Supelco: Discovery

 

The Discovery range of reversed-phase columns, as well as including C18 phases, includes a number of complementary phases developed by combining a polar functionality with the standard alkyl/hydrophobic chain. Discovery columns are suitable for analysis in the areas of pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, environmental, clinical, agriculture, industrial chemicals and more.

  

The general features of the Discovery phases include:

  • Excellent peak shape and efficiency
  • Excellent reproducibility
  • Stable, low bleed LC-MS separations
  • Range of selectivity phases

  • Discovery HS PEG is a unique polyethylene glycol bonded phase specifically developed for pharmaceutical analysis and purification. Its unique selectivity enables faster separations of polar compounds, particularly phenolic compounds, compared to C18 columns.
  • Discovery RP-AmideC16 reversed phase displays unique selectivity, excellent retention and resolution for polar compounds, and lower hydrophobicity compared to C18. It is compatible with 100% aqueous mobile phases.

  • Discovery BIO Wide Pore phases are available for protein and peptide separations
