Product News: New System for Fast and Consistent Results Makes UHPLC Widely Accessible

Thermo Scientific Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC system boosts high-speed applications and provides exceptional LC and LC-MS performance

21 Jun 2016

Researchers looking for fast and consistent results can now benefit from the new ultra high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) system from Thermo Fisher Scientific to boost their LC and LC-MS performance.

As the latest addition to the Thermo Scientific Vanquish UHPLC platform, the new Thermo Scientific Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC system adds a binary solvent delivery option in the 1000 bar (15,000 psi) performance range. The system is built for high-speed, fast gradient applications and the Vanquish platform’s inherent outstanding retention time reproducibility. The Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC system is the solution for laboratories performing qualitative and quantitative LC or LC-MS analysis that need to increase sample throughput. Ease-of-use and innovative technologies that are robust by design are making UHPLC widely accessible and enable easy and effective method transfer from established systems and applications.

“As the newest addition to our Vanquish platform, we developed this system with speed, sensitivity and quality results in mind—providing the level of operational efficiency required by today’s researchers,” said Fabrizio Moltoni, vice president and general manager, HPLC at Thermo Fisher. “The Vanquish Flex Binary system showcases these attributes and provides exceptional LC and LC-MS performance together with our products for sample preparation, reagents, columns, mass spectrometry and data processing.” 

The Vanquish Flex Binary System features a binary high-pressure gradient pump with 2 x 3 solvent channels and low gradient delay volume capable of delivering high flow rates of up to 8 mL/min. The entire system provides biocompatible flow path, SmartInject using intelligent sample pre-compression, selectable thermostatting modes and a unique range of detection capabilities.

The Vanquish Flex Binary system will be exhibited at the 44th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC) in the Thermo Fisher Booth #601 from June 19-24 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco.
