(Photo: Business Wire)"Today's scientists want more tools for improving the resolution, speed, selectivity, and sensitivity of their UPLC, UHPLC, and HPLC separations," said Doug McCabe, Director of Product Management - Consumables Group. "CORTECS Columns deliver the batch-to-batch reproducibility, robustness, and quality that customers have come to expect from Waters." When used with an ultra-low dispersion ACQUITY UPLC® instrument platform, the CORTECS UPLC 1.6 micron particle columns are designed to deliver approximately 40% greater increase in separations efficiency when compared to fully porous particles of an equivalent particle size. The highly-efficient CORTECS 2.7 micron particle columns are for use on both the ACQUITY Arc™ UHPLC system and the Waters Alliance® HPLC system and operate at lower backpressures allowing for the use of longer column lengths to improve resolution or shorten analysis times and increase throughput. The CORTECS T3 and CORTECS Shield RP18 chemistries compliment the currently available CORTECS C 18+, C 18, C 8, Phenyl, and HILIC chemistries. All CORTECS chemistries are fully scalable between the 1.6 micron and 2.7 micron particle sizes. The CORTECS T3 and CORTECS Shield RP18 chemistries are offered in 48 unique column configurations and are immediately available for shipping worldwide. It's All in the Chemistry With different particle characteristics and innovative charged surface modifications, CORTECS Columns are suitable for use in a wide variety of applications.
