Over the last years, the use of Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) has significantly increased over conventional High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) due to the number of advantages that it offers. Thanks to the improvements that UHPLC offers in terms of analysis speed, sensitivity and resolution, the number of laboratories purchasing UHPLC units is increasing. These advantages are the result of significant improvements in the technology of those units (detectors, automated injectors, pumps, columns, etc.). To obtain the best performance from these UHPLC units, it is recommended that appropriate high purity solvents are used to avoid their interfering with analysis.
PanReac AppliChem now offers improved specifications of HPLC gradient quality acetonitrile, methanol and water so that they are adequate for use in UHPLC:
- Lower non-volatile matter content.
- Improved transparency at low wavelengths.
- Control of base line drift.
