Biotage has unveiled its Universal Phase Separators as an alternative to using the traditional glass funnel.
The Biotage Universal Phase Separation columns are fitted with a selectively permeable insert that separates aqueous phases from organic solvents under gravity.
According to the company, this solves the age old problem of how to remove an upper organic phase from a lower aqueous phase, during a traditional liquid-liquid extraction process, without creating additional process steps.
The unique design allows the organic phase to pass through the internal frit wherever it is located, providing a universal approach to separating two liquid phases while its one-size-fits-all approach enables any volume under 80 mL to be processed in one step, or larger volumes by serial batches.
Made from inert proprietary polymers, the Biotage Universal Phase Separators come in an easy-to-use kit form and refill packs, ready to use in seconds straight out of the box.
