    Below are some resources for those who just can’t wait to start learning!

    N-Rich® Technology

    The N-Rich technique is a twin-column cyclical enrichment process whereby a target molecule or chromatographic region is selectively enriched while the undesired products are simultaneously depleted.

    View this informational page for an overview of N-Rich technology, a visual animation of the process, and some published case studies.


    YMC Contichrom® CUBE

    The Contichrom CUBE is a flexible purification system for process development of (bio-)pharmaceuticals such as monoclonal antibodies, peptides, and oligonucleotides. It performs batch, integrated batch, and continuous processes. Workshop attendees will be using this benchtop system during the hands-on segments!
