Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global leader in life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced the launch of EconoFit Low-Pressure Prepacked Chromatography Column Packs to support resin screening experiments in the development of protein purification workflows.
Bio-Rad’s range of EconoFit Columns provides a wide selection of resins in a prepacked format, allowing customers to simply screen resins and select the optimal chemistry for different target molecules. The new packs include mixed-mode, cation, and anion exchange resin columns, as well as a pack designed for His-tag protein purification. The convenient, easy-to-use and disposable column format is fully compatible with Bio-Rad’s NGC Chromatography Systems and other commonly used chromatography systems. Columns are available in 1 ml and 5 ml sizes.
“Similar resins can give different results for different target molecules, and with Bio-Rad’s EconoFit Column Packs our customers can easily perform resin scouting to identify the one which yields the best outcome for their chromatography application,” said Ertan Ozyamak, PhD, Bio-Rad Global Product Manager for lab-scale chromatography products. “Our columns deliver run-to-run uniformity to support preparative scale purifications and/or method development for new target proteins, as well as to improve existing workflows.”
