DescriptionÄKTAprime plus is a compact one-step lab-scale fast flow chromatography system that performs simple purifications of tagged and untagged proteins as well as antibodies. The system has pre-programmed methods for typical applications such as purification of affinity tagged proteins, monoclonal antibodies and sample clean-up. ÄKTAprime plus is a flexible system that can be used for more general purification tasks such as buffer exchange, gel filtration, ion exchange, hydrophobic interaction chromatography, and affinity chromatography. The purified proteins are usually used for biochemical analysis, structural biology and as immunogens, among other research technologies.
Components of the research infrastructureThe equipment includes a system pump, fraction collector, and monitors for UV and conductivity. Additionally is provided with several valves for buffer selection, sample injection, gradient formation, and flow diversion are also integrated into the system. The PrimeView® software available for the system offers continuous real-time monitoring and evaluation of results.
