Major Products/Services

NUCLEOSIL®, one of the first spherical silica gels in the 1970s, is still packed in stainless steel columns by MN. These columns with various C18 modifications are reliable workhorses and are validated in many drug testing methods. In recent years new highly pure and ultra-spherical HPLC and UHPLC silica gels followed. Today, the product range of totally porous NUCLEODUR® and fused-core NUCLEOSHELL® columns comprise more than 25 stationary phases, targeted to daily routine analysis as well as for method development in HPLC.
