This researcher sings a tune many will recognize from their own frustrations with overly complex chromatography instruments. The NGC™ chromatography system offers a simple, user-friendly interface so even students with little experience will beat the “learning curve blues.”
Chromatography instruments have a bad reputation in terms of their complexity and difficulty of use. In response, Bio-Rad’s designers and engineers challenged themselves to make the new NGC™ chromatography system as simple and intuitive-to-use as possible. Learn about the new easier-to-use instrument interface they created as a result.
Meet Janna and Tomas. After hearing competing claims about the scalability of next-generation chromatography systems, this dynamic duo took it upon themselves to discover the truth. Now let’s face it, when you think of protein purification you don’t usually think of good times. But somehow Janna and Tomas manage to keep the mood light even as they put the systems to the test by simulating changing protein purification needs. Their conclusion? Vote Yes for Better Chromatography. Vote Yes for Bio-Rad.
The Chromatography Chronicles Part 3: Adding, Swapping, and Scaling — Better Chromatography through Modular Design
What does it take to configure your own chromatography system? Part three of The Chromatography Chronicles examines how the NGC™ chromatography system adapts and grows to meet changing lab needs, and the modular design that makes this possible.
A day in the life of Maria, a post-graduate scientist. Both Maria and her PI are annoyed with their unreliable, out-dated protein purification system, and her PI asks Maria to buy them a new one. She struggles to find a system that meets all their needs until she remembers that Bio-Rad has a new next-generation chromatography system that will work for everyone!
Is spending hours in the coldroom just an inevitable part of doing chromatography? The engineers and designers at Bio-Rad believed that, with a little innovation, the answer could be “no.” Part two of The Chromatography Chronicles reveals how they freed the NGC™ medium-pressure chromatography system — and its users — from the coldroom’s chilly confines.

The Chromatography Chronicles Part 1: The Votes Are in — Customer Voices and the NGC Chromatography System Design Process
Whether through unreliability, lack of workflows, or poor design, chromatography systems can cause major hassles for any lab involved in purifying proteins. Would Bio-Rad be able to solve these longstanding problems? This new series takes an inside look at the development of the NGC medium-pressure chromatography system. This month: bringing customers into the design process.
The Fraser lab at University of California Davis tested Bio-Rad’s NGC system for the purification of ribosomal complex proteins in their studies of protein translation mechanisms. The NGC system enabled these researchers to significantly increase their protein purification throughput and save valuable time in the lab.
