GE’s New Protein Purification System: ÄKTA pure

Chalfont St Giles, UK – 24 August 2012 – GE Healthcare, the healthcare business of GE (NYSE: GE) announced today the launch of ÄKTA™ pure, a chromatography system for flexible, reliable and intuitive purification of proteins. ÄKTA pure, the latest addition to the industry-leading ÄKTA range of chromatography systems, is an easy-to-use modular system that offers the flexibility to support both routine and challenging purification requirements, as well as being adaptable to changing research needs.

Johan von Heijne, Head of Research Products, GE Healthcare Life Sciences, said, “In an increasingly challenging research environment, where needs and priorities can change rapidly, researchers want to know that the protein purification system they purchase has longevity. By taking a modular approach with ÄKTA pure, we are providing a system that not only simplifies researchers’ work but also gives them a flexible option for expanding and tailoring their purification capabilities as their research progresses. There is simply an ÄKTA pure for everyone.”

In today’s research environment, scientists are often expected to undertake all aspects of the protein discovery workflow, from genomics through to purification and characterisation, and the requirement to isolate specific proteins at high purity in short timelines often means that chromatography conditions and methodologies have become more challenging. ÄKTA pure is specifically designed to enable researchers – from beginners to experts – to easily isolate their target protein, whether under simple or complex conditions.

ÄKTA pure eliminates the need for programming skills to control the chromatography run, with the addition of simple drag-and-drop method templates in the UNICORN™ 6 control software. Through the software it is also possible to electronically track the use of, and data obtained from, individual columns, which is particularly useful as chromatography systems are often placed in shared facilities.

GE Healthcare is releasing its new ÄKTA pure chromatography system for protein purification. The company promises that the system can purify any protein or biomolecule that a study requires.

The device was designed for ease of use with software that doesn’t require programming skills, but rather relies on a drag and drop interface. The modular design allows different pumps and valves and other hardware to be integrated as needed.

This week in Munich, Germany, some of the world’s top cardiologists are gathering for the 60th annual European Society of Cardiology conference. One of the new GE ultrasound systems being showcased for the first time at the congress is the Vivid E9 BT 12 with 4D TEE probe. Hear below what Dr. Luigi Badano from Italy and Professor Reidar Winter from Sweden have to say about their experiences with the new GE cardiovascular ultrasound system and the impact it is having on the care they provide to patients.
