Can I use protein A or MabSelectSure (GE) for removal of Fc-fragments?

Genovis has chosen CaptureSelect in the FabRICATOR Fab2 Kit for removal of Fc fragments. CaptureSelect has a very high specific affinity for the Fc. Both protein A and MabSelect Sure (GE) may have affinity for the Fab which may result in a lower recovery of the generated F(ab’)2 fragments and the degree of affinity is antibody dependent. We have many customer reports on this subject, and they usually come back to us for the CaptureSelect columns for the above reason.
