Liquid chromatography instruments and solutions!

Since 1962, Knauer have been developing, manufacturing, and distributing laboratory instruments around the world. With more than 120 employees we are the oldest German manufacturer of instruments for HPLC, FPLC, simulated moving bed chromatography (SMB) and osmometry. Their product portfolio ranges from most compact analytical HPLC systems to SMB systems for the extraction of up to 1.000 kg of pure substance per year.

Products and services offered include state of the art HPLC/ UHPLC systems, FPLC systems, solutions for the purification of value products and fine chemicals, LC columns, and method development.

Azura Systems

Analytical HPLC / UHPLC Systems

Efficient and adaptable – with ULDC option

KNAUER AZURA® liquid chromatography instruments are designed to support and facilitate your work. Whether doing routine analysis or demanding separation tasks, AZURA systems are the right tool to overcome your analytical challenges. Choose between different gradient forming technologies and maximum flow rates to find the best configuration for your task. A large variety of detectors is available.

Preparative LC Systems

Customized purification

AZURA preparative systems are the perfect solution for frequently changing separation tasks – from milligram to kilogram scale. These prep HPLC systems combine flexibility and reliability. The systems can be configured freely choosing different materials, flow rates, valves, and detectors. Due to the flexible design of the devices, parts like pump heads or flow cells can be easily exchanged. All components of the compact system e.g. can be integrated into the pilot-scale system.

FPLC Systems

The flexible FPLC platform for protein purification

The AZURA FPLC with its biocompatible/metal-free components is the perfect choice for any protein purification task. Multiple functionalities such as automatic sample injection via autosampler, column switching, buffer and sample selection, as well as fraction collection enable the user to automate purification processes. A large range of different detectors make your target molecules visible. Different flow rates and compatibility to columns from all vendors offer maximum flexibility.

GPC / SEC Systems

Upgradeable modular concept with a large range of detectors

AZURA® SEC is KNAUER’s line of GPC and SEC systems that offer solutions for different applications and labs. These systems can analyze, separate and fractionate sample components based on size and molecular weight, making them useful for industries such as polymer, food, biochemistry, and pharmaceuticals, as well as research.

The systems come in different variants, each tailored to specific lab needs, such as the AZURA SEC Compact for budget-friendly solutions or the AZURA SEC Lab for highest analytical performance.

SMB (Simulated moving bed) Systems.

Continuous separation for higher productivity and purity

Simulated moving bed chromatography is increasingly applied as a separation technique in the pharmaceutical industry, production of fine chemicals and in the field of bioengineering. SMB is a method in process chromatography that enables substance mixtures to be continuously separated and extracted in two fractions. By repeated use of the SMB process each partial fraction can be separated into a further fraction – down to binary substance mixtures. It´s efficiency is significantly higher than batch chromatography, through better utilization of the column stationary phase.

Sample Preparation Systems

Manual sample preparation takes time and occupies your specialist staff. These systems are especially designed for automated sample preparation.
