A selection of fluid management components from GE Healthcare’s ReadyToProcess platform of disposable and single-use equipment was used to arrange buffer and sample management solutions for four typical large-scale
chromatography setups. These setups comprised different combinations of ReadyToProcess and AxiChrom™ columns and ÄKTA™ ready and ÄKTAprocess™ systems.
Ready-to-use plastic bags, plastic tubing, connectors and a mobile processing station provided flexible liquid-handling solutions that will simplify workloads and boost efficiency for all four configurations. The increasingly wide range of ‘plug-and-play’ bioprocessing components now available should thus find use in pilot and production facilities that utilize both disposable as well as fixed equipment.
