The antibody molecule is one of the most versatile biological molecules created. Advances in immunology, biochemistry, and molecular biology have yielded a wealth of information about the structure and function of this class of proteins. The huge diversity of their binding sites allows one to acquire exquisitely specific binding reagents for almost any molecular target. Yet, the conserved nature of their constant domains as well as their characteristic three-dimensional structure allows the purification specialist to approach their recovery with much understanding of the behavior of these biomolecules. In spite of this, the adage that each monoclonal antibody is unique must be remembered, because even monoclonal antibodies from the same species, class, and subclass may behave very differently in purification procedures. With this caveat in mind, it is our hope that this review will provide a helpful guide to the purification of these fascinating biomolecules.
