Phenomenex Adds Two New Phases to Chiral Column Line
July 26th, 2010
Phenomenex introduces two new polysaccharide-based Lux® Columns for HPLC/SFC chiral separations. This brings the company’s total to five unique Lux phases, which together form a set with a wide range of selectivity to resolve 92 percent of enantiomers. The new Lux Cellulose-4 is a novel cellulose tris (4-chloro-3-methylephenylcarbamate) phase and the Lux Cellulose-3 uses cellulose tris (4-methylbenzoate) as the selector.
Lux columns are offered in 3µm and 5µm particle sizes, packed for analytical-scale use or AXIA™-packed for preparative applications. 20 µm bulk media is also available up to the kilogram scale. Both new columns deliver high efficiency and loading capacity and are pressure-stable up to 300 bar.
Phenomenex also offers HPLC and SFC chiral screening and separation services. After resolving the chiral compound, Phenomenex provides a report detailing the optimal phase and method conditions to the service customer.
