Properties of NLAB Saga®

The company’s silica for chromatography, NLAB Saga®, has been developed to meet the expectations of industrial scale purification by chromatography. An optimized combination of pore volume, high available surface area and ligand density, and high carbon load results in a robust and reliable product with stellar performance. Due to its exceptional mechanical and chemical stability, NLAB Saga® is an excellent choice for the purification of peptides such as insulin, insulin analogues and GLP-1 analogues.

The NLAB Saga® silica has a high loading capacity and low backpressure, well suited for preparative use and is easy to pack.  

Nanologica has full control of the entire manufacturing process, from raw material to finished product. NLAB Saga® has been tested and used by pharmaceutical companies manufacturing APIs at industrial scale, where quality, performance and durability are uncompromisable.

We take great pride in the quality and performance of our products – they embody our core values:
Swedish Excellence in Nanoporous Silica.
