Armen Instrument

"Experience and Technique at the service of Purifications"

Armen Instrument was founded in March 1994 in Vannes (Brittany, France) in the purpose of develop, manufacture and market innovative instruments in the field of fractionation and purification.

In 1995, Armen Instrument introduced its first line of preparative and industrial HPLC pumps. As pump is the heart of LC system, this experience naturally brought us to develop complete flash and preparative systems as "turn-key" solution, but also complete industrial LC "custom" systems.

Since June 2003, Armen Instrument focused its researches to "Centrifugal Partition Chromatography" (CPC/CCC), a new innovative silica free chromatographic technology. The last patented invention in this field, called "True Moving Bed" (TMB), allows continuous injections, and can easily be compared to “Simulated Moving Bed” (SMB) which works with traditional HPLC columns.

In parallel, Armen Instrument set up an application laboratory for customer servicesconsulting and training on purification. Equipped with a large range of instruments, this laboratory can help for scale up and production, from bench to industrial scale.
