On a scenic drive up the I-15 in southern California, I got to take a tour of the undergraduate lab at California State University, San Marcos with Dr. Robert Iafe. His lab is one of the first to have the new Biotage® Selekt Flash Purification System paired with the Sfär columns. We discussed the impact on his undergraduates broadening capabilities to learn about new instruments, and how it has affected his own research in his goals to gain tenure at the university.
"50% of my time as a Ph.D. was spend baby-sitting columns," stated Dr. László Kürti during our interview in February. Keep reading to find out more about how his team was able to increase their productivity by implementing Automated Flash Purification into their lab work.
Biotage® Sfär columns have been available since October 1st, 2018 and they are going to replace the Biotage® SNAP product line for flash purification.
From October 1st, 2018 Biotage® Sfär columns are available and they appear automatically on the Selekt instrument. Learn more about Selekt and Sfär.
If you run your Flash purification on Isolera® and you would like to start testing the new Sfär columns, there is an easy way of doing it. You can look at Bob doing it in the lab or just download and follow the instructions below.
