Product News: Phenomenex Expands LC SecurityGuard™ Line With New Preparative Cartridge System

26 Feb 2008


Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the manufacture of separation science consumables, announces the addition of a new SecurityGuard™ PREP Cartridge System to its successful family of LC guard columns.

Designed specifically for preparative LC applications, the PREP system protects columns from 30 to 49 mm in diameter, including Phenomenex’s new AXIA™ high-throughput line. The SecurityGuard PREP System protects preparative LC columns from the damaging effects of chemical contaminants and microparticulates. The easy-to-use system is composed of a reusable, stainless-steel holder and a 15 x 30 mm ID cartridge. Replacement cartridges are available in a variety of bonded phases that can be matched with virtually every HPLC material. The SecurityGuard PREP System is ideal for preparative LC in applications such as drug discovery and development, fine chemical purification, and reference standard preparations.

“Security Guard lowers the cost per injection by extending the life of the column,” explained J.T. Presley, brand manager for Phenomenex. “ Through working with our best customers we learned they needed new ways to reduce overall costs. We designed this new SecurityGuard PREP system to help them do this without compromising their purification results. We’re pleased to expand this product line, which now protects columns from 2.0 mm to 49 mm ID.”
