Types of Chromabolt® Prepacked Chromatography Columns

We offer two different prepacked column formats: Chromabolt®, the original format and Chromabolt® Basic columns that are less fully validated. Chromabolt® Basic columns are manufactured, packed and tested to the same high quality as the original Chromabolt® columns. The table below illustrates the slight difference between the two column types.

Learn about our Shipping Studies

Critical to providing robust prepacked chromatography columns is the assurance that the columns will maintain resin specifications during shipping. Our extensive testing has demonstrated that we maintain a consistent packed bed at all three column sizes no matter what the shipping environment Chromabolt® columns are subjected to. All three sizes of columns are tested for HETP, Asymmetry and flow pre and post shipping under the ISTA-1E testing protocol.

Ergonomics: Column Design

The Chromabolt® column was engineered and designed to make it:

  • intuitive to use
  • simple to wipe clean
  • easy for one person to transport

Each piece of the Chromabolt® column has been designed to safely and robustly purify drug products.

Time Savings: Column Economics

The advantages of fast turnaround time for Chromabolt® columns are demonstrated when comparing the hours required for setup and cleaning of traditional hardware columns as compared to prepacked columns.

Estimated time savings assuming packing of resin is successful on the first try.
