Choosing an Optimal Co-Solvent for Method Development in Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) for the Whelk-O®1, RegisPack®, and RegisCell® Chiral Stationary Phases

December 01, 2015

Application Notes

33

12

The majority of the samples in this study and other studies show that a majority of compounds can be separated by the use of the three most common alcohols: IPA, CH3OH, and ethanol. Solubility becomes a crucial factor in preparative chromatography. Combinations of solvents can be used to improve solubility when the chosen co-solvent has poor solubility of the compound in question.

TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns are 2 µm SEC columns designed for the analysis of monoclonal antibodies and other biopharma products. Higher resolution can be achieved for the separation of antibody monomers, dimers, and higher order aggregates with a TSKgel UP-SW3000 column compared to a competitor UHPLC column. The TSKgel UP-SW3000 column provided excellent reproducibility for the peak parameters of retention time, asymmetry, and column efficiency. As demonstrated by the %RSD values, injection-to-injection reproducibility was superior to the competitor column.
