Universal Phase Separators
Biotage has introduced their Universal Phase Separators, an alternative to traditional glass funnel separation of immiscible liquids. The Universal Phase Separation columns are fitted with a selectively permeable insert that separates aqueous phases from organic solvents under gravity; solving the age-old problem of how to remove an upper organic phase from a lower aqueous phase, during a traditional liquid-liquid extraction process, without creating additional process steps.
The columns design allows the organic phase to pass through the internal frit wherever it is located, providing a universal approach to separating two liquid phases while its one-size-fits-all approach enables any volume under 80 mL to be processed in one step, or larger volumes by serial batches. Made from inert polymers, the Biotage Universal Phase Separators come in an easy-to-use kit form and refill packs.
