The Dimensionality of Separations: Mass Spectrometry Is Separation Science
In many cases, multidimensional chromatographic separations are interfaced with mass spectrometry (MS) detection to obtain high sensitivity and specificity. Then why is MS typically not considered as just another separation dimension? Kevin Schug discusses the power of MS for resolving an enormous number of compounds in a sample. More...
Special Maintenance Savings
You already know that an instrument failures waste time, sample, effort and money.  However, did you know that 60% of instrument failures are caused not by instrument malfunction, but by a lack of preventive maintenance?  Don’t risk your lab’s productivity.  Get factory recommended maintenance for your Agilent systems request a PM or PM/OQ quote and enjoy special limited time savings.

Application Note
Retain Hydrophobic & Hydrophilic Compounds in a "HILIC like" mode
J.E. Young, J.J. Pesek, and M.T. Matyska, MicroSolv Technology Corporation

One of the advantages of aqueous normal phase (ANP) chromatography is that both hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds can be retained and this note shows an example. Although cyclobenzaprine has a log P of approximately 4.6–4.9, it is retained with a symmetrical peak shape.

TSKgel STAT Columns
TSKgel STAT  ion exchange non-porous resin columns, including TSKgel Q-STAT, TSKgel DNA-STAT, TSKgel CM-STAT, and TSKgel SP-STAT, contain large particles (5, 7 and 10 μm). This relatively large particle size, combined with an innovative bonding chemistry, results in columns that enable fast equilibration and analysis of complex biomolecular samples, such as proteins, peptides, DNA fragments, nucleic acids, and nucleotides.
Visit our website to learn more about how TSKgel STAT columns can help your applications surpass the status quo today!
L-MARK Absolute vials from LEAP Pal Parts & Consumables are manufactured with a process that reportedly minimizes the free hydroxyl sites on the glass surface. According to the company, the vials allow measurements to be made with minimal effects of sample absorption and pH shifts, increasing the accuracy of the analysis.

Solving One of Chromatography’s Biggest Dilemma — Proper Sealing of Chromatography Autosamper Vials — Using the Advanced Vial Closure System (AVCS)
Thursday, June 6, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT.
This web seminar will review the impact an innovative vial & closure design, like AVCS, can have on improving data quality by providing data that supports how an AVCS-designed vial & closure eliminates under and over compression of vial seals while improving robotic autosampler pick-up of vials, ensuring more centered vial closure positioning and greater optical recognition of vials placed in autosamplers.
