Application Note: Low adsorption UPLC systems and columns based on MaxPeak High Performance Surfaces: The ACQUITY PREMIER solution
8 February 2021

Since the development of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), stainless steel has been the preferred material of construction for chromatographs and columns. However, this can result in challenges arising, such as poor peak shapes or low recoveries for certain analytes. 

In this white paper, Waters demonstrates how to overcome challenges in HPLC with a family of new technologies, named MaxPeak™ High performance Surfaces (HPS), and how this new technology has been applied to the components of a new UPLC system, named ACQUITY PREMIER, to help achieve optimal HPLC performance for metal-sensitive analytes.
