BioAscent invests in enhancing automated chromatography capabilities with two preparative HPLC systems from Teledyne ISCO


​​​​​​BioAscent Discovery, a leading provider of integrated drug discovery services, has invested in two new Teledyne ISCO ACCQPrep® HP150 preparative HPLC instruments. The HPLC sy​stems are linked to Purlon mass spectrometers and 2x2 AutoSampler modules, enabling automated mass directed purification of both final compounds and late-stage intermediates.


As BioAscent continues to grow, the ACCQPrep HP150 systems enhance existing preparative HPLC capabilities, enabling the chemistry team to deliver target molecules more rapidly and efficiently and to the high levels of purity that BioAscent clients expect.


CQPrep HP150 systems, which were fully installed in January, are already being used on various BioAscent projects by our chemists, who have extensive experience in HPLC purification. We continue to invest in the best technology, and having this additional capacity adds value to the services we can offer to our customers."


Josh Lovell, Product Line Manager (Pharma R&D Products) at Teledyne ISCO, said that since ince its release six years ago, the ACCQPrep HP150 has become a go-to choice for chemists across the world, with it's reputation to deliver purification results with reliability and ease-of-use.


“Teledyne ISCO values the trust that BioAscent places in us and our instruments to achieve the purification needs their clients demand," Lovell said. “BioAscent is the first CRO in the UK with multiple ACCQPrep HP150 preparative HPLC instruments able to perform mass-directed purifications. As BioAscent's success continues, we are excited to continue to meet their growing flash and preparative HPLC needs."


The investment in this state-of-the-art equipment is part of a wider strategy to grow the chemistry groups automated purification capabilities and has seen an increase in flash chromatography capabilities through the purchase of two new Teledyne ISCO CombiFlash NextGen 300+ systems and two new GeneVac EZ-2 Elite benchtop evaporators.
