KNAUER offers a wide range of services to help you.

KNAUER- At your service

Application development

Do you plan to separate substances by HPLC in order to qualify, quantify or even purify without spending too much time in developing a suitable method? We offer an application and method development service and supports you to select a suitable system four your lab. According to your specifications we prepare an efficient HPLC or FPLC method including advice for an appropriate sample preparation.
To ensure transparency about the project status, the project is split into several phases. After each phase we jointly discuss the current situation and detailed progress. You will finally receive the optimum result with full agreement on both sides. We offer

1. Proof of Concept:
Send us your standards, and we recommend the most suitable LC system and an appropriate column and the optimum method parameters.
2. All in One Solution:
With your analytes and sample matrix, we provide a feasibility study, a recommended sample preparation, the complete analytical method and data evaluation.
If you or your customer intend to send us samples please take into account that the so called Sample screening data sheet needs to be entirely filled in and placed on top of the package. This is due to handling and safety reasons. Download here the sample screening data sheet.

Method transfer and optimization

Do you intend to perform your analyses faster, more efficient and cost effective? We are happy to support you with its profound expertise and experience in liquid chromatography. The team assists in transferring LC applications and methods.

1. Method Transfer

We investigate the transfer of your method to one of our HPLC systems. Especially complex separations can cause trouble when transferring them to a different system. We ensure continuous and consistent quality after the transfer.

2. Method Optimization

Using ultra-pure solvents in HPLC can increase the expenses of an analysis substantially. A shift from classic HPLC columns to smaller inner diameters and smaller particle size could cut costs enormously since considerably less solvent is required. We optimize and transfer your LC analyses in order to obtain identical, or even better and faster results, reduce eluent consumption and operating costs. 

Applications & Academy

KNAUER Academy


Scientific research generates new results and knowledge for industry and society. Currently, KNAUER is involved in different research projects. Obviously, we mostly focus on activities where we can efficiently contribute with our expertise  in HPLC technology.
With our  research commitments, we intend to generate new knowledge in the field of chromatography as well as learn even more about our own products.

Examples of current research projects

Rent an expert

Some of the numerous chromatographic challenges are better solved in your own lab with your own HPLC equipment. Just order a specialist for your assistance in your lab. In order to develop the best procedure for your HPLC/FPLC or even purification challenge, we will together develop a concept with you in advance.  

Software development

Many of today's devices rely on some kind of software to run and interact with you, either internal software (firmware) or drivers and application software on your PC.

Development of firmware for HPLC devices like UHPLC and HPLC pumps, UV, PDA, RI, LS, and FL detectors, Autosamplers, Valves, Column ovens, Fraction collectors.

Development of device drivers for OpenLAB, ChromGate (EZChrom based), Chromeleon, Xcalibur, Analyst, HyStar, ClarityChrom (Clarity based).

Automation of measurement and operation process.

Validation of chromatographic software and firmware.

KNAUER software support: firmware, drivers, and software solutions

To provide the most useful tools for your daily work, our team of software engineers combines its expertise in developing firmware, instrument control drivers, as well as application software. KNAUER also has a long experience in customizing instrument operation and in developing drivers for various OEM customers.
