The ÄKTA pilot 600 from GE Healthcare is a lightweight bench-top chromatography system suited to streamline both GMP and non-GMP everyday operations. The instrument’s modular design allows for functionality to be added or removed as user requirements change. The flow and pressure range support both production of technical batches and scale-up studies as well as small-scale production of GMP-grade material. The interactive process picture enables changes to be made in real-time, and deviations are quickly identified. The accuracy and range of the pumps facilitates precise gradient formation that supports a column sizes range of 26 to 200 mm i.d.
The system works with the company’s AxiChrom chromatography columns through the intelligent packing function and the packing port. Prepacked 1- and 2.5-L ReadyToProcess columns can also be used with the system. The compact design allows for easy movement and placement on a lab bench or a ReadyKart mobile station, with all functional parts placed on one side of the instrument for convenient access.
