Chromatography is a versatile family of analytical techniques that separate and purify specific components within a mixture. It finds application in various fields such as chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, food testing, and forensic science.
The fundamental principle of chromatography involves dissolving the mixture in a fluid known as the mobile phase. The mobile phase is then passed through a stationary phase, a substance that remains fixed inside a chromatography column. The stationary phase acts as a constraint, physically separating the mixture as it interacts differently with the components. A classic example is paper chromatography, where water is used as the mobile phase to separate ink components as it moves along the paper.
Chromatography systems have evolved significantly, offering various techniques and customization options. Today, chromatography systems can be integrated with analyzers such as mass spectrometers, enhancing the power and effectiveness of analytical workflows.
Using chromatography techniques, coupled with advanced systems, allows researchers and scientists to achieve high-resolution separations, accurate identification of components, and purification of target substances. It has become indispensable in quality control, research and development, drug discovery, environmental analysis, and forensic investigations.
Chromatography continues to contribute to scientific discoveries and technological advances with ongoing advancements. Its versatility, accuracy, and reliability make it an essential technique in the ever-expanding world of analytical sciences.
The cost of purchasing chromatography systems can be a significant challenge for biotech and life sciences companies. They often come with a substantial price tag, making them capital-intensive investments. The upfront cost of buying chromatography systems can strain budgets, particularly for startups and organizations with limited financial resources.
However, alternative solutions such as leasing can alleviate the financial burden and offer more flexibility. By using Excedr's leasing program, companies can overcome the high cost of ownership and gain access to the necessary chromatography systems without compromising their budget or hindering their research and development efforts.
