GE Healthcare is releasing its new ÄKTA pure chromatography system for protein purification. The company promises that the system can purify any protein or biomolecule that a study requires.
The device was designed for ease of use with software that doesn’t require programming skills, but rather relies on a drag and drop interface. The modular design allows different pumps and valves and other hardware to be integrated as needed.
From the announcement:
In today’s research environment, scientists are often expected to undertake all aspects of the protein discovery workflow, from genomics through to purification and characterisation, and the requirement to isolate specific proteins at high purity in short timelines often means that chromatography conditions and methodologies have become more challenging. ÄKTA pure is specifically designed to enable researchers – from beginners to experts – to easily isolate their target protein, whether under simple or complex conditions.
ÄKTA pure eliminates the need for programming skills to control the chromatography run, with the addition of simple drag-and-drop method templates in the UNICORN™ 6 control software. Through the software it is also possible to electronically track the use of, and data obtained from, individual columns, which is particularly useful as chromatography systems are often placed in shared facilities.
