1. Immunoadsorbent
A substance used to separate antigen s from a mixture, usually as a part of immunoaffinity chromatography . The immunoadsorbent is a solid matrix to which antibodies are bound; as the mixture flows through the column and past the stationary immunoadsorbent within, the antigens become attached to the antibodies and stay within the column while the rest of the mixture continues through to the end.

2. Immunoaffinity chromatography
A type of column chromatography which is used to separate antigen s from a mixture. The lab technique makes use of an immunoadsorbent -- a solid, stationary matrix within the column to which antibodies are attached. As the mixture flows through the column, the antibodies bind to the antigens; the antigens thus stay within the column while the rest of the mixture continues through to the end. The antigens are then flushed out of the column and collected separately.
