Adapting a traditional LC column usually requires a complete change in instrument or installation of a brand new column to accommodate a new compounds of interest. In the CPC technique, both the mobile and stationary phases are liquid solvents, meaning that CPC infrastructure can quickly be purged, cleaned and prepared for a new purification project. The iCPC system has almost no limits in adaptation: from small molecules to macromolecules or from extremely hydrophobic lipids to completely hydrophilic peptides.
Predictable and Fast Scale up
The CPC technique’s advantage is its scalability. Results achieved on the rCPC pilot scale platform are easily, predictably, and quickly scaled to RotaChrom’s Industrial Scale iCPC platform.
This predictability allows for the data generated through method development (including yield, purity, throughput, and productivity) to be used to predict industrial scale results for customers’, investors, or company partners. When coupled with market rates, the results of the rCPC instrument will also provide data necessary to accurately predict ROI and cash-flow generated by an industrial scale instrument.
With an iCPC instrument, scale up is a cost-effective and flexible process:
