Rotor 1L - Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC)
As part of the Alibiotech project, the pharmacognosy laboratory of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Lille is interested in the potential antimicrobials (antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal) of plants and by-products with the aim of discovering new molecules in human or plant health. The purchase of a 1L rotor made it possible to complete equipment that the pharmacognosy department already possessed and which is unique within the Charles Viollette Institute, the CPC (Centrifugal Partition Chromatography). CPC is a preparative chromatographic tool for purifying these natural substances with good yields, sometimes in a single step. The 1L rotor allows purification of secondary metabolites at the preparative scale of samples (up to 30 g) which can then be tested for their biological activities.
