HALO® BioClass Fused-Core columns for the separation of peptides, proteins and glycan

HALO® BioClass columns deliver a stable performance in a broad pH range, which allows 0.1% TFA/acetonitrile gradient as the first choice as a mobile phase at low pH for an outstanding separation of peptides, proteins and glycan. Furthermore, the high temperature stability up to 90 °C enables a much better separation of especially big proteins, which is especially interesting for scientists who may be using typical wide pore columns.

Profit until Tuesdsay 22.12.2015 from our special offer and receive a free 3-pack of HALO® BioClass guard columns with each order of one analytical HALO® BioClass Fused-Core column (2.1, 3.0, 4.6 mm ID).

Switzerland, the moated castle

Switzerland has roughly 3000 water-supply-sources, ensuring that we all have access to drinking water at any time.

Over one billion cubic meter of drinking water is provided, yearly. This corresponds with about 2 % of Switzerland's average rainfall.

Each day we use on average 400 l of drinking water per head.

The yearly cost of providing drinking water mounts to about 1.2 billion Swiss Francs.

Protecting the waters and securing the adequate supply with drinking water is extremely important.

40 ml screw vial pre-cleaned for TOC <10 ppb

Total organic carbon is a sum parameter which measures the concentration of organic substances in water. Low polluted waters have a TOC content of 1-2 mg/l. Highly polluted waters have a TOC content of over 10 mg/l.

Typically, vials pre-cleaned for TOC are used for trace-level TOC measurement, the validation of water installations or cleaning validations.

40 ml TOC vial, clear glass, complete with open-top screw cap with a welded 1.5 mm thick silicone/PTFE septum.

Further vial volumes and dimensions are available.

Currency correction factor

To the surprise of many, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) has recently lifted the cap on the Swiss Franc. While the import of products has become cheaper over night, products in stock that were bought while the cap was still intact as well as salaries, rent and so on have kept their price.

We have decided to grant our customers a currency correction factor of currently - 9 % on almost all products. We keep the right, however, to adjust this factor according to the Swiss Franc's development and without prior notice. The currently valid currency correction factor you will find published on the entry page of our website or in the archive.
