Introducing Aurora Series nano-capillary columns

The most user-friendly columns on the market.

Aurora Series columns are designed and manufactured to remove all pre-column and post-column dead volumes, maximising the capacity of the chromatographic material to separate samples. These fittings eliminate the need for fiddly and time-consuming adapters, making Aurora columns the highest performing and most user friendly on the market.

Next generation plug-and-play nano-scale chromatography for superior LC-MS results.

Frustrated by the need to use fiddly, time-consuming and costly adapters whilst interfacing LCs with MS, nanoZero® was developed by researchers for researchers to achieve true "plug and play" fittings. Our design also eliminates pre-column dead volume and improves separation efficiency.


Let the results speak for themselves.

Lightning-fast peaks.

A combination of our nanoZero® UHPLC fitting and packed emitter tip results in zero pre-column and post-column dead volume; leading to lightning-fast peak shapes and maximum separation of samples.

Get more IDs from your sample.

Aurora series columns consistently deliver 20-25% more identifications compared to longer columns from competitors. Increase your IDs while reducing your load and equilibration times!

Results from a 1µg Hela cell tryptic digest using IonOpticks’ Aurora series columns featuring an integrated emitter tip (25cm X 75µm) compared to currently available commercial columns either with or without an integrated emitter tip (50cm X 75µm). Samples were run on a Thermo Q-Exactive Plus.

Designed by researchers,

for researchers.

Developed by an academic team of proteomics specialists at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, our products are designed for use by:

Proteomics researchers looking for high-performance and sensitive solutions for nano LC-MS

Academic research facilities looking for robust and cost-effective options to support researchers

Industry research facilities looking for reliable results to deliver products to market sooner

All our products are RoHS compliant.

Innovative design. Transforming proteomics.

Our columns are differentiated by two key technological advances: a unique packed emitter design that enables maximum mobile phase velocity with no post-column dead volume; and our own nanoZero® technology that provides user friendly ‘plug and play’ connections with true zero pre-column dead volume. Together, these features combine to maximise chromatographic efficiency and dramatically enhance performance, providing a best in class solution for peptide and metabolite LC-MS separations.
