Major Products/Services

Below is a sample of some HPLC column phases from Imtakt:

  • Dacapo DX-C18: 2.5 µm particle C18 column designed with a revolutionary dual matrix particle technology, optimized for extreme pH conditions.

  • Intrada Amino Acid: The world's first mixed-mode column designed to separate amino acids without the need for any derivatization.

  • Intrada SEC: Silica based SEC column designed for use in SEC-MS compatible conditions. GPC and GFC.

  • SCHERZO SM-C18: C18 multi-mode column with both anion and cation exchange.

  • PRESTO FF-C18: Consists of C18 bonded to monodispersed 2 µm non-porous silica. It is useful for both biopolymer and synthetic polymer separations. Ideal for intact antibody and ADC analysis.

  • CADENZA CD-C18: High resolution; 25–50% lower pressure; best with hydrophobic compounds, molecular recognition, and small molecule isomer separation.

  • Cadenza HS-C18: High resolution C18 column designed to accept direct injection of biological samples. No need to protein precipitate your samples for high throughput early drug discovery or clinical lab testing.

  • UNISON UK-AMINO: Revolutionary aqueous durability for aminopropyl phase; aqueous to non-aqueous normal phase separation.
