Give your students an introduction to automated protein purification, widely used in the industry today. ÄKTA start is an affordable, easy-to-use chromatography system. The design makes the system very useful for demonstrating chromatography.
Select column and resins based on application
The range of different column formats and resins can seem overwhelming. But we have the tools to guide you and your students. Use our resin selection guide for a structured approach to finding out which resin to use. We have also have column start guides that are based on specific applications.
You can shape tomorrow’s researchers today by providing them with skills essential for modern protein research labs. Here you will find useful resources to support you in teaching protein purification. Why not start with an overview of the fundamentals of key chromatography techniques?
Start from scratch
Need to start from the very beginning? Use these two presentations that describe the basics of proteins and protein purification, Introduction to proteins and Introduction to protein purification.
Share the fundamentals of different chromatography techniques easily. In our video hub you can access resources for visualizing the principles of affinity, hydrophobic interaction, size exclusion (gel filtration), and ion exchange chromatography.
Deeper chromatography insights
When you would like to go beyond the basics, we have a selection of handbooks to support you. They include information for how to design experiments and design purification schemes. The handbooks also provide insights into specific purification techniques.
Teach by using examples
A powerful way to teach how to master protein purification is to use application examples. Find inspiration for hands-on sessions in our application notes. They demonstrate several examples where different techniques and setups are used.
