Recommended Use

For moderate throughput laboratories that need LC and entry level UHPLC capabilities and are investing in their first systems. As an LC/UHPLC starter kit this automated modular system can be extended with additional detectors, a more spacious column compartment, or even access to column switching techniques.

Typical application areas are teaching laboratories or quality control laboratories with moderate sample throughput requirements. The quaternary pump is recommended for methods deploying either conventional 3-5µm, or UHPLC sub-2µm particle columns where a moderately fast gradient response is acceptable for the benefit of increased mobile phase flexibility (i.e., multiple solvents, extended column wash, ternary or quaternary gradients). A four-channel solvent degasser is integrated in the pump module to simplify operation.

Important Capabilities/Features:

  • Up to 10 mL/min flow rate supporting up to 62 MPa (9000 psi/620 bar) backpressure for column format and column particle size flexibility
  • Fast and stable column thermostatting between 5°C above ambient and 50°C improves retention time precision. Compact and integrated autosampler column compartment to automate injections of multiple samples and calibration standards
  • Obtain near-zero dead volume for optimal peak shapes even over extended periods using Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ Viper™ Fingertight Fitting system
  • Get precise and accurate flow rates for stable retention times, robust peak integration, and confident identification from the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ SmartFlow™ technology
