KNAUER Azura Lab Bio LC 50 is a high pressure gradient (HPG) system for the complex purification of biomolecules on a laboratory scale. All modules can be freely selected, so that for each claim the desired device configuration can be compiled. It is designed and optimized for routine analysis, method development or tasks requiring more than one separation column. The system proposal consists of two biocompatible buffer pumps for high pressure gradient formation, three freely configurable combination modules for sample injection, the column switching, for the peak parking, additional buffer and sample selection, fraction collection on a large scale, a UV/VIS detector, a high-precision online monitor for the measurement of conductivity and optionally the pH, and a fraction collector with or without cooling. The system may be controlled via user friendly FPLC software (PurityChrom). This software offers advanced algorithms for reliable and reproducible purification of the products.

Additional Features:

  • automatic sample injection by syringe or sample pump for sample loading of up to 500 ml sample volume
  • automated column switching
  • automated peak parking
  • optinally unique benchtop cooling
  • compatible to all biochromatography columns using 1/16", 1/8" or M6 fittings
  • software controlled with PurityChrom
