To Upgrade or not to Upgrade?

Nowhere is the controversy over instrument upgrades more animated than in HPLC, or more correctly, in the debate over switching from HPLC to UHPLC.

Laboratory Technology

The Right Choice for UHPLC Systems

UHPLC – ultra high performance liquid chromatography – systems have been around since 2003 and continue to grow. These systems, while having better performance than traditional HPLC, have more limited surface chemistries than HPLC.
