The presented report describes the purification, characterization, ampouling, certification and stability investigation of Prostate Specific Antigen. The intended use of the PSA CRM 613 is as a calibrant within immunological test systems. The purification of prostate specific antigen was performed via anion-exchange chromatography, gel permeation chromatography and reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography. The overall yield amounts to 20-35% lyophilized salt-free protein with a purity >98% determined by the N-terminal sequencing, total hydrolysis and other methods. The purification procedure does not lead to significant degradation e.g internal peptide bond cleavage.
