Keep your chromatograpy columns

vertical, secure and protected.

VertiRack for columns

Glass columns are a critical tool used in many labs.

Protein purification columns represent a significant sunk cost for the lab both in terms of the materials used, column hardware and resins, and the time spent to acquire these components and prepare them for use.

Yet despite the costs and risks, columns are often stored horizontally in drawers or are run on rickety stands.  Changing the column’s orientation from vertical to horizontal and then back can affect flow characteristics.

Stands made for low-end glassware don’t always hold up to the weight of packed columns.  Common laboratory supply stands can be difficult to move and assemble.  

Finally, columns are made of glass and they’re round, so they can easily roll off the lab bench resulting in expensive replacement costs.

Immobilizing columns securely and vertically both while running and for storage is best practice, but few convenient or safe options existed for supporting columns.  Until now!
