protein A chromatography is an excellent technique for the purification of monoclonal antibodies. However, the presence of Protein A in therapeutic monoclonal antibody preparations due to leaching has been linked with toxicity in animals and humans. Two sandwich ELISAs were developed to monitor Protein A column leaching: (1) rabbit anti-Protein A for capture and anti-Protein A F(ab')2-HRP for detection; and (2) rabbit anti-Protein A for capture and anti-Protein A-biotin for detection. The biotin ELISA is sensitive to the subnanogram range. In addition, these assays were used to develop DEAE and gel filtration chromatography techniques that substantially reduce Protein A levels in monoclonal antibodies purified by Protein A chromatography.
