ÄKTA™ lab-scale protein purification systems are designed for purification of biomolecules, providing speed, performance, and flexibility in research and process development.
ÄKTA systems use intelligent UNICORN™ system control software to combine simplicity with power in protein purification from your lab bench today to process development and full-scale bioprocess production tomorrow.
With ÄKTA systems, backed by our columns and chromatography resins, you are taken reliably from lab bench to pilot and production scale.
Whatever your application and purification scale needs, we can help you change tomorrow today.
Flexibility in Research
Proteins are as different as you and me. When you need to purify them, one protocol does not fit all proteins. In research, you need to get the very best out of each sample. With such diversity, sometimes it might feel as if you are battling on several fronts. Relax, within the range of ÄKTA lab-scale systems there are alternatives focusing on flexibility, ease of use, and reliability to address whatever your research requires.
Productivity in Process Development
In today’s environment, you need to make sure the competitive advantage is on your side of the bench. Today’s challenges within biopharmaceutical process development include increasing cost pressures while overcoming even tougher regulatory requirements and demands for speed to market. These pressures do not diminish the fact that your primary goal is to achieve swift and secure handover of robust processes. ÄKTA avant is the icon of process development and optimized for chromatography media screening and method optimization using small columns as well as scaling up to larger columns for fine-tuning and robustness testing of the optimized process.
