Connectivity and Compatibility of Kronlab laboratory glass columns

Sometimes one does not see the woods from the trees – or in other words: for some people it is evident, but not so for the others. With regards to Kronlab glass columns there are two questions still frequently asked:

Question 1:

What resins may I use in combination with Kronlab glass columns?


In principle, the columns are compatible with any material of any given producer. The only points to
keep in mind are application specific considerations like those concerning compatibility to the materials of
the wetted parts and the pressure limits of columns and packing materials. To accommodate these
Kronlab offers a wide range of columns with different materials and stabilities. YMC’s application laboratory
has a long list of applications covering the areas: ion exchange (IEX), size exclusion chromatography (SEC),
normal/reversed phase, affinity chromatography, etc.
using media of YMC, GE, Pall, BioRad, Tosoh to name only a few references.

Question 2:

Is it possible to connect Kronlab-glass-columns to every LC-equipment or am I limited to Kronlab equipment?


Naturally we are happy to see Kronlab-glass-columns being used together with Kronlab equipment, however limitations as to which equipment to use do not exist. The Kronlab laboratory scale glass columns are shipped with a set of connectors to connect to LC-systems of any major supplier (e.g. GE Äkta). Additionally we offer all kinds of special accessories. One example are the yellow connectors shown in the pictures, which make it possible to change from metric to inch connections (i.e. M6 to ¼-28).
