Chromatography is a method to separate various compounds from the mixture of sample or natural solution by various chromatographic techniques using chromatography instruments. It involves separation of biomolecules on the basis of size, type, and other attributes that needs stationary phase, mobile phase, and elutants for carrying out the separation procedure. The chromatography instrument comprises of pumps, gels, columns, detectors, and software for the system used among various chromatography types. However it is important to know the sample type for choosing the chromatography instruments. The chromatography can be analytical chromatography which is used in environmental labs and preparative chromatography which is used in pharmaceutical industry. The chromatography instruments has benefits in research due to their ability of separation, analysis, and purification of molecules in an effective manner. The chromatography instruments are used in various industries such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, chemical, environmental testing, food and beverages, drug discovery, and semiconductor industries.
