True zero dead volume

Aurora™ Series columns are designed and manufactured to remove all pre- and post-column dead volume, maximising the capacity of the chromatographic material to separate samples. Our fittings and integrated emitter tip eliminate the need for fiddly and time-consuming adapters, making Aurora columns the highest performing and most user friendly on the market.

Consistent results over multiple experiments and hundreds of injections.

Eight proteomics experiments on a single 15cm Aurora Elite™ column, and counting.

Generation 3 Aurora Series UHPLC packed emitter columns not only drive the highest proteomics performance available, but do so in a revolutionary plug-and-play format that has replaced the need for unreliable and fiddly bespoke connections.
A key enhancement of Generation 3 has been increased longevity and consistency, while maintaining the unrivalled sensitivity, throughput and depth of discovery synonymous with previous generations.

IonOpticks' proprietary manufacturing process creates a product that performs consistently for longer.
Testing of our columns has demonstrated that with proper sample processing, Generation 3 Aurora Series columns can achieve elite results consistently for more than 3 months of solid use across a wide range of sample types.

Aurora™ Series columns consistently deliver 20-25% more protein identifications compared to longer columns from competitors. Increase your IDs while reducing your load and equilibration times.

Results from a 1µg Hela cell tryptic digest using IonOpticks’ Aurora series columns featuring an integrated emitter tip (25cm X 75µm) compared to currently available commercial columns either with or without an integrated emitter tip (50cm X 75µm). Samples were run on a Thermo Q-Exactive Plus
