Biotage releases new flash purification system

Biotage has released Biotage Selekt Enkel, a new addition to the Biotage family of flash purification systems. The Biotage Enkel is a dedicated, purification workhorse, with a modular design that facilitates application customization. It also utilizes the low solvent consumption workflow of the Biotage Selekt family, for greener operation and greater sustainability.

Maintaining the small footprint and compact design of the existing systems, the new Biotage Selekt Enkel is a reliable and robust instrument, designed to perform routine purifications in the drug discovery workflow with a reduced environmental impact. The system features one column lines and two solvent lines, enabling separations to be performed in either normal or reversed phases, using high-loading Biotage Sfär flash columns.

Biotage Selekt Enkel introduces a digitized approach to instrument design, with a novel modular construction. Laboratories can decide whether to add optional features, such as automated handling of purified sample collection racks or an extended collection bed, and thus tailor the system to suit their particular workflow. The instrument utilizes the user-friendly and intuitive interface of the Biotage Selekt family, making the instrument a powerful and efficient purification platform. The instrument can also be upgraded with the Biotage Spektra software package for additional functionality, leading to purer samples, reduced solvent use and more efficient operation.

“True to our strategy of providing chemists and scientists with scalable and sustainable solutions streamlining their workflows, the Biotage Selekt Enkel enables end-users to tailor a solution that suits their workflow, while simultaneously reducing the use of solvents. Building on the success of the Biotage Selekt system, this purification workhorse further improves our customers’ efficiency and user-experience as well as contributing to a reduced environmental footprint and greater sustainability for all. 

As ever, Biotage is helping make the world healthier, greener and cleaner,” said Tomas Blomquist, CEO Biotage.
