The following guide will focus on application markets, detailing the various different application markets, target compound types and associated separation modes. When selecting a column for a particular application, use the guide as a reference for identifying the separation mode to be used. This is the first step in choosing the right column for the desired application
In our HPLC column selection guide we provide a comparison of the following columns and their features: Reverse Phase Chromatography Columns, Polymer Based Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography (HILIC) Columns, Silica Based Reverse Phase Chromatography Columns (ODS), Silica Based Normal Phase Chromatography and HILIC Columns.
The following guidelines describe general indications of column deterioration and column cleaning procedures.
For best column performance, precautions must be taken when handling a HPLC Column. View our guide for column handling, looking at installation, removal, and storage.
Our HPLC USP column list details the USP requirements including packing material and recommended column for use when following USP methods.
The Flame Ionization Detector (FID) stands out as the predominant detection method in Gas Chromatography (GC) for identifying and measuring organic compounds.
The Electron Capture Detector (ECD) in gas chromatography (GC) is employed to detect compounds capable of undergoing electron capture reactions, displaying heightened sensitivity towards electronegative elements like halogens, as well as select nitrogen and oxygen compounds.
The Nitrogen-Phosphorus Detector (NPD) is a specialized instrument employed in Gas Chromatography (GC) for the discriminative detection of compounds containing nitrogen and phosphorus.
