Flexible System Solutions | Configurable According to Requirements | Excellent Value for Money
Whether for routine analytics in quality assurance or sophisticated research analytics, KNAUER’s cleverly designed, user-friendly AZURA HPLC/UHPLC systems always give you powerful performance. This is what KNAUER customers have come to value over the past decades.
Flexible, modular system configurations
All AZURA HPLC/UHPLC systems are modular. Any system module can be substituted and new ones added to create the best configuration for your sample matrix:
- many different stainless steel and ceramic pumps,
- different flow rates and pressure levels,
- numerous detectors,
- and numerous columns.
Alternatively, we can create special solutions according to your requirements. This gives you the ideal configuration for your task.
High performance and precision
The AZURA systems work with autosamplers based on a sample aspiration volume of 0.1 μl and pressures of up to 1,240 bar. This allows you to analyse even small amounts of sample without loss.
The powerful pump heads enable flow rates of up to 10 ml/min at 700 bar or up to 2 ml/min at 1,000 bar. This allows you to use smaller columns and speed up your separation.
The highly sensitive UV and RID detectors sense even the lowest of sample concentrations and ensure reliable analysis results. The detectors are equipped with an intelligent temperature control function that compensates for temperature variations and thus stabilizes the process. All you need to do is set the column thermostat to a target temperature of between 5 °C and 85 °C and you’ll get consistently reproducible results.
The perfect column for any challenge
KNAUER offers more than 6,000 HPLC and UHPLC columns. So there is always the most suitable, top quality column, no matter what the application is.
The AZURA HPLC/UHPLC systems offer extra flexibility through their compatibility with the columns of other manufacturers. They can be used with all standard columns available on the market. Thus, there is no need to change the validated column brand.
Safe and easy maintenance
The AZURA HPLC/UHPLC systems are equipped with a leakage management system. Capacitive liquid sensors immediately trigger an alarm in the event of a leak. This ensures safety during operation because you can intervene quickly.
Another feature is the "K-Connect" technology, which makes it easy to tighten all capillary connections up to 700 bar by hand. Hence there is no need to search for the appropriate tool.
Maintenance is also very easy and can be performed by technicians without any special training. This is because the AZURA HPLC/UHPLC systems are constructed to allow direct frontal access to the detector lamp and pump head, so the device does not need to be opened.
