Biochromatography Offering for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing

For more than 25 years, we have been recognized as a leader in chromatography solutions. We design, manufacture, use and sell optimized preparative chromatography systems based on innovative and proven technologies for your biopharmaceutical purification applications. Our biochromatography solutions are available from lab to process scale.
We offer single units and complete systems including:

LP 1000

Shorter Time-to-Market
Our process expertise enables us to reduce upstream and downstream development times using advanced methodologies including, where applicable, proprietary computer modeling tools.

Regulatory Compliance
The biopharmaceutical industry cannot compromise when it comes to quality and patient safety. Our solutions comply with all regulatory and quality requirements. They ensure the highest quality and safety levels while optimizing purity and yield and also adhering to the FDA PAT (Process Analytical Technologies) guidelines.

Increased Production Capacities
Our downstream processing (DSP) solutions offer unique features that help develop the optimum bioprocess to match your upstream process performance. Our DSP solutions are ideally suited to all demanding purification steps such as capture, intermediate purification and polishing.

Range of Biochromatography Solutions

We offer a complete range of biochromatography solutions including columns, packing & unpacking stations and chromatography systems to match the requirements of your biochromatography step.
All our equipment has sanitary design and is fully compatible with GMP operations (includes FAT/SAT and a full documentation package). Our equipment complies with EC directives (DESP guidance) and conforms to ASME
code of construction.

Prochrom®-Bio Columns

Prochrom®-Bio columns are the result of Novasep’s experience in developing, supplying and operating cGMP processes using preparative and process-scale high performance and low pressure liquid chromatography columns. Prochrom®-Bio columns’ unique design includes a hydraulically actuated piston and specially designed packing/unpacking valves to provide consistent and optimum performance. The time required to pack and unpack Prochrom®-Bio columns is drastically reduced when using Novasep’s automated packing & unpacking station. This unique packing & unpacking station along with its specific procedure enable the fastest operation and the most reproducible results. Prochrom®-Bio columns’ performance is maximized when used in conjunction with our Prochrom® Hipersep-Bio chromatography systems.
