SynCo's and CBLI's development team's mixture of experience and intuition led them to recommend hydrophobic interaction chromatography as the next step after ion exchange, despite it usually being avoided if at all possible, due to its variable, and somewhat unpredictable performance.
TDMAC molecules are also shown to retain the neutral antibiotic vancomycin and proteins such as the tissue plasminogen activator on plastics, probably through the hydrophobic interaction (27).
