GE Healthcare has announced the second system in the AKTA liquid chromatography series to enable smooth development of scalable chromatographic processes for biopharmaceutical production.
With flow rates up to 150ml/min, the AKTA avant 150 is designed for process development and scale-up.
The Unicorn 6.1 control software enables method transfer between AKTA avant 25 and AKTA avant 150.
Unicorn 6.1 also comes with integrated Design of Experiments (DoE) functionality that provides time and cost savings by capturing the information required for decision making in fewer experiments.
AKTA avant includes several features for optimal operational security such as a cooled fraction collector and traceable column handling.
AKTA avant supports intelligent packing of Axichrom columns for predictable scale-up to production scale.
The verified, preprogrammed packing methods available ensure optimally packed beds and decrease operator dependence.
