Many well-known HPLC manufacturers (our OEM customers) rely on KNAUER pump technology for their own systems. The technical design of KNAUER's Smartline HPLC instruments has been optimized for the highest possible longevity of each component. Active piston seal wash, a standard feature in the Smartline Pump 1000, is a perfect example of this design philosophy. It not only provides peace of mind to chromatographers who work with concentrated buffers but also helps to decrease maintenance costs and extends the pump's lifespan as well.
Smartline HPLC pumps can also be easily upgraded at any time to form quaternary gradients, by adding a low pressure gradient module or by adding one or more pumps for high pressure gradients. All models are also available in a biocompatible version with titanium inlays.
