Two different types of counter-current chromatographs, the cross-axis coil planet centrifuge (X-axis CPC) and horizontal flow-through coil planet centrifuge (horizontal CPC), were evaluated for protein separation with an aqueous-aqueous two-phase polymer system. The sample solution, containing 10-200 mg each of cytochrome c, myoglobin, ovalbumin and hemoglobin in 2 ml of each phase was eluted with the lower phase. In both instruments, the effects of the flow-rate, revolution speed, and parameter beta (helical diameters of the multilayer coil) on the protein separation were investigated. The best results were obtained from the X-axis CPC operated at 750 rpm and a flow-rate of 2.0 ml/min using a multilayer coil with a small helical diameter (beta = 0.25-0.60). Four protein samples were well resolved in less than 5 h.
