High Throughput Screening of separation materials and method optimisation. Columns in 96 array format for parallel chromatography, also used in robotic liquid handling stations.
Small open columns with separation media in a 96-well plate format.
Sizes from 50 – 200µl available.
Three different MiniColumn versions available, dedicated for liquid flow by:
Centrifuge => CentriColumn®
Positive displacement pipette => PipetColumn®
Robotic fluid handling equipment => RoboColumn®
When ordering, please specify the version you need.
This high throughput (real parallel chromatography) screening tool is an array of individual small columns installed on a base plate conforming to the standard 96 well microplate format.
Columns are prepacked with commercially available resin media according to the needs of the user. Units may be sealed with a flexible capping mat at both ends for storage and reuse. Material from MiniColumn arrays can be collected in any standard 96 well plate. MiniColumns may be operated either by centrifuge or by robotic fluid handling equipment.
MediaScout is the technology that allows our products to be customised to the specific needs of our clients, providing a choice of a predefined or a customised set of commercially available process separation resins prepacked into ready-to-use MiniColumns.
Standardised chromatographic tests provides efficiency data of different resins so they may be checked side by side in the shortest time frame possible.
• The CentriColumn has a reservoir on top of the resin bed to hold the analytes before the liquid is moved through the resin. The outlet is a male luer conus. The centrifuge version assures a synchronous pass of liquid through all 96 columns into a standard 96 or deep well plate. For applications with a large number of samples to be processed and in case a fixed tip liquid handling station is not available.
• The PipetColumn version has an inlet piece that fits most tips of pld-pipettes (Brand, Eppendorf, Gilson, etc.). From the inlet a capillary leads to the resin top and a capillary outlet on the bottom ensures a liquid flow like in an LC system. The liquid flow is controlled by the pipette, either manually or by a motorised version into a 96 deep well plate. For applications that need flow control and in case a fixed tip liquid handling station is not available and for experiencing the first steps into the MiniColumn system. For that reason we offer a Starterkit.
• The RoboColumn version has an inlet piece that fits to fixed tips of TECAN’s (and some others) robotic liquid handling stations. From the inlet a capillary leads to the resin top and a capillary outlet on the bottom ensures a liquid flow like in an HPLC system. The flow is controlled by the TECAN station into a 96 deep well plate. For fully automated applications with high sample throughput and accurate control of flow rate and volumes.
