"One of the best machines you can use for protein purification. Highly versatile for mixing buffer etc."
Gain efficiency in your process development
ÄKTA avant is a preparative protein purification chromatography system designed for fast and secure development of scalable methods and processes.
UNICORN protein purification software to free up your time
Create methods easily using predefined protocols for a wide range of chromatographic techniques. The integrated design of experiments (DoE) tool helps save time and increase process knowledge. And the UNICORN Column Logbook helps you keep track of column usage and performance.
High operational security
A high degree of automation supports operational security when the system is run unattended. The built-in fraction collector keeps your fractions securely cooled when the system is used outside working hours.
Screening and optimization
ÄKTA avant 25 is optimized for resin screening and method optimization using small HiTrap and HiScreen columns. The integrated BufferPro function as well as multiple sample and buffer inlets add automation possibilities for increased efficiency.
ÄKTA avant 150 is designed for scaling up to larger columns, such as HiScale and AxiChrom columns, as well as fine-tuning and robustness testing of the optimized process before moving on to the pilot scale. Intelligent Packing of the smallest AxiChrom columns, with 50 and 70 mm inner diameters, is supported via preprogrammed packing methods.
Accelerated process development with DoE
Using the integrated design of experiment (DoE) functionality of UNICORN software, the number of experiments required to obtain sufficient process information can be greatly reduced. The software allows you to set up your experimental design and automatically generate chromatography scouting runs to save time.
Quickly prepare your buffers in-line
BufferPro ready-made recipes deliver buffers of desired composition in-line for many pH and conductivity conditions for:
Use the quaternary valve to customize buffers for efficient and scalable buffer preparation.
