The Tips of Flash Column

empty flash column chromatography

Flash column chromatography is a fast and easy way to separate complex mixtures of compounds for the scientists in the lab. compressed air is used to push the solvent through the column when we running the flash columns. The process not only provides better separation but cuts down the running time too.

Even though flash column chromatography is not a new concept, but it is still the primary technique for purification in the lab, as it is fast, easy and convenient. The same physical principles which work on HPLC also apply flash chromatography with the ability to use either normal-phase or reverse-phase and using bonded phases to modify elution profiles. Due to these characteristics, flash chromatography can be used in the field of natural products purification.

Hawach always provides high purity stationary phased packed flash column in the full range of size for our costumers, with the column cartridge made from medical grade virgin PP material and PE frits, and the standard Luer-lock end fittings which can connect to most of the flash system easily.
