Uppsala, Sweden, November 15, 2012 / B3C newswire / - Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, introduced their new Universal Phase Separators, a flexible alternative to the traditional glass funnel separation of immiscible liquids. The Biotage Universal Phase Separation columns are fitted with a selectively permeable insert that separates aqueous phases from organic solvents under gravity; solving the age old problem of how to remove an upper organic phase from a lower aqueous phase, during a traditional liquid-liquid extraction process, without creating additional process steps.
The unique design allows the organic phase to pass through the internal frit wherever it is located, providing a universal approach to separating two liquid phases while its one-size-fits-all approach enables any volume under 80 mL to be processed in one step, or larger volumes by serial batches. Made from inert proprietary polymers, the Biotage Universal Phase Separators come in an easy-to-use kit form and refill packs, ready to use in seconds straight out of the box.
"Biotage Universal Phase Separators are the modern day alternative to separating with the glass separating funnel. Ideal for working with a range of organic solvents, or in parallel this product is economical, flexible and extremely simple to use. There are no moving parts, with nothing to prime, it's all achieved by fundamental physical principles and clever product design." says Dr. Sunil Rana, Product Manager Chemistry Applications and Resins and Work-Up Products at Biotage.
