JUNE 20, 2016
Bohus, Sweden: Kromasil, AkzoNobel’s global brand for chromatographic analysis and purification, will use the upcoming HPLC symposium in San Francisco to launch its new Kromasil EternityShell columns with 2.5 µm solid-core particles.
The new columns feature stationary phase based on solid-core particle technology with C18 derivatization and compatibility across an expanded pH range with excellent chemical stability. These new columns are an important addition to the already vast reversed-phase chromatogarphy offerings available under the Kromasil umbrella.
The Separation Products division will be an exhibitor at HPLC 2016, with its stand at Booth 300 at the Marriott Marquis hotel in San Francisco. The Kromasil display will star the new EternityShell C18 columns, alongside the recently introduced ClassicShell 2.5µm particle columns, also based on solid-core stationary phase technology that were introduced at Pittcon 2016.
The new columns can be used in either UHPLC or HPLC mode, providing further flexibility for scientists running analytical chromatography.
“Of course the HPLC Symposium is a favorite event for us. We are present every year to bring our latest technologies to our key user base of researchers and analysts,” said Ms. Mazza.
“We have truly expanded our portfolio of small particles columns in the last years and what is new for this year is solid-core particle based UHPLC/HPLC columns. We have first launched Kromasil ClassicShell and now we are bringing to the market Kromasil EternityShell columns. Recently we have also brought to market supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) columns, which are a promising technology for small molecules and peptide separation, and the Kromasil Chiral platform for enantiomeric separations” she added.
Expanded pH range
“This year, we will also be contributing a poster to the symposium on the new technologies supporting fully porous based stationary phases with Kromasil EternityXT, which just like with the new EternityShell solid core particle columns are ideal for even harsh conditions including high pH, giving bench analysts and researchers more toolbox choices,” said Mazza.
Kromasil will also be exhibiting at the upcoming CPhI China show in Shanghai.
The Kromasil® product line hails from the Swedish-based Separation Products group of AkzoNobel Pulp and Performance Chemicals, one of the world’s leading providers of specialty chemicals.
Kromasil products are fully back integrated and, for over more than 25 years, Kromasil columns as well as the bulk materials have greatly improved the effectiveness of UHPLC, HPLC and SFC.
Kromasil packings and columns have been used over the years for demanding chromatographic separations all over the world ranging from small synthetic pharmaceuticals, to peptides and larger size molecules. Popular applications include chromatographic analysis basic compounds and aromatics, determination of peptides and oligonucleotides, insulin and analogs, UHPLC separations for drugs and natural products, HPLC analysis of pesticides, and identification of chiral compounds.
About HPLC 2016
The 44th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2016) is a five day conference opening June 19 at the Marriot San Francisco Marquis Hotel in San Francisco, CA.
First staged in 1973 at Interlaken, Switzerland, the HPLC series has established itself as one of the leading conference in analytical chemistry, focusing on the field of separation sciences and related topics. The emphasis of the meeting will on fundamental aspects of separations sciences, sample preparation, novel developments and applications as well as hyphenation with mass spectrometry.
Annual meetings alternate between Europe and the USA (even numbered years) with additional meetings held in Asia since 2008.
The symposium also features a large exhibition for companies active in the field.
The 2016 conference is expected to attract some 20,000 visitors, representing more than 140 nations.
