High Throughput Assays with incubation: Cytomat 2c 450, 42 standard microtiter plates (4 – 70 C)

Florescence reader: BioTek Synergy H1 with monochromator UV-Vis absorbance and luminescence detection and injection module coupled via Rackrunner for transport

Chemical Characterization

Separation / purification by analytical HPLC system:
Agilent 1200 with Diode Array Detector ( DAD ) and fraction collector (fraction volumes between 300 ul to 5mL)

Purification with preparative HPLC system:
Agilent 1260 Infinity Diode Array Detector ( DAD ) and fraction collector (fraction volumes either 14ml or 50mL) and auxiliary valve for collection of up to 5 user-selected fractions

Powerful and universal detector:
Corona Charged Aerosol Detector Veo RS (CAD), evaporation temperature can be set between 5-100 ° C in order to increase sensitivity. This can be coupled to the analytical and preparative HPLC system.
