COSMOCORE C18 Core-shell columns

Nacalai Tesque have recently introduced COSMOCORE C18, a 2.6um core-shell phase with a solid core of 1.6um and a shell of 0.5um. COSMOCORE 2.6C18 enables ultra high performance LC analyses with conventional HPLC equipment. Columns can produce the same efficiency as sub-2um columns, but operate at less than half the pressure. They show excellent stability over the pH range of 1.5 to 10. Nacalai Tesque claim that COSMOCORE C18 features high retention compared to other core-shell columns. In addition, the phase exhibits high loading capacity, a benefit when analysing trace components. Columns with i.d.s of 2.1, 3.0 and 4.6mm are currently available. An 8-page product brochure is available.
