Sigma-Aldrich® Introduces Cost-Efficient, Monodisperse Porous Silica Titan(TM) Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) Columns
Press release date: December 3, 2013
ST. LOUIS – Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (NASDAQ: SIAL) today announced its Supelco® brand has released Titan UHPLC columns manufactured using the Company's new cost-efficient, patent-pending Ecoporous™ silica manufacturing process. Starting at a list price of $300, Titan columns contain the first sub-2 micrometer porous silica that is monodisperse and high-performance (>250,000 plates per meter), combining the advantages of solid-core and fully-porous particles.
"The Titan columns' reduction in the cost to perform UHPLC will not only improve the productivity of pharmaceutical and contract research organizations currently employing UHPLC for medicinal chemistry, toxicology, and clinical manufacturing, but will also extend the opportunity for budget-conscious academic labs focused on translational research to achieve industry-standard analytical performance and throughput," says Paul Ross, Director of Marketing and R&D, Analytical Separations at Sigma-Aldrich.
The Ecoporous manufacturing process emerged from a collaboration between Glantreo, a material science company based in Cork, Ireland, and Supelco. Supelco retains an exclusive license to this technology.
