Description

AKTApurifier UPC
AKTApurifier UPC
  • AKTApurifier is an automated liquid chromatography system.
  • This is the UPC model which is accompanied by the UPC-900 for combined measurement of UV absorption, pH, and conductivity.
  • This features flow rates up to:

AKTApurifier 100 (P-901): 100 ml/min at pressures up to 10 MPa.

AKTApurifier 10 (P-903): 10 ml/min at pressures up to 25 MPa.

  • This has a compact separation unit. UNICORN control system version 5.10 is the computer running system which includes:

(1) a fraction collector

(2) a monitor for pH and conductivity measurement

Purpose of Use

  • This is used for rapid purification of proteins at low to medium pressures.
  • The system works by passing the sample through different flowpaths with specific affinities for the constituents in the sample.

Location

  • Beeghly 207
  • American University, Washington, DC
  • access to the laboratory is restricted; please contact Dr. Miller, Dr. Hartings or Dr. Fox for access.

Contact

For further details and use of the instrument please contact the following faculty:
