ACHEMA 2018 review

ACHEMA is one of the leading trade shows for the process industry. KNAUER exhibited many products at the booth and discussed the user’s applications and solutions. KNAUER participated in the scientific program with a well attended presentation: Applications of simulated moving bed chromatography for continuous purification of small and large molecules. In addition, daily presentations of KNAUER solutions and customers interested in topics about HPLC, FPLC or SMB and OEM made the KNAUER booth a busy place. 

Simulated moving bed (SMB)

SMB was a featured topic, as the next level in purification capacity and efficiency are continuous chromatography solutions like the AZURA® SMB system. With its multi-column chromatography technology, it is possible to use the stationary phase of the separation columns much more efficiently than in batch chromatography. Due to the recycling principle of the process, an optimization of the desired product regarding both yield and purity is possible. The sample is less diluted than in batch chromatography and as a side-effect, up to 90% of the mobile phase can be saved. The AZURA SMB is a flexible system, applicable not just for simulated moving bed chromatography.
