HPLC - HI-Plex Columns  
Small Molecule Separations
Agilent's Hi-Plex HPLC column provides reliable carbohydrate analysis with simple instrument requirements. Unlike Ion Chromatography columns, Hi-Plex columns use pure water or dilute acid on a standard HPLC, and do not require ion regeneration or suppressors. The media consists of robust a sulfonated polystyrene gel impregnated with various metal cations with different selectivities, as described in USP L17, L19, L34, and L58.
- Agilent's recommended column for accurate analysis of carbohydrates
- Operates on a standard HPLC and does not require specialized equipment
- Long column life and excellent batch-to-batch reproducibility
- Wide range of counterions and column configurations to optimize resolution
- Simple operating conditions: water or dilute acid, isocratic conditions, up to 30 % ACN as a modifier
- Available in 8 μm and 10 μm particle sizes in a range of choices for USP media types – L17, L19, L34 and L58
Columns separate via a ligand exchange mechanism. By varying the cation, various selectivities can be achieved. Elevated temperatures are required to prevent separation of anomers, which causes peak splitting.
