Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, California) and Aurora SFC Systems (Sunnyvale, California) announced that Agilent is providing technical support for the development of Aurora’s SFC Fusion A5, a new instrument that converts existing high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) systems into supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) systems. The instrument supports Agilent’s model 1100 and 1200 LC systems and the model 1200 RRLC system. According to Agilent senior marketing director Stefan Schuette, the pharmaceutical industry is increasingly interested in SFC as a technical option, and the new instrument enables the LC system to be operated in either SFC or HPLC operating modes.
