New Flash Purification System and Columns from Biotage
Product News Oct 02, 2018
Biotage, a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, is pleased to announce the launch of Biotage® Selekt, a new flash purification system and the new Biotage® Sfär family of flash purification columns. Together these two new products provide both organic and peptide chemists the opportunity to improve their separations.
The Biotage® Selekt flash purification system is a very compact instrument with a small bench top footprint – Biotage® Sfär columns can be mounted either on the side or on the front of the instrument, again saving space in the laboratory. The instrument’s high flow and the high-pressure capability enables purification to be performed at a faster rate. Other features also help to increase the rate of purification whilst reducing solvent usage. Biotage® Selekt features a large touch screen with a completely redesigned and flexible interface, ensuring that the intuitive controls are easy to use and reducing the time needed for training.
In parallel with the new system comes Biotage® Sfär, a complete new portfolio of flash purification columns with various media and sizes ranging from 5 g to 350 g. These columns use spherical silica with a high surface area and consequently a higher loading capacity – enabling chemists to select a smaller column to perform the same separation, reducing both the amount of solvent used and the cost of the separation.
Biotage® Sfär columns are flexible, chemists can liquid or dry load the columns as they wish, as with the current Biotage columns. The new columns can be opened, and used in conjunction with Biotage Samplet® cartridges for optimum chromatography - unique to Biotage.
“The combination of the Biotage® Selekt system and Biotage® Sfär columns is a modern and state of the art total Flash Chromatography solution,” says Tobias Nordin, Global Product Manager, Flash Purification, Biotage.
