ACQUITY BEH Shield RP18 columns complement the ACQUITY BEH C18 and C8 phases and provide a necessary and powerful tool for HPLC method development. The embedded carbamate group in the bonded phase ligand provides alternate selectivity, especially for phenolic compounds compared to straight chain alkyl columns.
Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) Technology works at higher efficiencies with a much wider range of linear velocities, flow rates, and backpressures. Higher flow rates and increased throughput result in superior resolution and sensitivity. UPLC substantially reduces time and cost-per-sample analysis, while improving the quality of decision making results. Waters’ ACQUITY UPLC Columns’ patented sub-2-μm hybrid particle chemistry enable chromatographers to harness the separation efficiency improvement s this separation technology delivers, thereby improving their business’ productivity and profitability. The ACQUITY UPLC Column family continues to evolve and expand with the addition of particles and stationary phases for the analyses of both small molecules as well as more complex biopharmaceuticals.
