Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New HyperSep Retain SPE Range for Faster Sample Preparation

Runcorn, UK, (February 6, 2008) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the launch of the Thermo Scientific HyperSep(TM) Retain(TM) Polymeric Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) range. Featuring unique functionalized polymer chemistry, HyperSep Retain products deliver high recovery levels and high reproducibility. HyperSep Retain SPE products provide sample preparation options for a wide range of applications and provide enhanced retention for a wide range of analyte types.

The Thermo Scientific HyperSep Retain range offers benefits over silica-based SPE offerings. Fast method development can be achieved and problems associated with material drying out after conditioning are eliminated. With the addition of the HyperSep Retain polymeric-based range, Thermo Fisher now offers scientists an array of products in varying formats and phases to meet the demands of their specific chromatography analysis by providing faster throughput in chromatography analysis, easier method development and enhanced selectivity in analysis.

HyperSep Retain is available in three chemistries: a polar-enhanced polymer material for balanced retention of polar and non-polar compounds; cation exchange for enhanced selectivity of basic compounds and anion exchange for enhanced selectivity of acidic compounds.
