  • Application Area:For performing Chromatography

"AKTA (ÄKTA) avant - advanced protein separation / purification devised by GE Healthcare is very good system for purification of proteins and nucleic acid. I am impressed with its ability to perform three chromatography methods at once. I have used it for Molecular size exclusion followed by Ion-exchange followed by affinity or in reverse direction. I recommend it to be used for proteins and nucleic acid purification. "

  • Application Area:Antibody design

"It is very easy to use, compared to the previous model. Also, it comes with nice software, Unicorn 6 which is a true revolution. I would recommend this equipment for people who want to automate the purification process to treat a lot of samples in a row at different scales."

  • Application Area:Antibody Purification

"Having moved from separate stages of manual antibody purification to an AKTA rig has meant a huge amount of time saved with the potential to easily set up and leave the system. I Would recommend it, although it is complex to understand at first."
