Short bed monolithic columns for analytics

Samples taken at various process steps need to be analysed quickly and accurate results delivered, without affecting the state or condition of the original sample.

Understand a bioprocess through real-time monitoring

CIMac™ Analytical Columns from BIA Separations are short bed, high performance monolithic columns offering all the advantages of CIM® monolithic technology. They are primarily intended for fast, efficient, and reproducible separations of biomolecules like large proteins, plasmid DNA, and viral particles.

Small volume and short column length allow operation at high volumetric flow rates (from 1 to 30 column volumes/min), enabling product quantity and purity information to be available in just a few minutes.

The CIMac™ Analytical Columns are pre-packed in dedicated stainless steel housings and allow user-friendly connections to HPLC equipment, hence they can be effectively used for both the in-process and final control of various samples from different purification processes.



  • Speeds up method development and analysis time
  • Works even with only very shallow linear gradients
  • Flow rate can be changed without sample deterioration
  • Enables regeneration and cleaning under extreme conditions
  • Low sample and buffer consumption
