SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 2, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the launch of a series of new Agilent J&W gas chromatography columns designed for environmental and pharmaceutical applications. The new additions expand the Agilent J&W family of columns, three of which are ultra inert GC solutions.
The new Agilent J&W GC column series includes the following:
• Agilent J&W DB-UI 8270D Ultra Inert GC columns
• Agilent J&W DB-624UI Ultra Inert GC columns
• Agilent J&W DB-Select 624UI <467> GC columns
• Agilent J&W DB-CLP1 & DB-CLP2 GC columns
“Agilent J&W GC columns offer the lowest bleed levels, the best inertness for acids/bases/mixed-function compounds, and the tightest column-to-column reproducibility,” said Anne Jones, general manager, Agilent Chemistries Division. “Every Agilent J&W Ultra Inert GC column is tested with the most demanding ultra inert test-probe mixture in the industry, and an individual performance summary sheet is shipped with each column.”
Agilent J&W DB-UI 8270D Ultra Inert GC columns deliver excellent peak-shape performance for active semivolatile organic compounds targeted by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Method 8270D, so researchers can perform the most challenging environmental trace-level analyses with the utmost confidence. Convenient, economical multipacks are available for high-throughput labs in the United States.
Agilent J&W DB-624UI Ultra Inert GC columns are optimized for fast analysis of volatile compounds, and are ideal for environmental and chemical samples with unknown components. They deliver the highest degree of column inertness for improved peak shape and linearity for the environmental industry.
Agilent J&W DB-Select 624UI <467> GC columns, engineered for analysis of residual solvents in pharmaceutical products, offer the best sensitivity and resolution for the critical pairs specified in U.S. Pharmacopeial Method <467>.
Agilent J&W DB-CLP1 and DB-CLP2 GC columns detect Contract Laboratory Program target pesticides, including organohalides, with optimal resolution and exceptional low bleed. The DB-CLP columns are ideal not just for EPA methods that specify electron capture detection but for all CLP target pesticide methods. Both columns offer excellent resolving power, which simplifies lab operations and increases productivity. They cover nine EPA methods. That’s more than any other CLP column pair.
