HPLC Analysis of Very Polar Compounds
Highly polar compounds — such as small molecule pharmaceuticals, metabolites, and biomarkers — can be challenging to separate using traditional reversed-phase separation methods. Several alternatives are available, including hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC), aqueous normal phase (ANP) chromatography, and HPLC using ion-exchange, polar-embedded, or polar-endcapped columns. So which option should you choose? Joseph Pesek of San José State University explains the mechanisms, advantages, and disadvantages of these approaches. More...
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.
