The i-Series Plus Integrated high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) offers exceptional versatility and user-friendliness to improve throughput in both R&D and QC environments. Models come equipped with an automatic pretreatment function. This new function enables operations such as automatic sample dilution, reagent addition, and sample co-injection with an internal standard. This ensures stable analytical results and allows analysis during off hours, leading to greater operational efficiency. In addition, the new system’s column oven enables high-temperature analysis with a maximum temperature setting of 90°F and offers increased column oven capacity, allowing users to store up to three 300-mm columns. Combined with ultrafast sample injections of <14 seconds and ultralow carryover, the i-Series Plus provides excellent analytical performance for applications in areas such as food and beverages, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.
