Product News: Phenomenex Expands Aeris® PEPTIDE Core-Shell Column Line to Include a 5 µm Particle Size for Small-Scale Purifications

18 Sep 2014

Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces the addition of a 5 µm particle size to its family of Aeris PEPTIDE core-shell columns, enabling higher efficiencies and higher loading capability for small-scale peptide purification in 10 mm ID semi-prep columns and 21.2 mm ID Axia™-packed prep columns. Aeris PEPTIDE is fully scalable over four particle sizes – 1.7 µm, 2.6 µm, 3.6 µm, and 5 µm – enabling easy method transfer from analytical HPLC and UHPLC to preparative applications. Aeris PEPTIDE is ideal for biomolecule separations in pharmaceutical and life science applications.

The Phenomenex Axia preparative format delivers longer column lifetime, higher efficiencies, improved performance and high reproducibility, compared to conventionally packed columns for lab-scale preparative chromatography.

“We are continually expanding our core-shell products to provide our customers with seamless scalability providing the same selectivity and retention over the range of particle sizes,” comments Michael Klein, brand manager for Phenomenex. “Aeris is the leading choice for the separation of biomolecules and we now offer the largest number of formats of any core-shell product engineered for biomolecules on the market.”

Phenomenex is a global technology leader committed to developing novel analytical chemistry solutions that solve the separation and purification challenges of researchers in industrial, clinical research, government and academic laboratories. From drug discovery and pharmaceutical development to food safety and environmental analysis, Phenomenex chromatography solutions accelerate science and help researchers improve global health and well-being
