  • Planova™ S20N is the next generation regenerated cellulose virus filter that’s ready for any challenges. S20N promises “superior” filtration performance for various types of biotherapeutic products, “secure” robust virus removal capability, and “simplified” operation for your post-use integrity test. We endeavor to contribute to further improvement of operations and the greater safety of biologicals.

  • Streamline Your Media Preparation and Column Packing

    At Asahi Kasei Bioprocess, we understand the importance of efficient and reliable slurry preparation for successful purification processes. With that in mind, we have developed the SLURIPREP line of media management products to simplify your resin preparation and packing, specifically designed for DAC LC Columns. Our comprehensive range of accessories ensures that your column operation is seamless, efficient, and optimized for high productivity.

  • BioOptimal MF-SL is a hollow fiber microfilter that utilizes an efficient filtration mechanism based on size exclusion and tangential flow filtration. These two aspects allow the filter to smoothly and effectively separate the contents of a solution.

  • Proven design for mid-scale and large-scale solid phase oligosynthesis.

  • Our award-winning inline buffer formulation technology generates accurate and reproducible buffers on-demand from concentrates to save you time, space and money.

  • Proven design for mid-scale and large-scale solid phase oligosynthesis.

  • Conduct safe, efficient maintenance on large-scale stainless steel DAC LC Columns (≥ 60 cm i.d.).

    Designed for Flash, MPLC and HPLC columns up to 35 barg, the patent-pending DAC Ergo package features telescoping legs, hydraulics and a tethered control pendant so a single operator can remove the bottom plate assembly in under fifteen minutes.

  • Proven design for mid-scale and large-scale solid phase oligosynthesis.

  • Fast and reliable post-use integrity testing for Planova™ 15N, 20N and 35N filters.
