"Machine itself is great. But I feel that it is a little bit overpriced (for the amount of applications that can be run on it). After service (service contract) is also expensive. Every time that machine is not working and we need to call service, the price tag is big. So, bottom line, ratio of money invested and revenue generated by that equipment is high. Another downside is that machine comes with Vendor software but in our lab we have to use Empower software and it is very hard to "marry" them together, although it is doable to some extent."

"Beckman CE provides valuable results for the protein characterization"
The PA 800 Plus Pharmaceutical Analysis System* was designed in collaboration with biopharmaceutical development and QC groups.
This platform provides analysts with robust and easy-to-use characterization, integrating quantitative, qualitative and automated solutions for protein purity, charge isoform distribution and glycan analysis. During the design of the PA 800 Plus, we emphasized assay portability, enhancing the overall system utility in multi-user, multi-instrument facilities.
