Weighing launches

Ohaus Corporation's new Pro Series balances comprises three Adventurer Pro, Explorer Pro and Scout Pro

The benefits of using evaporative light scattering detection in HPLC

Evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) has become widely used in the field of HPLC. For non-UV absorbing compounds, ELSD is a primary choice since the principle of detection does not rely on the optical properties of the solute.

ICP-OES allows for sensitive analysis of organic samples

Dirk Ardelt, George Glavin, Sergej Leikin and Henk Visser look at the use of inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy and the potential difficulties in its use in analysing organic samples.

"Modular HPLC system offers flexibility, reliability and sensitivity"

Users of HPLC instrumentation require a vast array of features and working specifications to meet their application requirement.

Ultra-thin-layer chromatography plates
