New Products: Agilent, Thermo Fisher Scientific


Agilent this week introduced its AdvanceBio Peptide Mapping BioHPLC and ZORBAX RRHD 300-HILIC columns for the analysis of proteins, monoclonal antibodies, peptides and additional biologics.

According to the company, the columns allow for peptide mapping at two to three times the speed of conventional fully porous HPLC columns.

Thermo Fisher Scientific said this week that a number of its chromatography systems are now compatible with Waters' Empower Chromatography Data Software.

The compatible equipment includes the company's Dionex ICS-900, ICS-1100, and ICS-1600 systems as well as the Dionex ERC 10 Eluent Regeneration Controller, the Dionex UltiMate 3000 rapid separation thermostatted open autosampler, the UltiMate 3000 quaternary rapid separation pump with extended pressure range, and the Dionex Corona ultra RS charged aerosol detector.
