Protection system extends UHPLC column life
Securityguard Ultra system
Phenomenex has launched Securityguard Ultra, a protection system that extends UHPLC column life and is said to be suitable for virtually any manufacturer's UHPLC, sub-2-micron or core-shell columns.
Securityguard Ultra protects against the damaging effects of chemical contaminants and microparticulates introduced by the sample, mobile phase or system, which can negatively impact column lifetime, method sensitivity, quantitation and peak identification.
Pressure rated up to 20,000psi (1,378 bar), these guard cartridges have no significant impact on chromatography, backpressure or dead volume, according to the company.
Phenomenex offers an interactive web application where users can enter their column information to find the most appropriate Securityguard Ultra protection system, along with simple instructional videos on installation and use.
