A new smartphone application will benefit biotech researchers and other life scientists who employ membrane chromatographic techniques, whether they are novices or expert practitioners.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (Aubagne, France) recently introduced the Sartobind App to complement its Sartobind membrane adsorber portfolio. The application (app) was optimized for Apple iPhones but will run on many android smartphones as well.

The company will use the app to provide mobile phone users with a selection of training tools to complement its chromatography product portfolio and provide links to all the literature available in its digital library.

The app features a product finder that enables both novices and experts to select the appropriate membranes required for various chromatography processes and procedures. Beginning chromatographers will benefit from the app's Ion Exchange Calculator, which clarifies the interplay between pH and the isoelectric point of the protein of interest.

A flexible search function for downloading application notes and other literature according to search parameters related to target molecule, membrane type, device format, and scale will be appreciated by more experienced users. Other valuable features for all users are a flow rate calculator, an isoelectric point list for proteins and viruses, a comprehensive chromatography glossary, and a FAQ document.

The chromatography app can be downloaded free-of-charge online (please see Related Links below.
