Activated carbon is an adsorbent media used to remove colored compounds from solution. Using this media in the Biotage FLASH-AC cartridge as a packed bed improves adsorbent performance. Increasing the temperature of the solvent modifies adsorption and alters performance of the decolorization process. Elevated temperatures increase product solubility, therefore requiring less solvent than at room temperature. The increased concentration of product in a hot solution also simplifies crystallization.
Our carefully selected portfolio of industrial scale products have a proven track record of successful applications and use in scale-up projects. We can support the discovery, development and manufacturing of customer pharmaceutical and biotechnology products, from pre-clinical, phase I, II and III to small scale commercial operations.
