Press Release Summary:
PL-ELS 1000Âµ microbore evaporative light scattering detector provides baseline stability for HPLC separations requiring gradient elution. Detector operates with eluent flow rates from 1 to 500 Âµl/min, detects all non-volatile solutes, and does not require UV chromophore. It can be used as standalone detector for separations using capillaries down to 300 Âµm ID, or can be used as split flow concentration detector in conjunction with LC-MS systems.
Original Press Release:
A New Evaporative Light Scattering Detector for Capillary/Micro HPLC
The continuing trend towards micro and capillary HPLC has hastened the development of a specialist detector for such separations.
Polymer Laboratories has launched a new microbore evaporative light scattering (ELS) detector, the PL-ELS 1000u, which has been specifically designed for optimized performance in microbore and capillary HPLC applications. The PL-ELS 1000u provides unrivalled baseline stability for HPLC separations requiring gradient elution. The detector operates with eluent flow rates from 1ul/min to 500ul/min. The PL-ELS 1000u detector can detect all non-volatile solutes, there is no dependence on a UV chromophore, and it is designed for minimal band broadening. The use of microbore and now capillary columns permit lower detection limits compared to conventional HPLC columns, which, coupled with the increased sensitivity of the PL-ELS 1000u, provides a system capable of significant reductions in solute limits of detection. This new ELS detector is ideal as a standalone detector for separations using capillaries down to 300um ID, and/or can be used as a split flow concentration detector in conjunction with LC-MS systems. Polymer Laboratories are exhibiting at PittCon 2002 on booth number 1767
