The NGC Discover 10 System is designed for higher-throughput scale-up labs with automation and method development in mind. It has automated 10 ml/min pumps that provide accurate gradients for high-resolution separations for any application. This chromatography system may be used for method development, combining automated buffer blending with buffer inlets, a column switching valve, and a sample pump for expanded condition scouting options during the purification of proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids.

The system also allows gradient separations at flow rates up to 20 ml/min on large columns. The NGC Discover system has a multi-wavelength detector for the high-accuracy, simultaneous detection of proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids combined with conductivity monitoring. The NGC Discover 10 system allows automated buffer blending via the buffer blending valves and salt gradients via the buffer inlet valves. The blending valve also enables salt gradients at high flow rates up to 20 ml/min. The pH valve enables pH measurement and ensures full control of your conditions, while the sample pump enables automated unattended loading of multiple large sample volumes using the sample inlet valve on up to five columns connected to the column switching valve. The Discover Pro comes with a sample outlet valve. Fractionated samples can easily be collected using the NGC Fraction Collector , BioFrac™ Fraction Collector and outlet valve.
