UHPLC System for Bioseparations
Tue, 2013-03-19 14:28
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced its Thermo Scientific Dionex UltiMate 3000 Biocompatible Rapid Separation (BioRS) liquid chromatography system. This system is designed to combine the performance advantages of ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) with the corrosion resistant flow path demanded by the analysis of proteins, peptides, nucleic acids and biotherapeutics. Thermo Fisher will showcase the new system within booth 1835 during Pittcon 2013.
This system was designed to accelerate research into biotherapies, such as monoclonal antibody variants, and also to support biopharmaceutical research and QA/QC, including glycan analysis. This system is engineered to provide the high-peak capacity and sensitivity needed to analyze complex biomolecules.
The system was also developed for reliability and durability, even with harsh solvents used for many bioseparations. The flow path is built of corrosion-resistant materials, enhancing robustness and extending the life of biocolumns, even under high salt or extreme pH conditions. In addition, the materials used are designed to significantly reduce the risk of analytes interacting with internal surfaces of the flow path, protecting data quality. The system is powered by UltiMate 3000 Rapid Separation technology to support the high pressures required to separate many bioanalytes on high resolution UHPLC columns. The system is engineered to operate at pressures as high as 1,000 bar (15,000 psi) and flow rates up to 8 mL/min. This wide flow/pressure footprint supports many biomolecule characterizations, including development, identification and quality control. The tool-free biocompatible Thermo Scientific Dionex Viper fingertight fitting system is designed to facilitate connections without dead volume to combat peak-broadening effects.
The modular system offers many configuration options to accommodate most large molecule workflows. These include binary, quaternary and dual gradient mobile phase delivery, as well as parallel and tandem LC configurations.
