Prof. Christoper Fraser and the scientists in his laboratory at the Dept. of Molecular and Cellular Biology at UC Davis study protein translation mechanisms by purifying diverse ribosomal proteins and reconstructing the translation complex in vitro. The lab utilized Bio-Rad's NGC liquid chromatography system to overcome specific purification difficulties with their proteins while beta-testing the equipment. The NGC system enabled the group to increase their throughput by 25% and also saved substantial training time.
Bio-Rad's NGC preparative chromatography system is designed to rapidly automate the purification of biomolecules. The flexible, modular, and economical design makes the NGC systems the instruments of choice for method development and scale-up. NGC systems are available in six preplumbed, factory-tested configurations with two different flow rates. Each preconfigured system can be further customized and upgraded by adding valves, detectors, or pumps to meet specific application needs. Any system can be configured for operation at either high or low flow rate by simply changing the pump head on the system pump module. With the NGC system, a single hardware platform can be modified as needed to suit changing applications and scales.
