Put that old workhorse out to pasture
Your old GC is a real workhorse and has provided acceptable results for a couple decades or more. But compared to the latest technology, the workhorse doesn’t run, it limps and causes loss in time, quality, productivity, and money. It’s time to think about replacing your old GC with the Agilent 7890A GC System Find out about the many advantages of the 7890A
New Antioxidant Compounds Identified
Scientists at the University of Granada (UGR) (Granada, Spain) have identified and characterized different antioxidant compounds from foods such as olive oil, honey, walnuts, and the medicinal herb, Teucrium polium.
Learn how autosampler vials can cause data errors
Your first thought might be “I think I need RSA Glass,” after learning how “common” auto-sampler vials can be the source of your sample problems and non-reproducing results. The presence of “silanols,” metals, and common contaminants found on the surface of borosilicate glass vials can absorb basic compounds and cause hysteresis with pH changes. RSA™ has virtually no silanols or metals and is contaminant free; eliminating common vial problems at the same cost as ordinary vials and caps. Read more

Achieving Improved Intact IgG Separations Using Aeris™ WIDEPORE Core-Shell HPLC | UHPLC Columns
Aeris WIDEPORE core-shell HPLC | UHPLC columns provide dramatic improvement in the separation of intact antibodies when compared to fully porous columns. The high permeability of the Aeris core-shell particle combined with low hydrophobicity and inert surface results in high recoveries and improved peak shape for even the most hydrophobic proteins.
