Deciding Between Quaternary and Binary Systems: How to Select the Best UPLC System for Your Application Needs
11 Jul 2019

An LC system, including the solvent delivery system or pump, is often chosen based on availability, history or personal preference. While many methods are not significantly impacted by the pump, some workflows or applications benefit from either of the two most commonly used LC pumps: binary and quaternary. In this presentation, we will review how the binary and quaternary pumps deliver mobile phase to the column, along with the physical characteristics that impact separations, particularly for gradient methods. We will also discuss key application areas that might benefit from either the binary or quaternary pump, including method development, automated pH adjustment of mobile phase, long shallow gradients, routine analysis and high-throughput gradient methods. This discussion will provide the listener with a better understanding of the physical pump characteristics and how these features might impact gradient separations.

Join us to learn:

  • The key differences between binary and quaternary pumps
  • Which applications may benefit from a particular pump
  • How to select an LC system based on your application needs
Who Should Attend:
  • Scientists who want to understand LC pump characteristics
  • Anyone who is selecting an LC system for a specific application
  • Scientists who need to perform method transfer across different LC systems
