It is no accident that ÄKTA became one of the most widely used purification systems in the world. In 1982, protein purification underwent a productivity revolution with the introduction of FPLC, the predecessor of ÄKTA design systems. Today, in addition to liquid chromatography systems, there are now ÄKTA design systems for oligonucelotide synthesis and cross flow filtration (CFF).
ÄKTA is a Swedish word that means true, genuine, or real. From simple lab bench purifications to the complex challenges found in bioprocessing, ÄKTA has always meant outstanding protein purification. More than 100 000 users worldwide have found that ÄKTA remains true to its name, with the ability to purify virtually any biomolecule.
ÄKTA systems work with intelligent, scalable UNICORN software, which makes it simple to control at every stage of your purification. ÄKTA design together with GE Healthcare’s extensive range of columns, chromatography media, and filters give you speed, ease-of-use, and flexibility whatever your purification application or scale.
ÄKTAcrossflow for filtration and ÄKTA oligopilot plus for oligosynthesis are specialized ÄKTA systems designed for biopharmaceutical process development and research.
ÄKTA chromatography systems for production-scale offer exceptional flexibility in design to suit your process conditions and plant requirements.
ÄKTA lab-scale chromatography systems solve virtually any purification challenge.
UNICORN control software enables real-time control of ÄKTA design chromatography systems at basically any scale, from lab-scale and method development to full-scale production.
