Researchers working with complex samples can now benefit from new UHPLC columns that are designed to provide advanced separation power, speed of analysis, and throughput.
The new Thermo Scientific Vanquish UHPLC columns, which made their debut during Pittcon 2016 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, are the latest addition to the Vanquish family and are specifically designed to complement the high-performance Thermo Scientific Vanquish UHPLC systems. The portfolio, which consists of 16 UHPLC columns, offers a wide range of selectivity and format options for different applications including rapid screening for drugs of abuse, pesticide analysis, metabolite analysis, and peptide analysis.
New or advanced hardware and packing methods enable the new UHPLC columns to operate at higher flow rates and pressures than previous Thermo Scientific columns, producing excellent separations and fast results. Columns without these high specifications would not be able to produce the same quality of results or throughput. The new columns are also extremely robust and designed to seamlessly integrate with Vanquish system features including intelligent sample pre-compression.
The UHPLC systems are integrated and fully biocompatible, addressing the needs of chromatographers performing state-of-the-art UHPLC. Built around the columns, the systems deliver precise separations, owing to the thermostating options in the column compartment that enable high resolution. The system also delivers speed, a large dynamic range, and high sensitivity.
