ÄKTA PureNC

Non-Credit Certificate

What is ÄKTA Pure?

ÄKTA pure is an easily customizable liquid chromatography system designed for protein purification. The UNICORN software comes with a library containing a wide variety of column parameters and predefined method templates to increase productivity and efficiency. High pressure and air bubble sensors are incorporated in the system to allow unattended runs. A programmable email feature is available to notify operators when an alarm is triggered.

Courses/programs listed with “NC” are non-credit courses/programs.
