The Zebron ZB-Drug-1 column for GC analysis of drugs of abuse is a mid-polarity stationary phase that separates analytes from the common matrix interferences found in biological samples.
The Series 275 HRes photo diode array is designed to accelerate productivity and performance for laboratories performing LC analysis. Coupled into a Series 275 HRes LC system, the product is claimed to provide improved peak identification and peak purity determination in addition to increased throughput.
The Acclaim Rapid Separation LC (RSLC) 2 µm bonded silica columns provide a 2.1 mm internal diameter in both 50 and 100 mm lengths and are packed with Dionex C18 or Polar Advantage II (PA2) stationary phase.
The Lux line of polysaccharide-based columns is suitable for the identification and resolution of enantiomers. Lux columns are offered with two chiral stationary phases (CSPs), both of which use coated derivatised cellulose as the chiral selector.
Phenomenex has introduced a range of Luna PFP(2) (pentafluorophenyl propyl) columns. These bring together the advantages of Luna silica with the chemistry of a pentafluorophenyl for increased selectivity and reproducibility for difficult compounds.
EST Analytical has introduced the Markelov HS 9000 static and dynamic headspace system. It was designed with features such as the dual needle and horizontal rotary mixing to make it fast and sensitive.
Varian has released its 400 GC series family of gas chromatographs and application-specific analysis solutions.
The Gerstel MPS PrepStation automates a wide range of GC sample preparation and sample introduction techniques. Liquid sample preparation, such as standard addition, derivatisation and extraction, is combined with liquid, headspace or SPME sample introduction.
The EnSight biodiesel analyser can be used to monitor reactions, determine total glycerine and profile feedstock oils, all with a single instrument.
Peak Scientific has available a range of gas generators designed to supply hydrogen, UHP nitrogen and zero air to gas chromatographs.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced a line of silica-based TurboFlow columns designed exclusively for use with Thermo Scientific Transcend Systems. The columns provide scientists in clinical research and pharmaceutical analysis the capability to integrate online sample preparation with LC-MS analysis. The TurboFlow XL columns enable researchers to reduce sample preparation time and minimise ion suppression, while providing faster analysis and more confident data.
The HT280T is a single unit combining static headspace analysis, liquid sample injection and SPME (solid phase microextraction).
The new HT400E is a fully automatic solid phase extraction system and HPLC autosampler for unattended sample preparation and HPLC analysis.
Phenomenex's AXIA is an advanced column packing and hardware design that is claimed eliminates bed collapse as a source of failure in short prep columns. Using hydraulic piston compression (HPC) technology, several fundamental problems faced daily by preparative chromatographers have been solved: collapse, voiding or channelling of the support bed after packing - causing premature column failure; variability in bed density - degrading overall reproducibility; low and/or variable efficiency - making scale-up from analytical more difficult; and peak distortion or asymmetry - reducing the return on each purification cycle.
Waters has introduced two sets of columns for the purification and analysis of oligonucleotides. The Acquity UPLC OST C18 columns have been specifically designed to work with the Waters family of Acquity UltraPerformance LC products. The XBridge OST C18 columns are designed for advanced oligonucleotide HPLC separations. Both products are suitable for purifying and analysing synthetic oligonucleotides including siRNA, primers and probes, therapeutic drugs made by oligonucleotide manufacturers, diagnostic kit makers, government and university laboratories, and biotechnology companies.
