Benefits

Why trade in your current HPLC or UHPLC system?

You know the ins and outs of your lab’s workflow better than anyone else. More than likely, you have a running list of bottlenecks in your existing analytical workflow that you would like to work out. Perhaps you already know the way to accelerate your work is to upgrade to the latest technology or even switch vendors altogether. However, making that leap can seem like an enormous commitment. And yet, for every reason you may have to hang on to your current instruments, there is a list of reasons to trade up to the latest we have to offer. The following is just a glimpse of the benefits you can expect.

Purchase savings

Reduce the cost of a new system to improve your return on investment.

Efficiency gains

Upgrading your instrument can improve your laboratory efficiency and profitability.

Responsible disposal

We’ll remove your current system and recycle or dispose of it responsibly.

User-friendly operation

Vanquish HPLC and UHPLC systems are equipped with many features that simply make your daily work easier.

Why trade up to a Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC instrument?

Switching from your current LC system to a new platform needs to be warranted with proof that the investment will pay off over time. Discover some of the key benefits of trading up to a Thermo Scientific Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC system. We’re here to help. We will work with you to find the best HPLC or UHPLC solution for your needs as well as address the concerns you might have when adopting a new LC platform.

Reliability, ease-of-use and adherence to regulatory guidelines

The Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC platform with Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS) is packed with technology and features to ensure you are ready to be operational with the highest level of confidence in your data.

  • Automated system health checks and diagnostic tools – prevent system failure and downtime.
  • SmartInject technology reduces sample injection pressure drop, for less stress on the LC column and better retention time precision.
  • Long-life injection valves and tool-free Thermo Scientific Viper finger-tight fluidic line connections.
  • Intuitive ease-of-use driven from both hardware and software to streamline daily operations.
  • Seamless integration of mass spectrometers.
  • Automated auditing and security of your data to keep up with evolving standards and regulations.

Simplified method transfer to scale up quickly

Transferring methods between systems and labs can be a challenging and time-consuming task, but it shouldn’t keep you from upgrading to the latest scientific instrumentation. All of our Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC systems have built-in features that help to streamline and simplify method transfer.

These features include adjustable system gradient delay volume, multiple column heating modes and automated sample in-needle dilution, all of which are easily adjusted in the Chromeleon CDS software interface. This allows you to duplicate other HPLC or UHPLC vendor’s system settings enabling methods to be replicated more easily.

Versatility and flexibility

Our Vanquish LC platform has a modular system configuration with a variety of pumps that run up to 1500 bar as well as a wide selection of autosamplers and detectors. This modularity gives it the flexibility to accommodate all HPLC and UHPLC applications.

In addition, our Chromeleon CDS software allows for seamless control of all system components. Built-in safeguards, such as automated system health checks and troubleshooting videos, help reduce system downtime. It also includes features such as customizable injection programs that significantly improve the user experience.

Software integration with intuitive instrument software for easy control and data processing

Chromeleon CDS seamlessly controls all Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC systems as well as instrumentation from other vendors. This allows you to streamline your LC workflows through compliant and efficient control of your chromatography instruments and mass detectors, simplifying your informatics infrastructure with a single software.

If you are currently unable to change your CDS software, we offer software plugins that allow you to control selected Thermo Scientific chromatography instruments with another vendor's software, including:

  • Thermo Scientific Standard Instrument Integration (SII) for OpenLab software
  • Thermo Scientific Standard Instrument Integration (SII) for Empower software*
     

*Excludes Vanquish Core HPLC Systems

Sensitive detectors with seamless instrument integration

The Vanquish HPLC or UHPLC portfolio includes a variety of detectors that can be mixed and matched for complementary analysis. No matter which detector you choose, it can be seamlessly controlled with the rest of the system using Chromeleon CDS for easy data acquisition and processing.

Everything you need from one vendor – optimized parts, accessories and service

When you choose to purchase one of our instruments, you get the added benefit of a single vendor that can service all aspects of your laboratory’s needs, from easy ordering of all your LC columns and consumables online, to application support, to servicing your instrument.

Not only do we provide you with a wide range of products optimized to get the highest quality data from your HPLC or UHPLC system, you can also except a coordinated response to any issues that may arise and leverage the support of our global team of experts.
