The Case for Upgrading Existing HPLC Assays to UPLC - Free Whitepaper
By: Eric Hill
UPLC, ultra pressure liquid chromatography, is the successor technology to HPLC techniques and assays that have been widely used since the 1970s. UPLC has emerged from the laboratory over the past few years and moved to the bench top. It offers similar analytic capabilities as the more familiar HPLC, but operates at much higher pressures. This increased, or ultra, pressure provides the advantages of improved resolution, shorter run times, fewer consumables, and similar advances to separation science and those who depend on it to analyze and characterize vital compounds.
