New Products: Chromatography Releases from Waters and Thermo Fisher


Waters this week introduced a number of new products for protein and glycan analysis, including its new Acquity UPLC CSH130 C18 columns, its XSelect HPLC CSH130 C18 columns, and three GlycoWorks kits for glycan labeling and sample prep.

The CSH130 columns are intended for peptide mapping and proteomics applications and feature Waters' Charged Surface Hybrid particle technology which allows the columns to be used with a weaker acid modifier to obtain greater resolving power and sensitivity in LC-MS, the company said.

The GlycoWorks kits include two prep kits – one for high throughput and one for single use – and a labeling kit for use with released glycans.

Thermo Fisher Scientific this week launched its Dionex Ultimate 3000 Biocompatible Rapid Separation system.

The system supports high resolution separations for R&D work along with high throughput QA/QC analyses on the same platform, at pressures up to 15,000 psi, the company said.
