Genuine Ultrasphere HPLC columns from the manufacturer  

 

Hichrom Limited acquired the complete Ultrasphere HPLC column consumable product line from Beckman Coulter in 2010. Following the acquisition, Hichrom continues to manufacture the full range of genuine columns and media to the same exacting manufacturing protocols and specifications.

 

Although Ultrasphere products are no longer available from Beckman Coulter, the genuine products are still available from the manufacturer Hichrom Limited and Hichrom’s authorised global distributor network. Please contact Hichrom to confirm your authorised local distributor.

Ultrasphere phases:

  • Genuine Ultrasphere products
  • 3um and 5um spherical porous silica
  • High reproducibility, narrow particle size distribution
  • Wide range of column dimensions
  • Widely referenced silica

Ultrasphere was one of the earliest commercially available spherical silicas. Ultrasphere columns remain widely referenced within both industry and academia and are recognised to provide excellent chromatographic performance. Five phases (C18, C8, CN, Si and IP) and two particle sizes (3um and 5um) are available.

 

Wide range of column dimensions

Ultraspehere columns are available in a wide range of dimensions, including microbore (2.0mm id), analytical (4.6mm id) and semi-preparative (10mm i.d.). Please contact Hichrom to request availability of any column dimension not listed.

Ultrasphere-XL High Speed  cartridge columns

Ultrasphere 3um phases are available in both standard analytical column hardware and a high efficiency Ultrasphere-XL High Speed Cartridge Column design, which includes an integral cartridge column holder assembly (purchased separately). This holder assembly directly connects a guard cartridge to the cartridge column, minimising the dead volume between the two and resulting in high efficiency columns.
