One column for the purification of different type of molecules
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area: Purification of new molecules after synthesis

"We synthesize new molecules based on peptides or polyethyleneglycol coupled with anticancer drug. It is really difficult to develop analytical methods to purify these molecules, it is why we bought a generic column XBridge. After few months of development, we obtained correct results adjusting gradient conditions according to the molecule studied and results are repeatable."

  • Application Area:Peptide purification

"In our lab, we have been using it to purify 19 or 18 amino acid peptides. We have managed to purify different variants of the peptides. The resolution was very nice, and easy to manage, and can tolerate different buffer pH etc. Our oldest column is just about 1 year old. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons the yield we get was very low, and the resolution power went bad. We have been using it with utmost care, but this happened. We need to figure out what has happened."

  • Application Area:Analytical developement

"Good column to use for separation. very Maximize Lab Efficiency. Improve Your LC I use several C18 HPLC columns, varying in column length and particle size, as well as packing material diameter, separate GMP starting materials, intermediates for API and drug products in standards and in various mother liquor. The column performances were compared both qualitatively and quantitatively. Factors investigated included efficiency, resolution, selectivity and analysis times, etc. Column lifetime was also examined. The results were used to evaluate the efficiency of the various columns for use in the chromatographic analysis. XBridge column is a very good column to use for separation, it let me complete method development and analytical support from starting materials to finished drug product."

"The column was a great addition to our laboratory, it works perfectly with the Preparative LC and the mass load is great. We can purify our target molecules and construct on a fast and reliable way from quite concentrated samples. Thanks to the method development tool from Waters, the method transfer from the Analytical scale to the prep scale allows us to keep a great resolution."

  • Application Area:Small molecule purification

"Unlike other vendors, the XBridge column is perfect for a wide range of pHs at minimal extra cost. So far we have injected >500 samples and have yet to see any deterioration in column performance. As coworkers have seen the performance of the XBridge column many are now relying more and more on this product in their day to day purifications. As a result we are expanding the number of columns we have to better suit their needs."

"Waters Application specialist help us to select the correct dimension of the column based on our application. On the receipt of the column, Application specialist was on site and help us to install and share his experience working with prep column. I am using this column almost every day and made more than 2000 injections with 10 mg/mL sample concentration and still, it works well for my application. I highly recommend this column and I am very happy with Waters products, their after sale support. The one thing that makes stand above all is their 90 days guarantee."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Small molecule purification

"These are excellent columns. They come in a variety of sizes to meet every need, we use mostly the 19 x 100 mm. These columns are great and meet our routine purification needs and give excellent efficiency and resolution for those more challenging ones. We find that the columns are very robust, ours can last years and many injections, in some cases, a good flush is all that is needed to get them back to optimal. Highly recommended."

Generate results, and consistently in use. Quite unique for a number of applications
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Radioligand purification and analysis

"The HPLC column provides sharp peaks in both weak acidic and basic conditions, and the retention times are quite consistent with extended periods of time. The column dies when sudden back-pressure increases, but normally after 3-6 months heavy use, probably 1500 injections. No special care is needed, as long as weak acid or base is used, but preferably maintaining at neutral conditions."

Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Separation of dsDNA different length fragments

"Column is easy to use and definitely reliable. It worked and separated my standard solutions nicely but it did not help me with separation of my reaction mixtures containing dsDNA of different length. E.g. I wanted to separate 31 bp oligonucleotide from 30 bp (or shorter) or 31 bp (or longer). The difference in molecular weight is too small that this column was not able to separate them. Even if I tried several and various gradients for separation."

Way to go, Waters!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Purification of synthetic compounds

"This reverse phase prep column proves to be a really worthy investment. Although it's a chromatography column, it is not at a consumable – in fact, it has lived longer than most of the other parts of the HPLC systems. It handles up to gram quantities of compounds with excellent separation power. We've had two for quite a few years, and the performance still holds up – no pressure buildup, no resident contamination on column. The elution profile is consistent over time, giving us excellent confidence in our compound purity."

  • Application Area:hilic separation

"The XBridge Amide column is prepared by high end capped silica particles, and it reduces or excludes our cation-exchange interaction when we use it in HILIC mode. HILIC phases are understood as mixed-mode phases, and the retention mechanism is difficult to understand due to its complex nature. In the case of XBridge Amide column, only hydrophilic partition mechanism seems to be important, and it is much easier to understand retention mechanism compared to another non-endo-capped stationary phases. In the case of a column, we do not need any after sales service, but we could find out the separation characteristics via the information from the company. The column is valuable in HILIC separation. It seems to be stable though the degree of hydrophilic nature and is somewhat lower than conventional amide bonded stationary phases. As mentioned above, this stationary phase is valuable to consider."

  • Application Area:pharmaceutical analysis

"In my opinion XBridge columns are one of the best available on the market due to its universality. I am using it widely for analytical separations and (especially) for preparative purpose. The major advantages are: broad pH range; high stability at high pH; high durability and low column bleeding."

  • Application Area:Dicarboxylic acids in atmospheric particulate matter

"I used XBridge Amide 3.5 um column for HILIC separation of atmospheric dicarboxylic acids. I found it very reproducible over a large period of time (> 3 months) while being extensively used during initial method development (use of different mobile phase buffers, pHs and organic solvents), method validation and application to atmospheric particulate matter. After more than 1000 injections with proper change of the guard, the analytical column preserved its initial efficiency and gave me the needed selectivity for separation of the various atmospheric acids. The column is still in good shape and operable. No increase of the column backpressure was observed during its use. We are very satisfied with the product and the level of service provided by Waters representatives."

"This variety of column was a workhorse for a test that we were conducting; it was robust enough to keep running without much maintenance involved. The column we were using performed very well under the strict time constraints that we were working with."

"X-bridge columns: Waters very reliable columns for HPLC separations and work very well at a wide range of mobile phase pH conditions, and may be very suitable for pH optimization studies for method development. I would highly recommend these columns to a colleague.  If I was doing a pH optimization study, I would like to know if the column was good/stable over a wide pH range."

  • Application Area:high ph buffer

"Most of the time it uses formic acid buffer, but there are needs to use high pH buffer like 0.1 % NH4OH. The column performs well and is very stable. If using 2.5 µm particles, consider the XP format as it is cheaper according to the webpage."

"Good, reliable, reproducible. Many methods were developed on this column with good result. It is good for basic conditions, have basic condition method with many injections, do not have column for 2 years and still running.  Good column, highly recommended to others. I like it very much, I will use it for basic conditions in the future."

"This product is nice because it allows us to increase separation resolution without changing the validated method. The X-Bridge columns are part of Waters new smaller particle size columns. The chemistry of the stationary phase is the same as the 5um columns we have used in the past but packing is now 3.5um. We have just started using the columns so I cannot comment on the shelf life difference."

"This is a very rugged column in reversed phase chromatography with a wide pH range. It is an ideal column for method development with maximum flexibility across the entire pH range. This is a very good column for isolation and purification, the high pH stability of XBridge Prep columns allows for purer fractions and increased mass loading for bases. It gives batch to batch reproducibility, consistent results and extended lifetime under even the most demanding conditions. "
