Protein Chromatography

Protein Chromatography

This webinar on protein chromatography is the first part of our two-part series on protein techniques in biochemistry. Chromatography is one of the most important foundational techniques in experimental biology and biochemistry, and here you will review essentials about the three common types of protein chromatography.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Apply the 3 most common protein chromatography methods: ion-exchange, size-exclusion, and affinity

  • Calculate percent yield for enzyme purification


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The different chromatography methods (i.e. protein tags for affinity and salt eluents for ion-exchange)


On the MCAT

  • Chromatography is the foundation of experimental biochemistry and biology

  • The test favors a student who has had wet lab experience, but these concepts certainly can be learned by watching videos, reading lab technique manuals, and following along with this webinar


I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂

I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!

Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!

The wealth of information and sample questions are great.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
