Stable routine system.

  • Application Area: Food contaminants analysis

"Works stably in high-throughput 24/7 routine analysis. Only the thermostat in the autosampler has caused any problems - this had to be fixed twice."

Very good for general analytical applications. Good value for money.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analysis of different compounds by HPLC

"In my experience, the binary pump in the 1290 is one of the best in the market, it is capable of delivering very high flow rates with very little pulsing, as measured by the baseline noise. The instrument is compatible with several detectors, UV/Vis, DAD, MS, RI, fluorescence etc. [I have mine set up with a DAD and ES-MS in tandem]. The Chemstation software package is very user-friendly and faster to learn than other software systems. And it is much more affordable than its Waters and Thermo counterparts."

Works great for RP-HPLC, but...
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:SE-HPLC of Biologics

"As a long time Agilent user, I want to contribute a word of caution to those interested in using Agilent UHPLCs for salt-containing mobile phases. Agilent customer service (via phone) was surprised that the installation engineer said it was OK to run salts on the instrument. The small volumes cause the instrument to need a water flush immediately after every run, which is tough in our lab. We now have all UHPLC systems dedicated to RP-HPLC, which works VERY well on these instruments. It is also nice to have the purging integrated into the software, enabling us to fully control the instrument from our remote desktops outside of the lab (think COFFEE!)."

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you indeed for the feedback – it is great to hear you are having a good experience with Reverse Phase experiments on the 1290 Infinity II system. In regards to mobile phases with a high salt content, we do have users around the world running phosphate and other buffers routinely. We at Agilent also run similar types of experiments with robust and reliable results. One approach we have been successful with is to work with users to improve uptime by reducing the concentration of the salts while still maintaining sufficient buffering capacity; one possibility is to work with your local Agilent representatives or the phone support team to see if this is an option for your methods. Thank you very much for your feedback and for your purchase. Please don’t hesitate to contact Agilent if we might be of assistance with this or any other issue.

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analysr drug residues in blood samples

"I am using the Infinity II Series LC as a separation front end for my QTOF instrument in drug screening. The LC provides very robust performance and it is also easy to maintain. Built-in functionality such as the autosampler purging and washing helps reduce carryover which is a major concern for the type of work we do. We have another lab using the Infinity II LC, making use of the large volume injection capability to do small to medium scale purification work. This Infinity II LC series is indeed flexible and versatile, making it suitable for small and medium scale types of work flow."

  • Application Area:Analyze drugs of abuse in urine samples.

"I use the 1290 Infinity LC as a separation front-end with a MS for the screening and detection of drugs of abuse in urine and plasma samples. Works great as a front end for LC-MS applications. Provides fast UHPLC separations that goes well with fast MRM detection that I am using. The LC is also easy to maintain and robust in performance. It lets me customize the system for both conventional analytical LC flow rates as well as fast LC flow rates. Very flexible. "

Excellent for method development, robust and good customer support
Rating: 5.0
"Excellent for method development 8 columns, 12 solvents, no baseline noise practically Robust - we use it 4 .5 years without any spare part replacement. When call to support then immediately good and useful response. For cheaper system we spend more money to repair and buy spare parts. "

"A good system but not as good as Acquity Waters UPLC or even Shimadzu Nexera. Carry over problems with some sticky compounds and needed to buy an extra module flexicube to get rid of the issue."

  • Application Area:Analysis of cavitand derivatives

"It is a very good and very useful instrument. However, the software Masshunter sometimes does not work well. I use this instrument for the analysis of cavitad derivatives."

  • Application Area:Pharmaceutical analysis

"Very easy to use, high sample throughput, online degassing and four lines for solvents. Easily made compatible with the software and very easy to use in combination with mass spectrometry. Not much after sales assistance provided so would be beneficial for new users to read a training manual prior to use but very simple to learn how to use through online manual with software. I would recommend to a colleague."

  • Application Area:BIOCHEMICAL

"It is easy to use, and well controlled with Analyst from ABSciex. It is easily connected to systems not sold by Agilent. The negative point would be that the Gameboy used to handle it manually for conditioning or column washing should be comprised in the package. The price of this Gameboy seems to be exaggerated to me."

  • Application Area:Pharmaceutical

"It is very easy to use. I am able to extract data at different wavelengths and to extract ion chromatographs. Also it suggests the structures if I enter the mass which I can correlate with my impurities. We have connected this system with 2D applications and it is very easily manageable and we are able to get the data without changing our methods and can still use buffers like phosphate."

  • Application Area:Formulation development of pesticides

"The instrument is robust and rarely breaks down. It is efficient and allows a lot of samples to be analyzed in a short time. The instrument is easy for method transfer, the method can be easily transferred from other instruments (i.e. low pressure HPLC to UHPLC)."

"Robust, reliable performance."

Review date: 05 Aug 2011 | Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC System

The 1290 Infinity II LC System is an ultra-high performance LC that has market-leading sample capacity and is designed for the lowest dispersion for the most challenging ultra-HPLC experiments. The 1290 Infinity II LC system is designed to be both a HPLC and high-end UHPLC system in a single flow path, giving you robust and excellent performance no matter what application you are running while seamlessly integrating into your existing laboratory environment.

Features:

  • More chromatographic resolution from specially designed components in the sample flow path to achieve the lowest system dispersion
  • Higher peak capacity for challenging separations - switch easily between single dimension high-end UHPLC and the ultimate chromatographic power of 2D-LC
  • Lower carryover for uncompromised data quality - multiwash capabilities of the Agilent 1290 Infinity II Multisampler reduce carryover to less than 10 ppm even for challenging compounds such as chlorohexidine
  • Unique detection capabilities - combine lowest detection limits with an ultrawide dynamic range by using the new Agilent 1290 Infinity II HDR-DAD or 1290 Infinity II ELSD
  • Faster injection cycles with dual-needle injection - for higher sample throughput
  • Higher sample capacity per bench space - up to 6144 samples within the footprint of a standard Agilent stack
  • Flexibility for all applications - through wide power, temperature, an automatically scalable injection range, and gradient options
  • Seamless transfer of methods between LCs, regardless of the brand - facilitated by intelligent system emulation technology (ISET) delivering unchanged retention time and peak resolution
  • Seamless integration in your chromatography data system - Agilent InfinityLab LC instrumentation runs smoother when controlled through third-party chromatography data systems such as Waters Empower or Thermo Scientific’s Chromeleon using the Agilent instrument control framework (ICF)
  • Lower total cost of ownership - select from a variety of tools to achieve lowest cost-per-sample
