Recombinant protein purification

The NGC is a modular HPLC from Bio-Rad. We have 2 such systems in the institute. Recently our detection module bulb went just before an HPLC run. We were able to swap out a module from another machine and we had the machine up and running in 20 minutes. Contacting Bio-Rad, we were told what the fault could be and directed to a video on how to fix the problem – in our case a bulb change. We were also able to order the bulb which was promptly delivered. Changing was easy too. Although it is a learning curve to do your own maintenance, the useful videos and guides provided by Bio-Rad saves on the labor costs and time taken to arrange for a service engineer. Free software and firmware upgrades and multiple licenses make this machine truly flexible.

The NGC™ Scout 10 Plus Chromatography System is designed for medium throughput labs. It has automated 10 ml/min pumps that provide accurate gradients for high-resolution separations for any application. This instrument may be used for creating automated buffer gradients with buffer blending for rapid scouting and purification of proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids.

The NGC Scout 10 Plus System has a multi-wavelength detector with simultaneous four-wavelength monitoring for high-accuracy detection of proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids combined with conductivity measurements. The system also allows gradient separations at different pH values for rapid method development. Fractionated samples can be easily collected from analytical- to preparative-scale purifications using the NGC Fraction Collector and BioFrac™ Fraction Collector .
