Simulated moving bed technology
The simulated moving bed (SMB) process is a highly engineered process for implementing chromatographic separation. It is used to separate one chemical compound or one class of chemical compounds from one or more other chemical compounds based on their geometry and has advantages over using simple (batch) HPLC chromatography.
The technology allows the production of large quantities of highly purified material at a continuous and high rate of production, and decreases solvent and energy requirements.
When combined with other KD Pharma technologies, SMB can produce extremely high concentrates of EPA, DHA, DPA and other specific Omega-3s.
