Teledyne LABS’ is a leader in the research, development and manufacturing of flash chromatography. The advantages of automated flash chromatography are many. It’s easy, fast, relatively inexpensive, requires minimal development time, uses less solvent, and offers more exacting results. These advantages make flash one of the most popular techniques for purifying pharmaceutical intermediates, as well as final organic products. It is also widely used in natural products research.

In addition, automated flash offers green advantages over manual flash columns, as automated systems can deliver changing solvent composition more easliy than manual methods. Users can then vary the solvent composition to increase the gradient strength throughout the run, forcing strongly retained compounds to elute off the column more quickly.

Today, Flash Chromatography is a completely automated preparative technique influenced by the CombiFlash® equipment designed and manufactured by Teledyne LABS.​
