Automated Multidimensional (Multi-D) Chromatography

Save Days by Automating Multistep Purifications

Protein purification often requires multiple column steps, which can be time-consuming and require constant supervision. Multi-D chromatography is a feature of the NGC System that automates multistep purifications using complementary strategies to isolate your product of interest at high yields and purity levels run after run. Compared to traditional sequential chromatography workflows, which require running single columns sequentially, Multi-D chromatography sets up an automated workflow and consolidates day-long methods into hour-long protocols without requiring user intervention, allowing you to save valuable time.

Bioprocess Production Resins

The Direct Path to Successful Process Separations

Bio-Rad manufactures a wide range of chromatography resins for process separations, providing process developers with great flexibility and high productivity. Our leading chromatography resins for biomolecule purifications include best-in-class ion exchange resins and our innovative mixed-mode resins.

Mixed-Mode Resins

CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite and Nuvia Mixed-Mode Resins offer unique separation properties and unparalleled selectivity and resolution for a variety of molecules. They combine ion exchange and metal affinity or hydrophobic interactions to enable the separation of biomolecules that appear homogeneous using other methods. These resins can be used at any stage in a purification process.

Affinity Resins

Ready-to-use activated affinity media and IMAC and Protein A resins are available for affinity purification of biomolecules. Protein A resins can be used for different monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification needs. Nuvia IMAC Resin, a high-capacity next-generation metal chelate affinity resin, is designed with downstream purification requirements in mind. Its optimized particle size and high porosity allow operation at increasingly higher flow rates without compromising binding capacity.

Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography and Size Exclusion Chromatography Resins

Hydrophobic resins provide high mechanical strength and low backpressure for bioprocessing applications. They are ideal for protein, polypeptide, enzyme, and nucleic acid purification. These resins are designed specifically for intermediate purification steps to remove host-cell contaminants from partially purified targets. Due to the rigidity and unique surface chemistry of these resins, they are well-suited for HIC operations requiring high throughput and high recovery of the target.

Our size exclusion resins are engineered for gentle, high-resolution separation of sensitive compounds in aqueous or organic solutions. The size exclusion resins and polyacrylamide beads are available in various mesh sizes to accommodate a wide range of applications.
