High Performance Liquid Chromatography
February 01, 2007
HPLC is among the most dynamic markets in the laboratory analytical and life science instrument industry. The market can be segmented into six different categories, which include conventional HPLC, capillary/nano LC, fast LC, preparative HPLC, amino acid analyzers, and gel permeation chromatography systems. Conventional HPLC systems, which account for the majority of the market, are standard HPLC instruments with typical flow rates between 1–10 mL/min. However, other HPLC systems designed for specific applications and that remedy some of the shortcomings of conventional LC systems, are becoming more significant in the market.
