Restek USLC - Choose Columns Fast, Develop Methods Faster
Selectivity is the most influential factor affecting peak separation, or resolution. Restek Ultra Selective Liquid Chromatography™ (USLC™) technology is the directed application of orthogonal selectivity to help the practicing chromatographer develop methods more efficiently and more effectively. The Restek USLC™ column set offers the widest range of selectivity in the industry using just 4 unique stationary phases—Aqueous C18, IBD, Biphenyl, and PFP Propyl—to simplify phase selection.

USLC™ Method Development Toolbox - All the Right Tools—All in One Toolbox

  • USLC™ method development toolbox contains all 4 USLC™ stationary phases in 1 convenient package.
  • Available for UHPLC (1.9 μm) and HPLC (3 or 5 μm) in 50, 100, or 150 mm lengths.
  • Included selection guide makes it even easier to pick the right column the first time.

ZORBAX RRHD 300SB-C3 and Diphenyl 1.8µm columns

  • Large pore (300Å) Rapid Resolution High Definition columns
  • Primarily used  for the separation of peptides and proteins, including monoclonal antibodies
  • For the analysis of protein structure

The ZORBAX RRHD 300SB-C3 is an excellent choice for current users of 3.5 μm and 5.0 μm ZORBAX 300SB-C3 columns who own UHPLC instruments and wish to reduce their analysis time or increase resolution or for those users of the ZORBAX RRHD 300SB-C18 and C8 columns who need the shorter alkyl chain, C3, for improved peak separations, peak shape and recovery, of larger proteins....click here for more information
