Phenomenex Inc. has introduced the addition of a 5-micron particle to its Kinetex core-shell product line. As the largest diameter particle in the family, Kinetex 5-micron core-shell columns deliver better performance than 3- or 5-micron porous offerings, with no increase in backpressure. The 5-micron media provides 90% higher average efficiencies compared to the same size porous columns and little to no method development is required to achieve improved performance on standard HPLC systems.
The columns deliver increased resolution and higher efficiencies and extend the scalability and portability of the product line. With the current range of available particle sizes, including 1.3-, 1.7-, and 2.6-micron, the same method can be transferred from UHPLC and HPLC to preparative LC with Kinetex core-shell technology.
