History

We have been specializing in the development of analytical instruments since 1988.
Starting with HPLC automation devices for OEM customers, Prolab developed customized instrumentation solutions for customers in the pharmaceutical industry, like the CombiChem Station with its optional solvent manager.
An important product line was the HPLC solvent degassers which were marketed under our LabSource as well as OEM brand names.

Many of our developments are centered around micro- and nano-HPLC, which we pioneered in 1996 with the launch of the LabSource Evolution 200 µHPLC pump. Since these early days of driving down the used inner diameters of HPLC columns, we have collected a wealth of experience and know how together with our customers.

A line of products were launched and marketed, under our own and partnered brands, for the efficient evaporation of solvents.

The development of column thermostats, for both cooling and heating, lead to the development of the very successful “HotDog” Column Ovens which are still available today.

The SCAP PLS and SCAP DBS systems innovated in the field of microsampling automation.

In recent years, the development of the latest micro and nano-HPLC system, Zirconium, with its automated speedy pre-compressing of solvents, integrated column oven, and excellent nanoflow performance, hugely benefit from the cumulated experience and know how that we have collected in this history of almost 30 years in analytical HPLC.
