What's New
SRS Pro Solvent Recycling System

NEW Thermo Scientific SRS Pro Solvent Recycling System can reduce mobile phase consumption by up to 90%. This is achieved by continuously monitoring the output signal of the chromatographic detector, recycling the mobile phase to the solvent reservoir when the baseline is below a certain preset threshold.

Hypercarb Workshop at HPLC 2009


On Sunday 28 June 2009, immediately preceding HPLC 2009 in Dresden, we will be hosting a Hypercarb workshop at which key Industry and Academia speakers will be presenting how they use this unique stationary phase.

Increase Laboratory Productivity on the DFS with Dual Data Acquisition

Analysis of dioxins and furans (PCDD's/PCDF's) in accordance with EPA1613 or EN1948 takes a GC cycle time of some 45-60 minutes. During this cycle, only the time between the first and last eluting analyte compounds is of analytical interest, the rest is idle time. The Dual Data Acquisition option is a hardware modification based on a Dual GC-Single MS configuration. It enables alternating injection series into both GCs which allows both GCs to alternately show data between the first and last eluting analyte, leading to increase of the number of HRMS duty cycles and a subsequent increase in productivity.

One dual-GC single-MS system, equipped with the Dual Data Acquisition option, has a comparable sample throughput of two single GC-MS systems.

Comparison of Hypersil GOLD with Other Fast LC Columns

In our last edition, we introduced a new cartridge filter system to protect your Hypersil GOLD 1.9 um columns. This time, we report the results of a performance comparison of Hypersil GOLD 1.9 um and a number of other commercially available stationary phases.
