Sfär is the Swedish word for "sphere", and the name of our columns reflects the fact that we have made spherical silica a standard due to its higher surface area and higher loading capacity. Reliable and flexible, Biotage® Sfär columns deliver larger loading capacities, tighter elution bands and purer fractions than traditional flash columns.
Creating dried, adsorbed samples will improve the separation performance on any cartridge. Our Samplet® are designed for quick and convenient loading of concentrated samples. After the sample has been applied to the Samplet®, the solvent is allowed to evaporate. The Samplet is then inserted into the Biotage® Sfär Duo columns and you are ready to go.
TLC is a commonly used method development tool for flash purification. Product mixtures separated using TLC generally can be purified by flash chromatography using the identical solvent system.
