Great results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Cotinine and THCs

"It has very good selectivity and provides very sharp peaks with very low tailing factor. Compared to other similar vendors' C-18 columns, Kinetex EVO C18 has the best UHPLC column performance, stability, reliability, and repeatability."

"I prefer Kinetex Core-Shell Columns over other UPLC/UHPLC columns. I have developed quite a variety of small molecule medicinal products using these columns. Usually the peak shapes are good and provides reasonable separation of analytes using simpler mobile phase without adding any modifier. One has to be careful about sample size and injection volume not to overload the column. "

"With our vast range of clients, our quality control lab receives all kind of sample to analyse. This column is often used to analyse a large range of samples. The low cost combined with the great range of pH in which this column can be used saves us a lot of trouble and gives us a great price/utility ratio."

  • Application Area:Routine analysis

"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 "

  • Application Area:HILIC separation of unknown polar metabolites

"The HILIC kinetex column has been great for separating out those residues that just wont separate by RP HPLC. The biggest challenge has been getting analytes into a solution suitable for HILIC initial conditions. Currently difficult to judge the robustness as it does not see a ton of action. However, the samples it has seen are "problem" plant and animal extracts and it has held up well so far!"

"The product is easy to use and gave good quality results. For separation of lipids using the RP C18 core shells - we are able to separate the different lipid classes and species and even some isobaric species. The resolution is good and the analyst can even use higher flow rates and still work within relatively low back pressure levels. I would continue to recommend the Kinetex Core-Shell columns. "

"Our Research Team (University of Molise, Campobasso, Italy) has worked for many years on the dietary use of natural extract on the animal welfare and the quality of animal production. To reach new knowledge in this topic, we use several Phenomenex products in order to evaluate the phenolic profile of natural plant extract, to monitor the welfare of animal and to characterize the quality of animal production with different kind of analysis. For the analysis of plant natural extract we have performed a HPLC method using a Kinetex 2.6μ XB – C18 column, reaching very successful results. "

"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 developed the method and validated it with three different batches of 1.7 µm columns. It was performed on two different HPLC systems and three different analysts. Everything looked fantastic with the lowest USP resolution of the 10 peaks of 3.0 in all runs. The robustness testing showed that I could change pH and acetonitrile concentration in a wide range without any significant loss of resolution. The method is transferred to QC (in another country) without any problems. They buy a large number of columns for the process validation. Only a few works. Peaks are split or very broad. They record the backpressure (very good, 20% less than other competitors)."

  • Application Area:Purificazione of Peptides and Peptidomimetics

"I have been using several HPLC columns for purification of peptides and peptidomimetics synthesis in my lab and I have never had in my hands a column with such simplicity in its use and endowed with high efficiency! I am using this column for the purification of several kinds of peptides, linear, cyclic and peptidomimetics with great satisfaction!"

"We are very satisfied with the product. The separation efficiency in combination with the release rate is more than adequate. In addition, the column holds many measurements and is very robust. With the service we are very satisfied. Occasionally I get calls with new offers, but not so many that it would be annoying. "

"I like the innovative idea of using sol-gel processing techniques with Nano structure technology. Additional features such as a porous shell structure minimizes band broadening. This reduction in band broadening results in chromatographic separations with better resolution, higher sensitivity, and improved peak capacities. I think this column is one of the best inventions in the pharmaceutical area."

  • Application Area:Kinetex XB C18

"I have used a number of core shell type columns and am very impressed with the short analysis times achievable on standard LC systems (after some replumbing). In addition, the increased endcapping of the Kinetex XB C18 over the Kinetex C18 allowed me to reduce the formic acid content of my mobile phase when analyzing basic compounds by LC-MS-MS that were previously prone to peak tailing due to secondary interactions with acidic silanols. Sensitivity also improved, due both to narrower peak widths and reduced signal suppression caused by the lower formic acid modifier concentration."

"Breakthrough technology for separations. I had these columns offered to me on a number of occasions to improve my UPLC/MS chromatography, when I finally did it made such a difference to the work we were doing. The sharpness of peaks were unparalleled and we could see low level peaks that were not there with conventional 1.8um columns. Because of the core shell particle the backpressure is much lower also resulting in higher flow rates and even faster more accurate separations. The Kinetex range of columns has now become our go to column for method development and we are branching out to replace old silica columns with the core shell equivalents for our normal HPLC separations."

"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

"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

"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. "

"The column seems rugged enough, especially with the guard cartridges. It performs well enough with my dilute-and-shoot methodology for the simultaneous detection of several opiods, benzos, and illicits. I probably get about 800 injections before I see a significant loss in sensitivity or performance. Customer support is very good."

"I started to use Kinetex C18, 2.6u a few weeks ago for botanical analysis such as ginseng, citrus etc. The back pressure and resolution are pretty good. Compared to conventional sub 2 um C18 columns, I like core shell columns like Kinetex. Even without UPLC, conventional HPLC still can run rapid resolution. Like the Kinetex C18, the Kinetex C8, 2.6u has superior back pressure and resolution. I am pretty happy to work with this column for my analytical job."

"We have been using the Kinetex columns to develop methods for detection of residual active pharmaceutical ingredients in swab and rinse samples from production equipment (i.e. cleaning). The 50mm biphenyl column has been great for polar and difficult compounds that have not resolved from the solvent front or other interferences using other C18, C8, or phenyl-hexyl columns. The methods are fast with good separation and peak shape."

"I bought the Kinetex column for developing LC/MS screening method for drugs of abuse in biological samples. The separation of the compounds of interest is excellent on this column in comparison to the previous column I was using for the same method. The efficiency and plate count for the compound of interest is higher than other sub-2um columns that I have tried. Due to the success of this column I achieved, I will definitely consider this column as my choice for developing new methods in the future. "

"I used this Kinetex column in my pharmacokinetics study. After using this column in my high performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrochemical detection, I felt that this column had the better separation and good reproducibility and the sensitivity is good. However, when I did my study, I had some problems. Because my study is about pharmacokinetic with microdialysis technique, my samples include a lot of salts. I felt that the reservation is very important. I usually clean my column with 10% methanol first and then with 50% methanol. It usually took a lot of time to clean the column."

  • Application Area:histamine in fish products

"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."

"This column is very much in use in our pharmaceutical laboratory. We use it every day because its efficiency is excellent. The analyses are very short and quick. Its practical use is in reverse phase chromatography and it tolerates organic solvents in sample preparation too. The sales people from Chromservis company are very friendly and can be reached by phone every day. The price of the column is relatively good, however it could be much cheaper. We are very successful with it."

  • Application Area:food

"Due to a short test phase we have not optimized our method completely so I can't tell how much time we will save. But up until now the separation is better and the peak shape is better. The retention times are shorter compared to a conventional C-18 due to the new kind of pre-column Phenomenex use."

  • Application Area:Separation Science/Analytical Chemistry

"Kinetex Columns (various particle sizes) are a great tool in separation science. They allow the analyst to perform very fast separations using traditional column back-pressures. Excellent peak shape and efficiency. I have given a neutral score of 3 for after sales service as it was not applicable."
