CIMmultus® QA 400 mL Monolithic Column (2 μm)

CIMmultus® is a unique and industry-proven line of pre-packed chromatographic monolithic columns featuring large flow-through channels, designed for working with large biomolecules such as viruses (AAV, adenovirus, lentivirus, influenza, bacteriophages), nucleic acids (mRNA, pDNA), virus-like particles and exosomes. CIMmultus® columns can be used as single-use disposable or multi-use columns.

CIMmultus® Monoliths are reusable chromatography devices for scalable high-resolution purification of complex biological samples. Inside the custom designed housing is a single piece stationary phase with homogeneous channel size and surface chemistry. This stationary phase is designed to simplify method transfer from development into production.

Without the need for column packing, CIMmultus® Monoliths are ready for use out of the box.

This high-performance ion exchange column is primarily intended for fast and efficient purification of biomolecules such as large proteins, viruses and virus like particles through their ionic interaction with the monolith. The following information is being provided to ensure proper product care and optimal product performance.
