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.

KNAUER will participate in a 4-year research programme entitled IMPRESS starting in September 2019. The aim of the project is to develop a production-chain to convert plant-based non-food resources into renewable chemicals.
KNAUER will develop several SMB processes and integrate them into the production flow of several industrial sugars and sugar alcohols.
This project has received funding under SPIRE programme under grant agreement No 869993. SPIRE, part of Horizon2020 is the European subsidy programme to facilitate a Sustainable Process Industry in Europe.
The five main tasks in this research project are:
An industrial wheat straw lignin was fractionated by a multistep process involving microfiltration followed by two membrane-assisted ultrafiltration steps starting from an aqueous solvent solution. The parent lignin and the different fractions were fully characterized in terms of chemical composition and physicochemical properties by gel permeation chromatography, gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, high-performance liquid chromatography, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry analysis, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Highly specific peptides that bind a given target protein are useful ligands for the affinity purification of such proteins from complex biological matrices. The capability to provide this kind of peptidic ligands for the affinity purification of virtually any protein can simplify and enhance the downstream process development. The general applicability, scalability, and comparatively low costs of peptidic ligands are key features for their application in downstream purification processes.
Together with the Beuth University of Applied Sciences, the Leuphana University Lüneburg and the GITTAmbH, KNAUER researches on the subject of "Media Literacy in Digitization". Together we design sustainable organizational and individual development processes. The requirements for future learning environments are defined. KNAUER develops an e-learning portal for employees and dealers, which is initially designed for service employees.
