Interchim SA is a company with subsidiaries in 5 continents and its own distribution network. Founded in 1970, the company has many years of experience and knowledge in the field of synthesis and the life sciences, as well as chromatography, separation, purification, identification and characterisation.
As far back as 1990, Interchim SA introduced one of the first spherical silicon dioxides with small granulometry, which revolutionised analytical and preparative liquid chromatography.
In the early 2000s, Interchim SA developed the concept of ‘Ultra Performance Flash Purification’, becoming the first company to produce cartridges for Flash Chromatography on the basis of spherical silicon dioxide and small granulometry to obtain even more powerful separations, with greater loading capacity, and even better recoveries with unparalleled reproducibility.
In 2008, Interchim SA developed and manufactured instruments with which the flash cartridges and preparative columns could be used even more efficiently. This innovative instrumentation can reach a flow rate of up to 300mL/min and pressure of up to 400bar, offering incredible accuracy and reproducibility. These instruments are used as integrated solutions for multi-detection systems (Mass, ELSD, UV-dad, etc.) as well as in systems for increasing productivity in laboratories (CarouXel) – control of 10 columns, AutoSampler, 5X, etc). Their success is worldwide.
In 2018, Interchim SA developed a patent protected artificial intelligence, ‘Genius’, in the instrumentation. Since reading the TLC plate, it has never been easier and more intuitive to achieve the best possible separations in ‘flash and prep’ and to transfer methods of the analytical LC to the preparative and increase the productivity without reservation.
With the selection of puriFlash instruments, the Artificial Intelligence ‘Genius’, the Flash Chromatography Interchim puriFlash cartridges, as well as the analytical and preparative HPLC columns Interchim Uptishere puriFlash®; the Flash chromatography and preparative purification are accessible to all who want to achieve impeccable results.
