Great results with precision and accuracy. Easy to use it.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Pharmaceuticals, peptides, metabolites, natural products

"This equipment is a very effective for my research work especially for analysis of pharmaceuticals and peptides. Gives me great results with precision and accuracy. Easy to use it, especially for the students if it is used for educational reasons. It can be used for the development of analytical protocols for the determination of multi-class compounds such as pharmaceuticals from difficult matrices such as urine. In addition to that, it is good value for the money and we are very pleased with after-sales care."

Sufficient results without derivatization.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Free amino acids in culture supernatant

"It is comparable to columns that do not require derivatization of other amino acids. Since it shows characteristic retention in HILIC mode, the 1st and 2nd choice columns are just right when considering separation."

Excellent results, they are implemented more than necessary in the laboratory!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analytical science

"A wide variety of polar analytes (acidic, basic, and neutral) can be analyzed without derivatization or complex ion pairing. They are used in ion exchange retention and HILIC modes when changing the mobile phase. They are ideal for increasing sensitivity and selectivity in LC-MS analysis. In terms of their valuation they are adequate comparing the performance when comparing with other brands for the same applications."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Food safety

"This column shows excellent performance while remaining cheap. When I contact the technical support team, they give me a kind and quick answer."

Review date: 24 Dec 2020 | Raptor Polar X LC Columns
  • Reliably analyze a wide variety of polar analytes (acidic, basic, and neutral) without time-consuming derivatization or complex ion pairing.
  • Switch between HILIC and ion-exchange retention modes with simple mobile phase changes and short equilibration times.
  • 2.7 μm Raptor core-shell particles provide UHPLC-like speed and efficiency on all makes and models of LC systems.
  • Ideal for increasing sensitivity and selectivity in LC-MS analyses.

Storage Conditions: When not in use, Raptor Polar X columns must be kept in 100% acetonitrile. If using a buffered mobile phase, first flush thoroughly with 50:50 water:acetonitrile, then fill with acetonitrile for storage.
