Gilson Announces The Release Of Silica-Free Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC) Columns
Middleton, WI (June 14, 2017) – Gilson, an industry leader in liquid handling, purification and extraction systems, today announces an extension to its PLC purification system offering by introducing centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) columns, available with a wide range of reusable, silica-free column possibilities. CPC columns coupled with a PLC Purification System offer improved yields and better cost efficiencies over flash chromatography and preparative HPLC techniques. The easily scalable systems are ideal for natural compound purification, natural extract fractionation, and general molecule purifications for cosmetics, food supplements, and pharmaceuticals.
Using Gilson’s CPC technology in the natural product purification process results in greater than 95% recoveries with 99% purity. The CPC columns are ideal for labs that are going green. They create less waste by being reusable, and provide cost savings by eliminating expensive column replacement and silica recycling. The technology also uses five times less solvent than preparative HPLC and flash chromatography.
The silica-free CPC columns offer large injection capacity, from milligrams to multi-kilograms depending on the size of CPC column. Gilson purification systems provide preparative- to industrial-scale purification of highly complex samples without sample pretreatment.
To streamline workflows, this Gilson purification system can be completely controlled through Gilson Glider software. As chromatographic columns, the Gilson CPC can connect to any preparative liquid chromatography system.
Gilson offers complete purification solutions. Now with the combination of Gilson’s CPC column with the PLC Purification Systems, researchers have the flexibility to easily use either CPC, flash, or preparative HPLC columns as needed.
