Torrance, Calif -- Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces the publication of a 52-page selection guide for reversed-phase chromatography media and columns. The new guide takes the reader through a streamlined process for selecting the optimal core-shell or fully porous solid support, including how each impacts performance. The guide also reviews the importance of selectivity and the parameters that affect it, followed by data-backed tips on selecting the right column for seven different compound classes plus special cases.
“Column selection for reversed-phase HPLC and UHPLC analysis is notoriously difficult, even though reversed-phase is the most commonly used technique,” explains Jeff Lane, Ph.D., product and technical manager for Phenomenex. “There has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the selection process, which often involves costly trial and error. With our experience in developing and manufacturing so many different chromatography products, we’ve been able to streamline the column selection process.”
In addition to data-rich selection tools, the new guide provides a review of Phenomenex’s diverse portfolio of media, analytical and preparative columns and protection products along with performance information.
