Technology Forum

Chiral Technology Forum
Experts from industry and academia weigh in on new chiral selective phases, choosing between chiral purification versus chiral-specific synthesis, and the use of SFC for chiral analysis.
Kromasil HILIC-D
Kromasil HILIC-D is designed for the best selectivity of polar compounds like organic acids, nucleobases, and water soluble vitamins. You may expect the opposite elution order and a different selectivity compared to a standard C18 in reversed phase mode. The phase is low bleed and solvents used when running in HILIC mode are fully compatible for MS detection. For more info and a special offer visit

Waters And Fera Focus On Food Safety
Waters (Milford, Massachusetts) and the Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) (York, UK) have announced that they will open a new laboratory-based training facility which will combine their respective regulatory, scientific, and industry expertise to help solve the global food safety challenge.
New LC Purification solution
How much can you purify with a lab-scale LC system? Mining and enrichment in discovery are demanding tasks. Isolating product-related impurities or developing efficient purification processes can also be very laborious. Our new lab-scale gradient-capable purification solution ContiChrom™ can ease the pain. It supports up-scaling from batch to continuous LC, allowing 50% higher yields and purity and up to 10 times more throughput. Learn more.
Frisvad Receives Thought Leader Award
Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, California) has announced the recipient of its latest Thought Leader award: Dr. Jens Frisvad from the Center for Microbial Biotechnology in the department of systems biology at the Technical University of Denmark.
All the Right Tools—All in One Box
Restek’s USLC™ column set represents an incredible range of selectivity with just 4 stationary phases—and the new USLC™ toolbox contains all 4 phases in 1 convenient package! This must-have companion for method developers also includes a guide to help ensure you always choose the right column the first time. To learn more or order, visit

VICI's New Catalog
VICI Valco Instruments Co Inc introduces its new general catalog #65. The VICI catalog has been called “the bible of chromatography”. Its first catalog since 2009, the VICI family presents the latest product developments as well as the full line of Valco and Cheminert® GC, LC, HPLC, and UHPLC valves, fittings, and accessories, as well as Metronics calibration devices and Precision Sampling products. There is even a glossary and handy reference section. Ask for yours today
Bruker Opens Russian Center of Excellence
Bruker (Billerica, Massachusetts) has opened a new applications and customer support center of excellence in Moscow, Russia. The facility will provide access to a range of scientific instruments for life science and analytical applications using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray analysis, mass spectrometry, chromatography, molecular spectroscopy, and AFM microscopy.
Thermo Scientific is now sponsoring CHROMacademy’s HPLC Troubleshooter. Choose from over 50 instrument and chromatographic problems!. Read more.
Market Profile

Market Profile: Continuous Flow Analysis and Discrete Analyzers
The continuous flow analysis (CFA) technique of segmented flow analysis uses turbulent flow conditions that allow for complete sample dispersion. In contrast to CFA, discrete analyzers keep samples separate throughout the testing process, dispensing precise amounts when required.

EASY-Spray columns bring even more ease-of-use to performance
Thermo Scientific EASY-Spray is an integrated, "plug-and-spray" device, supported by column lengths up to 50 cm, that further unifies ease-of-use and performance in nano LC. EASY-Spray™ columns provide a fully integrated and temperature controlled column-emitter design with only a single Thermo Scientific Dionex nanoViper connection between the LC and the MS, and are available in several column diameters and lengths to support the most demanding separations. Read more.
Multi-Angle Light Scattering Detector
Based on Wyatt Technology’s family of multi-angle light scattering detectors, the new DAWN HELEOS-II has 18-angles of detection for the greatest sensitivity for absolute molecular weight and size determinations of polymers and biopolymers in solution. It may be connected in series to any chromatographic system in order to determine absolute molar masses without the use of reference standards or column calibration. Read more.

EDITORS' SERIES: A Roadmap for Rapid HPLC Method Development: A Practical Three-Pronged Approach
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
HPLC method development is a challenging task, requiring the ability to optimize a large number of dependent and independent variables for complex samples. The traditional method development approach, while well accepted, is difficult to implement in practice, particularly for those with little experience. In this seminar, we describe the concept of a practical, three-pronged approach for rapid method development.
Elimination of the Detrimental Effects of Phospholipids through Sample Preparation
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
11:00 AM EDT
This webinar will discuss new solutions to quickly and effectively clean up biological samples before LC–MS analysis. The focus will be on phospholipids and the associated challenges phospholipids present with chromatography and analyte detection.
