Downstream operation becomes very easy so it's worth having it.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Protein purification

"User can easily understand the hardware layout of Akta avant systems. It's easy to find if there is any issue in the system. It runs on unicorn, and unicorn software is very user friendly. It's very easy to give commands. From process layout, one can easily understand the process. Maintainance also minimal, you just need to calibrate the ph meter and 20% ethanol. From my prespective, value for money of this instrument also great as downstream operation became very easy."

Fantastic logical chromatography lab system for process optimization.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Chromatography resin screening & process condition optimization using statistical approach

"AKTA avant is a really amazing instrument to get more information in a truly hassle free manner with strictly adhered timelines. It is easy to programme in UNICORN & design experiments for screening & optimization purposes using a statistical approach. Reports generated are in brief, customizatbles & productive in terms of data as well as timeline and manpower. After sales support from installation to training & intermediate operational issues has been enthusiastic & precise. Maintenance of the instrument is timely & done following proper schedules. To make the most of this system and its high cost you need to be using all it's features."

  • 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. "
