Achieve shorter run times when separating simple sugars in food/beverage, pharmaceutical, and biofuel samples using Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ CarboPac™ PA20-Fast-4µm columns. Compared to standard Dionex CarboPac PA20 columns, the new Dionex CarboPac PA20-Fast-4µm columns use smaller resin particles that produce more efficient peaks, resulting in more accurate integration and more reliable results. The smaller resin particles combined with reduced column length provide approximately 50% shorter runtimes than standard Dionex CarboPac PA20 columns without sacrificing performance.
Higher resolution is achieved through the use of smaller resin particles which produce a column backpressure over 3000 psi at standard flow rates. High-Pressure IC (HPIC™) systems, such as the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ICS-5000+ HPIC™ or Dionex™ Integrion™ HPIC™ system, are required to operate this column under standard conditions. Use with pulsed amperometric detection (PAD) for direct quantification of non-derivatized carbohydrates with minimal sample preparation.
