Liquid Chromatograph for Protein Separation (FPLC-type)

GE HEALTHCARE LIFE SCIENCES AKTA Prime Plus

This is a moderate-pressure (aprox. 10 bars) liquid chromatography system. It is a "Fast Protein Liquid Chromatography" (FPLC) type system as originally developed by Pharmacia (now part of GE). It has a "bio-compatible" flow path, meaning that it can be used with biological buffers.  

  • The main use of FPLC type systems is protein purification
  • Users must supply their own columns and solvents
