The deeptech start-up Separative, based at the Axel'One Innovative Processes collaborative platform in Solaize in the Chemical Valley, has developed an innovative process for separating molecules that is much more precise and rapid thanks to new HPLC preparative columns (element separation technique). This innovation reduces the pressures required by the state of the art of chromatography by a factor of 30, making purification processes 10 times faster and more efficient, at a much lower cost than current technologies. Separative won many French contests like I-Nov and I-Lab, but more importantly the start up won the EIC Accelerator Pilot in December 2020, a famous European contest for promising and innovative start up.
