Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Columns Designed to Improve Performance of Conventional HPLC MethodsThermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has introduced Thermo Scientific Accucore XL HPLC columns, engineered to significantly increase the performance of conventional HPLC separations without modifying the instruments or methods.
Thermo Fisher will showcase the new Accucore™ XL HPLC columns at ISC 2012 in Toruń, Poland at booth 6B.
Tests in Thermo Fisher’s internal laboratory show that Accucore XL HPLC columns, based on Core Enhanced Technology using 4 µm solid core particles, allow users of conventional HPLC methods to enjoy performance far beyond that of columns packed with 5 µm, 4 µm or even 3 µm fully porous particles.
Core Enhanced Technology™ is a combination of Thermo Fisher’s state-of-the-art particle technology and extensive experience in phase bonding and packing. The columns feature solid core particles, tight control of particle diameter, advanced bonding technology and automated packing processes.
Very high separation efficiencies using standard HPLC instruments and conditions provide increased peak resolution and lower limits of detection. An ultra-stable packed bed results in exceptionally robust columns that demonstrate excellent retention and response reproducibility.
“The Accucore XL HPLC column range is targeted at those labs desiring better sensitivity, resolution and robustness when compared to conventional 3 and 5 µm HPLC columns,” said Darren Thomas, Thermo Fisher business director and general manager, Chromatography Consumables. “Accucore XL HPLC columns can achieve these improvements with no modification to the customer's current method. Consequently, customers can see better results and an enhanced return on their investment.”
