Torrance, CA (March 14, 2013) - Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces the publication of a guide to chiral column selection. Available in print and digital format, the 24-page guide is designed to help researchers quickly find the right column and method for their chiral compound, backed by a 45-day money-back guarantee on the recommended column. Over 250 applications are listed in the guide, indexed by functional groups. In addition to the new guide, researchers can find methods using the Phenomenex online Structure Search tool or by submitting their samples to the PhenoLogix chiral team, who will screen compounds at no charge, providing a method and column recommendation. Requests for the chiral column selection guide can be made online at: http://www.phenomenex.com/chiralguide.
"Chiral HPLC column selection is very challenging and typically involves a lot of trial and error," explained Michael Klein, chiral brand manager for Phenomenex. "Our new guide promises to help researchers pick the right column, the first time and every time, risk-free. Customers can use the guide, the online tools, or go straight to the free Chiral Screening Service, depending on the complexity of their challenge and their time constraints."
The Phenomenex chiral advantage is built around the company's polysaccharide-based Lux® media, which is available in five unique chiral stationary phases and has been demonstrated to resolve over 92 percent of enantiomers. Lux is available in particle sizes of 3-micron and 5-micron for packed columns (analytical, semi-preparative and Axia-packed preparative) as well as 10-micron and 20-micron bulk media for scale-up.
Phenomenex is a global technology leader committed to developing novel analytical chemistry solutions that solve the separation and purification challenges of researchers in industrial, clinical research, government and academic laboratories. From drug discovery and pharmaceutical development to food safety and environmental analysis, Phenomenex chromatography solutions accelerate science and help researchers improve global health and well-being.
