Waters UPC2

Location: Biosciences Room 2009

The Waters UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography (UPC2) system is coupled with ultraviolet (UV) detection and QDa mass detector. The use of CO2 makes this a form of normal phase chromatography, however the addition of modifiers and additives make it possible to separate compounds of a wide range of polarities. Providing a great complimentary technique to our LC and GC chromatography.  

This system is good for: Separating analytes with broad range of physiochemical properties, particularly useful for polar analytes not easily retained in reverse phase chromatography.
