The combination of a broad range of sorbents and the large choice of cartridge sizes provides a separation solution for just about any purification requirement. Sepacore® flash cartridges range from 4g up to 330g in size, and are available with the choice of Silica (normal-phase) , C18 (reversed-phase), Amine, Cyano, Diol and SCX-2 cation exchange packing materials. And for the more difficult separations, the available Silica HP cartridges provide smaller particles with higher resolution capabilities. For larger-scale purifications 750g and 1500g cartridges are available with both Silica and C18 sorbent materials.
The high quality Silica packing material used in the new Sepacore® cartridges is specially selected to provide efficient and reproducible separations. Its narrow particle size distribution, low metal ion content, neutral pH, and controlled water content enable the overall purification process to be performed faster and at a lower cost than most conventional cartridges.
While these new Sepacore® cartridges work equally well on all flash chromatography instruments, their full advantage is most conveniently realized when used together with the BUCHI Sepacore® flash chromatography system. This system provides optimal scale-up capability with a maximal flow rate of 250mL/min. It enables high resolution separations even at the highest flow rates with a working pressure up to 50bars (725psi).
Comprised of the new pre-packed cartridges, modular instrumentation systems, glass column, and the unique Cartridger ® self-packing device, the Sepacore® range from BUCHI represents a complete solution for flash chromatography.
