Where Has My Efficiency Gone? Impacts of Extracolumn Peak Broadening on Performance, Part I: Basic Concepts

Dispersion of analyte zones outside of the column often compromises the quality of an LC separation—particularly in smaller columns with smaller particles. We explain basic concepts in extra-column dispersion from the point of view of an entire instrument.

Modern HPLC Pumps: Perspectives, Principles, and Practices

This instalment is the first of a series of four white papers on high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) modules (pump, autosampler, UV detector, and chromatography data system) to be published in 2019. This instalment provides an overview for analytical-scale HPLC pumps, including their requirements, modern designs, operating principles, trends, and best practices for trouble-free operation.
