Product Product  HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography)

Waters Corporation has announced a major addition to the company's successful SunFire brand of silica-based HPLC chemistries, the SunFire C8 Analytical Columns. The introduction of the new reversed-phase C8 bonded-silica columns sets a new performance standard in silica-based HPLC technology. Waters SunFire columns provide:

" outstanding peak shape for improved sensitivity, resolution and quantitation
" low pH stability for improved column lifetime, ultra-low MS bleed and enhanced selectivity which reduces laboratory costs while making method development simpler, faster and more compatible with MS detection

The combination of superior mass loading and Waters unique patent-pending Optimum Bed Density (OBD™) preparative design ensures equivalent chromatographic performance from analytical to preparative dimensions, eliminating the need for any subsequent time-consuming method redevelopment.

"First introduced at HPLC 2004, the SunFire brand is gaining wide customer acceptance as scientists perform side-by-side comparisons against all leading competitive silica-based HPLC columns," said Steve Collier, SunFire Product Marketing Manager. "Today's announcement continues that momentum of providing solutions unmatched in performance and scalability."

SunFire columns are available in 3.5, 5, and 10-micron spherical particles in various lengths and internal diameters, and can be purchased today either online or through a Waters sales representative. For more information or to download the latest brochure (Catalog #720000875EN), please visit
