ÄKTA avant is a preparative chromatography system designed for rapid and secure development of scalable chromatographic methods and processes. ÄKTA avant offers a complete solution for rapid, high-quality protein separations while maintaining flexibility and reliability.
ÄKTA avant is a preparative chromatography system intended for method and process development. Available in two versions, ÄKTA avant systems have different flow rates and pressure specifications but share
the same hardware setup. With flow rates up to 25 mL/min, ÄKTA avant 25 is designed for media screening and method optimization. ÄKTA avant 150, with flow rates up to 150 mL/min, is designed for scaling up to larger columns, as well as fine-tuning and robustness testing of the optimized process.. ÄKTA avant is operated by UNICORN 6 control software, which has been developed to increase productivity and efficiency. ÄKTA avant offers a complete solution for fast, high-quality protein separations while maintaining flexibility and reliability.
