Thermo Scientific Pierce Heptafluorobutyric Acid (HFBA), HPLC Grade is manufactured and tested to meet strict specifications that ensure superior performance for use as an ion-pairing agent in reverse-phase peptide separations.

Features of Heptafluorobutyric Acid (HFBA), HPLC Grade:

Greater than 99.5% purity—allows sensitive, nondestructive peptide detection at low UV wavelengths in reverse-phase HPLC protein and peptide separation systems
High-performance packaging—HFBA packaged under nitrogen in amber glass ampules or bottles
Economical convenience—in just a few seconds, a 1 mL ampule can be used to prepare 1 liter of fresh 0.1% heptafluorobutyric acid solution for the mobile phase in reverse-phase chromatography

• Ion pair reagent for reverse-phase HPLC
• Protein/peptide sequencing
• Protein/peptide solubilizing agent
• Solid-phase peptide synthesis
• Amino acid analysis

Pierce HFBA is manufactured to the highest specifications to ensure the integrity of your data, maximize sensitivity in your assay and to prolong the life of your equipment. The solution is tested for overall purity, chain-length purity, water content, sulfate content and absorptivity at three different UV-wavelengths. The liquid reagent is offered in convenient 1 mL ampules and 100 mL bottles.

For added safety when opening glass ampules, consider using our Ampule Breakers, which are disposable safety devices that protect the fingers when breaking open a glass ampule.
