GE Healthcare Launches Single-use bed Supports for AxiChrom™ Columns
Product News Dec 17, 2010
These bed supports add extra convenience when changing to new campaigns in multi-purpose facilities. AxiChrom's novel column tube swing-out makes exchange of bed support fast and easy, even for larger columns.
Many biopharmaceutical processes involve steps which contain high chloride concentrations at low pH, creating a potentially corrosive environment more suited to non-metallic materials. Plastic bed supports are now available for use with all AxiChrom columns and have the same level of regulatory compliance as the columns themselves, meeting the requirements of USP Class VI as described in USP Biological Reactivity Tests In Vivo <88> and 21 CFR Part 177. The supports are in compliance with EMEA/410/01 Rev.2 or free from animal-derived components.
AxiChrom columns simplify column handling at all scales from process development to full-scale production. Through its three key features - Intelligent Packing, intuitive handling, and predictable scale-up - AxiChrom columns introduce lean-enabling practices that make process chromatography easier, safer, and more efficient.
