Gradient capable FPLC system

for complex applications including automated two step applications

for up to 50 mL/min

The AZURA Bio Lab System Advanced is a gradient system for complex purifications of bio molecules in a laboratory scale. It is designed and optimized for all FPLC applications like affinity, ion exchange, hydrophobic interaction and size exclusion chromatography. All system modules can be freely exchanged and further modules can be added optionally, to give you the best configuration for your purification task.

In TwoStep mode, a column selection valve will allow you to switch between a multitude of different columns, which in combination with an optional outlet valve allows even for automated two step purifications.

Due to its modular design, the system can be easily up scaled to higher flow rates by simply replacing the pump head, valves, flow cell and capillaries. The basic devices do not need to be replaced. The next scale-up level allows flow rates up to 200 ml/min at 200 bar. The 1/16″ capillaries are exchanged for 1/8″ capillaries. Higher sample volumes are injected via a channel of the gradient pump. The modules of the HPLC docking station and the valves are exchanged within minutes and allow to flexibly adapt the system to changing purification tasks.
