Going for Greener LC–MS
A look at the role of micro-LC–MS to reduce the environmental impact of chromatography laboratories.
Automated Direct to Vial Concentration and Evaporation is now available in many formats.
The new FMS SuperVap family are standalone automated waterless concentration/evaporation systems and are available in many vessel sizes 250ml, 60ml, 50ml, 40ml, 20ml, 2ml and 4ml to meet all of the laboratories needs. The SuperVap replaces older techniques and instruments such as KD, nitrogen blow down, water baths, rotary evaporators and automate existing manual evaporation/concentration processes by concentrating directly into a vial for final analysis. The concentration process is performed automatically and unattended producing excellent precision and recoveries in minutes. The SuperVap Automated Concentration System is built by design to simplify, improve and increase your productivity, lowering your labor costs and reduces errors. Click here for more information

Designed for long life.
How old can a HPLC column get? It’s natural to think it depends on how wide the pH variations are or how high the temperature gets. But even under such tough conditions, Kromasil Eternity, with its organic/inorganic interfacial gradient covering the silica matrix, lives longer than other silica based columns.
Check our website for current availability of phases and column sizes of Kromasil Eternity.
