Uppsala, Sweden (November 11, 2014) — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, announces the launch of Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 – a range of high performance, reversed phase flash purification cartridges and samplets.

Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 reversed phase cartridges are optimized for use with Biotage ACI™ and Isolera™ flash systems and are available in 12 g, 30 g, 60 g, 120 g, 400 g, 950 g and 1850 g cartridge sizes. They enable chemists to confidently load 2-3% weight percentage of samples onto reversed phase columns, a marked improvement when compared to the currently typical 0.5 – 1% loads. The time taken for purification and solvent usage can therefore be reduced by 50% or a smaller cartridge can be used for the same purification, often with improved purification results.

The new reversed phase cartridges are packed with the new, Biotage® HP-Sphere C18 25 micron spherical silica particles that give a boost to resolution with higher purity peaks over standard reversed phase cartridges. The silica is chemically neutral with no adverse interactions, ensuring higher yields and better recoveries; a wide diversity of purifications are possible, including the use of both acidic or basic modifiers.

“It is no longer enough for suppliers to arbitrarily work on single aspects of the workflow and purification – today a more holistic approach is required, one that involves a combination of factors; with this product range we have further augmented the Biotage ACI™ and Isolera™ flash systems and have created a superior product for purification” says Dr. Sunil Rana, Global Product Manager, Biotage.

Biotage Launches ACI™ – Accelerated Chromatographic Isolation

Biotage announces the launch of ACI™ (Accelerated Chromatographic Isolation), a new advance converting simple flash purification into a faster and more economical way to isolate pure compounds.

Uppsala, Sweden (July 10, 2014) — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, announces the launch of ACI™ (Accelerated Chromatographic Isolation), a new advance converting simple flash purification into a faster and more economical way to isolate pure compounds.

Biotage believes that ACI™ will radically improve the efficiency of the laboratory, embracing the latest developments in purification technology to guide chemists towards improved chromatography. With running costs a concern in most laboratories, ACI™ will efficiently move users to the end-point even faster. Traditional purification taking more than 15 minutes is reduced to 5 minutes; a 250 mg scale laboratory scale experiment can now be purified in less than 3 minutes on a 10 g column with an ACI™ enabled Biotage Isolera™ flash purification system.

“This is a very exciting and pivotal development, the speed enhancements are akin to the impact felt when microwaves first hit the scene. There is nothing out there that comes close to this system. Chemists will now have freedom to work on other things while they let their ACI™ system do the purification. It is fully automated, reliable and lightning fast, we can completely purify 250 mg of sample in less than 3 minutes, this is quicker than most people take to run the TLC” says Dr Sunil Rana, Global Product Manager, Biotage.

Biotage Isolera™ systems already recommend cartridges based on the sample size and programmed TLC data; they work out the best solvent gradient based on compound, and provide real time indication of eluting compounds, using UV, ELSD or Mass Detection. They subtract signal baselines automatically, so chemists can be confident that the correct fractions are collected.

ACI™ radically improves this, working seamlessly with the Biotage Isolera™ system, the simple wizard quickly guides chemists through the system, beneficial for new users or those whose expertise or priorities lie in synthesis rather than purification. Existing Biotage Isolera systems can be upgraded to ACI™ systems, and ACI™ will come as standard on all new production systems.
