ACQUITY PREMIER: Precision Chemistries for Particles and Surfaces
Kim Haynes, Waters Corporation

Abstract: LC-based analysis of metal sensitive analytes such as those containing phosphate groups and deprotonated carboxylic acids can be challenging due to their interactions with metal components within a chromatographic separation. These interactions can lead to missed analytes, quantification errors and wasted time. In this seminar, you will learn how ACQUTIY PREMIER Columns with MaxPeak High Performance Surfaces enables scientists to see compounds previously unseen, while improving sensitivity and reproducibility for all analytes. In addition, it will be shown how this technology can reduce the need for lengthy and repeated passivation.
