I have already recommended this product to a fellow scientist.
Application Area: Analysis of small molecules-multiple person sample prep
"This product is easy to use and definitely improves column life. I am much more confident about having students use the instrument because of this guard column."

Honestly, my lab couldn't operate without it.
Application Area:Liquid chromatography
"This guard cartridge system is so easy to use. It comes with everything you need to preserve the life of your LC column. We use the guard cartridge holder on all of the columns we have. Our chromatography is cleaner, sharper and it makes the column happy. It even comes with a hand wrench!"

"SecurityGuard offers a convenient and economical way to extend HPLC column lifetimes. It is effectively designed to eliminate carryover contamination which is the common cause of high backpressure, split peaks, broad peak, baseline noise and loss of valuable resolution. Such system works to trap any contamination from passing to the HPLC column; thus it can extend the lifetime of HPLC columns and result in better chromatography. It is very easy and simple to install and handle."
SecurityGuard offers a convenient and economical way to extend HPLC column lifetimes.
Did you know a common cause of high backpressure, split peaks, broad peaks, baseline noise, baseline drift and loss of resolution is contaminants? The fact is all mobile phases contain some chemical contaminants or microparticulates, from the sample, solvent, or wear on the polymeric seals of the pump or injector.
These contaminants can clog frits, irreversibly bind to an HPLC column, degrade performance, and even damage the flow cell. SecurityGuard™ is a universal HPLC guard cartridge system designed to effectively (and inexpensively), protect all your valuable analytical columns from the damaging effects of chemical contaminants, without altering your chromatographic results.
SecurityGuard cartridge system provides the following advantages: Universal Phases, No Change in Chromatography Universal Fit Provides Universal Compatibility Direct-view Feature for Easy Changing Ease of Cartridge Selection Phenomenex also offers an interactive web application where users can enter their HPLC column information to find the most appropriate column protection system.
