GE Healthcare Life Sciences

The heritage of GE Healthcare Life Sciences stretches back more than 250 years. Since then, our tools for biopharmaceutical manufacturing and life science research have had an impact on the lives of millions. James Whatman dedicated his life to the manufacture of high-quality paper. The Whatman filter was pivotal in chromatography work that led to the 1952 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Meanwhile, other filtration techniques led to the discovery of Sephadex. Who could have guessed that it would have been the springboard to so many innovations in the life sciences industry?

Today, most biopharmaceuticals are manufactured using products that can trace their heritage back to Sephadex. Since the beginning, Amersham products have led the way in biomolecular labeling, detection and imaging — enabling breakthroughs in science and medicine, such as the human genome project. GE Healthcare Life Sciences is committed to carrying on this tradition of innovation and developing tools that help scientists make a positive difference in our world.

Protein Research

Pure proteins today. Powerful results tomorrow.

We offer a large range of chromatography media to purify proteins using manual methods or automated chromatography systems. Our tools cover a variety of prepacked formats for convenient protein purification such as gravity columns, spin columns, 96-well plates, as well as prepacked columns for use with automated chromatography systems.
