New Products: Thermo Fisher, Protea

Premium

Thermo Fisher Scientific this week introduced its Dionex GlycanPac AXH-1 HPLC column for glycan analysis.

The column is compatible with fluorescent and mass spectrometry-based detection and combines weak anion exchange with hydrophobic interaction liquid chromatography to allow for separation of glycans by charge, polarity, and size, the company said.


Protea Biosciences this week launched its Amplus HPLC columns.

The columns offer wide porosity within a core shell particle design, making them well suited to the analysis of intact proteins and large peptides, the company said.
