A process for purifying crude collagenase is disclosed. The collagenase purification process includes providing a stabilized crude collagenase solution containing collagenase, pigment, toxins, bacterial materials, and proteolytic enzyme impurities including clostripain, trypsin, and caseinase. The stabilized collagenase solution is applied to hydroxylapatite packing. pigment and caseinase are eluted with a first solution comprising about 0.05 M to about 0.3 M phosphate buffer, and then collagenase, trypsin, and clostripain are eluted with a second solution comprising about 0.35 M to about 0.5 M phosphate buffer to provide a first collected solution. The first collected solution is then applied to gel filtration packing and collagenase and clostripain are eluted with a neutral pH buffer solution, to provide a second collected solution. The second collected solution is then applied to Reactive Red 120-Agarose packing and collagenase is eluted with a neutral pH buffer solution to provide purified collagenase. The process provides extremely pure collagenase in high yield with reduced consumption of eluting solutions and avoids unpredictable gradient eluting techniques.
