Phenomenex Clarity LC Columns for Synthetic Oligo Analysis

Phenomenex has launched two new products for characterization and purification of synthetic oligonucleotides, the Clarity Oligo-XT C18 column and the Clarity Oligo-SAX column.

The products will be offered as part of the firm's Clarity BioSolutions portfolio of columns for chromatographic analysis.

The Oligo-XT C18 column is intended for high-efficiency reversed-phase liquid chromatography analysis and purification. Featuring new and robust core-shell media, it offers the separation power to resolve closely related synthetic oligos and the sensitivity to improve quantitation by mass spectrometry. The columns are available in directly scalable 1.7-micrometer, 2.5-micrometer, and 5-micrometer particle sizes. 

The Oligo-SAX is a high-resolution strong anion exchanger for characterization, featuring new rugged non-porous particles for improved column lifetimes. It is engineered for performance at high pH and temperatures up to 85° C. It comes in a 5-micrometer particle size for analytical characterization.
