- Easy scale-up from Restek analytical columns
- Popular bonded phases
Restek makes it easy to scale up your separations. We offer a wide range of semipreparative and preparative-scale columns packed with many of our popular Ultra, Allure, Pinnacle DB, and Viva bonded phases on a 5 μm spherical silica.
The Restek Aqueous C18 is a rugged, reversed-phase column with a well-balanced retention profile. It can effectively retain more types of solutes than a conventional C18 and is ideal for multicomponent LC-MS analyses. The general-purpose Aqueous C18 boasts high reproducibility and compatibility with many mobile phase conditions—even 100% aqueous. And when used with a gradient, it eliminates the all-too-common issue of multiple compounds eluting near the column void time.

Please note: We strongly recommend ordering a semi-prep or prep column only after evaluating the desired separation on an equivalent analytical-scale column. Because we cannot reuse a column or the silica it contains once it has left our facility, we cannot accept returns of large-scale columns.
