Application: Column device (Patent ID: US20230384269A1)

The patent filed by F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. describes a column device for an automatic analyzer, specifically designed for use with a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) module. The column device includes a column jacket and a capillary with predetermined dimensions, allowing for automatic fixation and release within the HPLC module. Additionally, the column device is equipped with guiding elements for easy installation and a RFID tag for storing important information about the column.

Furthermore, the patent also details an automatic analyzer incorporating the HPLC module with the fixation device and the column device. This automatic analyzer is capable of carrying out a diagnosis process of the HPLC module using the fixed column device, injecting an inert analyte through the capillary, and automatically triggering maintenance or predictive maintenance based on information stored in the RFID tag. The analyzer can also display relevant information to the user and trigger predetermined actions of the HPLC module, such as routine operation or maintenance tasks.
