The Keys to Understanding and Using HILIC
Hydrophilic-interaction chromatography (HILIC) can be an excellent alternative to reversed-phase liquid chromatography (LC) for the separation of polar compounds, and thus is particularly attractive to separation scientists working in the pharmaceutical field. This article, transcribed from an LCGC web seminar presented on January 29, 2013, by Davy Guillarme of the University of Geneva and the University of Lyon, explains how HILIC works and provides keys to using the technique effectively.  More...
Waters now offers both UPLC and HPLC, BEH-based columns for analyzing labeled, N-linked glycans from biotherapeutic proteins. Each columns is QC tested with the 2AB labeled Waters Glycan Performance Standard to ensure batch-to-batch reproducibility and highly similar separated glycan profiles. Consequently, chromatographers can now choose the most appropriate LC-based technology to address their specific released glycan analysis application needs and laboratory instrumentation.
