Single-Use Batch Chromatography Systems

Implementation of single-use technology can lead to significant savings in capital, materials, labor, and facility operating costs.  

This can be achieved with our Standard Allegro single-use chromatography system platform, along with standard SU accessory equipment. Or it might lead to the creation of a custom design. The custom designs will still retain the core components that we have validated for use in the Allegro single-use chromatography system.   

A review of your specific process needs with our global Integrated Solutions team (INSO) will ensure a solution is offered to meet precisely all of the process requirements. 

Find the Right Solution for Your Chromatography Process

The Allegro single-use chromatography system is a system designed for pilot scale, clinical production batches, and commercial production. The flexible modular system design enables column and membrane operation with isocratic or gradient set up options. 
Attributes Allegro™ Single-Use Chromatography System
Mode of Operation  Capture, Bind and Elute and Flow-Through 
Hold up volume  Single-Use flow-path by multi-port pinch valves have hold up volumes equivalent to traditional Multi-Use block valves
Multi Product Operation  The flow rate per column or membrane can be optimized for the process by choosing one out of two tubing sizes; Sensors are pre-calibrated while installing a new flow path is easy and intuitive.

 Allegro™ Single-Use Chromatography System

The Single-Use Flow Path design in Allegro is unique in its kind as all the flow path crossings are implemented as compact manifold blocks. This fact also simplifies the change-over between batches or between products. One system hardware covers an operational flow range up to 900 L/h, typically sufficient for columns from 10 to 60 cm diameter and membranes from 75ml to 3L.
