Chromalite CGA and CGC chromatographic ion exchange are polymers for small organic and inorganic compound separation and purification. Chromalite® CGA and CGC resins are spherical, uniform and highly purified chromatographic ion exchange resins for column separations covering all ranges of particle sizes and applications, from laboratory to plant scale. This range of polymers made of styrene crosslinked with various percentages of divinylbenzene (DVB) is produced by a proprietary manufacturing technology that creates whole, perfectly spherical beads with exceptional kinetic and packing properties for chromatographic separations. Differently for similar products on the market Chromalite CGA and CGC resins are supplied in highly pure form (very low extractables content) and do not require pre-treatment and can be used as they are for pharmaceutical applications.

  Equivalent to:
