When paired with low-dispersion ACQUITY UPLC ® systems, CORTECS 1.6 micron Columns set a new standard in LC column performance when compared to sub 2-micron fully porous particles columns and other commercially-available sub 2-micron solid-core columns. The higher efficiency achieved with CORTECS Columns allows laboratories to produce greater amounts of information faster with every chromatographic separation.

“We are excited and proud that the experts at R&D Magazine recognized our CORTECS 1.6 micron Columns with this award,” said Mike Yelle, Vice President – Consumables Business Unit, Waters Division. “It is a testament to the hard work of our team of research scientists and engineers in creating advanced column technologies that address scientists' needs for greater resolution, speed and sensitivity.”

CORTECS Column particles feature a solid, impermeable silica core encased in a porous silica outer layer where the interactions between the stationary phase and the analytes occur. Waters CORTECS Applications Notebook describes dozens of applications for CORTECS columns, which are available in three basic chemistries. The CORTECS C 18 Column is a general-purpose, high-efficiency, reversed-phase column offering balanced retention of acids, bases, and neutrals at low and mid-range pH. The CORTECS C 18+ Column is a general-purpose, reversed-phase column with a positively charged surface that delivers excellent peak shape for basic compounds at low ionic strength acidic mobile phases. And the CORTECS HILIC Column, ideal for LC-MS analyses, is designed for the retention of extremely polar analytes and offers orthogonal selectivity versus C 18 columns. In an independent study published in the Journal of Separations Science, researchers at the University of Geneva determined CORTECS 1.6 micron columns to be the best performing sub two-micron solid core column, providing the best balance of permeability and efficiency. 1

The product of more than 40 years of bonding and surface technology know-how and over a decade of knowledge and expertise in sub-2-micron particle columns, Waters CORTECS 1.6 micron Columns deliver the full benefit of solid-core particle technology. Researchers have evaluated and documented that CORTECS UPLC Columns are an ideal balance of performance and practicality.
