Amersham Biosciences Introduces Tricorn High Performance Columns; Tricorn Columns Replace HR Columns as New Gold Standard for Protein Purification.

Business Editors/Health & Medical Writers



Amersham Biosciences, the life sciences business of Amersham plc (LSE:, NYSE:, OSE: AHM), has introduced Tricorn(TM) High Performance Columns designed for high resolution purification of proteins, peptides and other biomolecules.

The new Tricorn line replaces Amersham Biosciences' HR columns prepacked with media such as Superdex(TM) and MonoBeads(TM), long the gold standards for laboratory-scale protein separations.

The high resolution separation achievable with Tricorn columns make them ideal to get the final purity of a protein sample. This will enable scientists to isolate and purify individual proteins that may prove to be valuable new drug targets.

"The design of Tricorn provides simpler handling and direct connection to high performance systems such as AKTA(TM) design," says Allan Simpson, Vice-President Lab Separations Marketing at Amersham Biosciences. "Researchers in academia and the pharma and biotech industries will find that Tricorn columns are equal or superior to HR columns for performing high resolution, preparative liquid chromatography.

Tricorn columns are made of glass and PEEK and are available either empty or prepacked with a variety of chromatographic media, including Superdex for gel filtration, MonoBeads for ion exchange and chromatofocusing, and SOURCE(TM) for hydrophobic interaction and Ion Exchange.
