Agilent, 1290 UPLC

About this technique

Ultra-high Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) is a method of separating compounds in a mixture through a packed column. UPLC uses higher pressures and smaller i.d. tubing than HPLC to provide enhanced separation with shorter acquisition times. As compounds elute they can be passed through a detector that can provide more information about the compound.

This instrument has two detectors;

  1. A Diode Array Detector (DAD) which scans across a range of wavelengths to measure the absorbance of the compounds as they elute from the column. Up to five wavelengths can be selected for automatic reporting, while a range between 190 – 640 nm can be stored for further information.
  2. A mass spectrometer (MS) can be connected for LC-MS analyses, measuring the mass-to-charge ratio of compounds eluting from the column, in positive and/or negative polarity.


About this instrument

The Agilent 1290 Infinity Quaternary LC System provides highest accuracy and precision combined with the flexibility of a quaternary system. The 1290 power range and the Intelligent System Emulation Technology (ISET) give you the possibility to develop run high-end UHPLC methods and still run your established legacy HPLC methods on the same system. The BlendAssist feature in the software offers a comfortable, precise and accurate way of buffer/additive blending, saving time and money in your daily lab routine. Equipped with the 1290 Infinity Diode Array Detector and the next-generation 1290 Infinity Autosampler, you will achieve highest sensitivity at lowest carry-over and highest precision.
