Akta better watch their back.
Application Area: Protein Purification and Analysis
"When it comes to FPLC, I was always an Akta guy but this instrument changed my mind. The NGC is extremely well designed, the software is better that Unicorn (and it's free to install on other computers for analyses), and it's significantly more affordable. I wouldn't have believed it if we hadn't demoed the machine ourselves first but I 100% recommend these instruments."

Brilliant bit of kit that doesn't fail on large scale purification.
Application Area: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 FPLC itself is very user-friendly.
Application Area:FPLC to purify proteins from size exclusion
"Definitely cost-effective. User interface is also very straightforward, but peripheral devices (fraction collector and Teledyne autosampler) connection is not stable. Representatives from both Teledyne CETAC and Bio-Rad are not knowledgeable about autosampler connection."

A versatile piece of equipment and we can adapt many different detectors
Application Area:Pesticides analysis with GC system.
"NGC QUEST is an easy platform for analysis of organic compounds. We are working on volatile organic compounds dissolved in water matrices, pesticide analysis on water matrix. It´s a versatile piece of equipment and we can adapt many different detectors, in fact we are developing methods for UV and IR detectors. It´s a reliable piece of equipment with a long Dynamic Range and Low LOD´s. "

NEW FEATURE | Multidimensional (Multi-D) Chromatography with NGC Systems
Automate Your Multi-Column Protein Purification Workflow with NGC™ Multi-D Chromatography. Multi-D chromatography is a feature of the NGC Systems that automates multistep purifications using complementary strategies to isolate your product of interest at high yields and purity levels run after run.
Compared to traditional sequential chromatography workflows, which require running single columns sequentially, Multi-D sets up an automated workflow and consolidates day-long methods to hour-long protocols without requiring the intervention of users, allowing them to save valuable time.
