M.S.GEL®, functional spherical micro-porous silica, has been jointly developed by Asahi Glass Co., Ltd and AGC Si-Tech Co.,Ltd.
M.S.GEL® is widely used in high performance liquid chromatography packing to separate specified substances in the fields of pharmaceutical, agrichemical, biochemistry or organic synthesis. Moreover, M.S.GEL®‘s excellent properties can be supplied from analytical to large-scale preparative chromatography. M.S.GEL® is also anticipated to add impressive potential in various demands such as the refinement of a solvent for electronic fields by using its functionality.
New products launched:
- Large pore size (50nm~200nm) products which are suitable for separation of protein and carrier of bioreactions.
- Sulfopropyl modified and Carboxymethyl modified products for ion exchange type applications.
- Silica based packing for analytical & preparative chromatography.
(Separation media for proteins, peptides, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, intermediate purification, etc.)
- Release carriers for cosmetics, fragrances and antiseptic.
- Catalyst and catalyst carriers or resin fillers.
- Adsorption and removal of ionized compounds from organic solvents.
Characteristics of M.S. Gel®:
- M.S.GEL® consists of spherical particles which do not cohere. It provides an excellent tactile feeling because the particles roll freely.
- M.S.GEL® is a perfectly spherical shape enabling higher loading capacity with lower back pressure and good separation performance.
(Controlled particle size grade performs well).
- A range of particle sizes are available from 2-200µm with narrow particle size distributions depending on the application. Since these grades are manufactured by the same process, M.S.GEL® can easily be scaled up from analytical to preparative separations.
- Mean pore size, with strictly controlled pore size distribution, is available from 6-100nm.
- Surface area (80-800m2/g) and pore volume (0.7-1.5ml/g) also can be selected.
- Large pore products (pore size 50nm~200nm) are applied to separation of protein and carrier of bioreactions.
