Ultra-High Resolution Chromatography Using 500 mm UHPLC Columns for Detection Of Hidden Sample Components

April 19, 2012

LC method development for new drug candidates or screening methods for new active structures in botanicals present the same type of challenges: How do I know that I have separated all main components, as well as important, sometimes hidden, impurities? Is my resolution good enough? Am I missing small, co-eluting peaks?
