Cellufine™ MAX Phenyl/Phenyl LS

Hydrophobic interaction chromatography media

Cellufine™ MAX Phenyl is an extremely useful media for the chromatography of hydrophobic proteins. Many proteins have hydrophobic acid residues which will interact with the phenyl functional groups on the surface of the cellulose beads, allowing for the efficient purification of proteins while maintaining biological activity.


This hydrophobic interaction chromatography media is available in two types which differ in functional ligand density:

  • Cellufine™ MAX Phenyl : standard
  • Cellufine™ MAX Phenyl LS: low ligand density
