Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

Instantly Improve 5 µm HPLC Methods

Immediately improve resolution, productivity, and sensitivity of your current 5 µm analytical and prep HPLC methods by dropping in a Kinetex 5 µm Core-Shell Technology Column. This core-shell particle was specifically developed for use on standard or order model HPLC systems that may have low pressure limitations

Core-Shell Science

Using sol-gel processing techniques that incorporate nano-structuring technology, a durable, homogeneous porous shell is grown on a solid silica core to create a core-shell particle. This particle morphology results in less band broadening compared to fully porous particles and thus delivers extremely high efficiencies.

  • Application Area: Routine analysis

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"We use Kinetex 5 micron C18 columns in a synthetic lab for routine reaction monitoring. Most of the time it's a simple dip-dilute-and-shoot sample prep with no specific clean-up. The column survived well and gave excellent results, both in peak shape and sharpness. Some of our samples have very polar and chelating bisphosphonate groups, and the column handled them well. The 5 micron columns give 70~80% of the resolution power of what 2.7 micron columns offer, with significantly lower back pressure. They are well suited for a simple drop-in upgrade for older instruments that cannot handle the high pressure of small particle size columns. The new EVO columns give the same or better peak shape, with significantly wider usable pH range. We haven't used those for long enough to comment on their longevity. But the current column has survived over 500 tissue samples (blend and organic solvent precipitation) without notable degradation. Their customer care and technical support teams are very "

"The column is very sensitive and allows for separation and identification of nano-materials that I would not be able to characterize with other columns. Plus, the offer of 2 columns for the price of 1 was incredible. Thank you."

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"Direct comparison of Supelco Discovery C18 (5 µm, 150x4.6mm) and Kinetex C18 (5 µm, 150 x 4.6mm): Analysed the same day on the same instrument (Agilent 1200), using the same sample and mobile phase: Instrument: Agilent 1200 Mobile phase: 20% acetonitrile in 5 mM acetate buffer pH 4.5 (isocratic) Sample: 20 µl of a 100 µg/ml solution (in-house peptide) Flow: 0.5 ml/min Temp: 50°C Retention time Supelco column: 18 minutes Kinetex column: 14 minutes (More retention on the Supelco column, maybe not so surprising) Tailing factor Supelco column: 1.8 Kinetex column: 1.4 (clearly better symmetry on the Kinetex column) Plate count Supelco column: 12.000 plates Kinetex column: 16.000 plates (I am a bit shocked that the Kinetex column gave so much better efficiency. I may have overloaded the Supelco column, giving a lower plate count and more asymmetry) Conclusion: The Kinetex and Supelco columns are probably comparable. The Kinetex column appears to have a better load."

"I recommend to use the pentafluorophenyl columns as they proved to separate phenols and also isomeric phenolic compounds with good efficiency. In our analysis, Oxidation Dyes and direct Dyes are well separated."

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"The Kinetex columns are, without a doubt, the single biggest efficiently generator a QC laboratory can introduce. After moving over from standard columns to Kinetex, 90 minute methods were reduced to 26 minutes, solvent costs were substantially reduced and overnight runs could now be completed and reported on the same day and all with no loss in quality. The potential savings to a typical QC lab are staggering!"

  • Application Area:Liposoluble vitamins and other compounds in animal production

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"My opinion on Kinetex columns (model purchased Kinetex 5u C18 100A) was extremely positive. For determining fat soluble vitamins and other compounds of fat in different biological matrices of animal origin, the results are more than satisfactory. Compared to previous models, both Phenomenex and other trademarks, the Kinetex has outlined peaks with elution times anticipated. This led me to shorten the total time, resulting in a limited consumption of eluent and, ultimately, a tangible economic saving."

  • Application Area:Antibiotics, Pesticides

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"Product is used for routine antibiotics-screening and non-routine analysis of certain pesticides. It's a robust column, providing sharp peaks with stable retention times, which leads to a short HPLC-method (ca. 20 min). We could change our former 2.6 µm Kinetex column into this 5 µm column without loss of resolution or elongation of the method. The 2.6 µm column got dirty quite fast by small particles that weren't held back by the guard-system and had to be replaced. This is not a problem with the 5 µm column. It is flushed and cleaned easily and thus can be used for a longer time before it has to be replaced. "

"Over the past 25 years I have used various columns and the recent Kinetex columns by Phenomenex are extremely robust and have phenomenal properties to retain polar acidic metabolites. They work well even under fairly acidic conditions (e.g 0.1 % TFA) and the reproducibility of analytes on these is very close to perfect."

  • Application Area:histamine in fish products

  • Kinetex® 5 µm Core-Shell Columns

"Phenomenex Kinetex UHPLC columns are easy to use in the analysis of histamine in fish products. It is very important in the regions of Italy (Puglia and Basilicata), mostly in samples under seizure protocol because this column allows analyses which are fast and sensitive. Screening methods are ELISA and confirmatory analytical method is UHPLC with fluorescence detection with post-column derivatization with orto-phthalaldheide (OPA) and thiofluor. The legal limits are 100 mg/kg and 200 mg/kg in fish products. The confirmatory method is very fast (running time is 10 minutes and total time analysis is of 25 minutes). The sample is formed by 9 units, therefore fast analysis is very good."
