Octave BIO System

OctaveTM BIO MCC System

The Octave™ BIO is the most comprehensive and versatile multi-column chromatography (MCC) system for process development and proof of concept. Leveraging established Octave MCC technology from other industries and tailoring it for bioprocess use cases, these systems are designed to intensify your existing biologic purification process. The unique modular design will fit your requirements and unlock the resin savings, buffer savings, and other tangible benefits that MCC can provide.
