Agilent's Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) system is the first choice for capillary electrophoresis offering benefits such as:
- HPLC-like reproducibility, sensitivity and linearity
- integrated software with graphical user interface
- pioneering new separation techniques, including capillary electrochromatography (CEC) and capillary electrophoresis mass spectrometry (CE/MS )
- extensive regulatory compliance tools
- world wide service and support
Superior detection - Diode-array detector specially designed for on-capillary detection. Agilent extended light-path capillaries extend detection limits with HPLC like sensitivity and linearity with the high sensitivity detection cell. Wide linear measurement range enables low level impurity analysis in a single run. Real-time spectral analysis for accelerated method development, with peak purity routines, compound identification and confirmation interactively using spectral libraries or in a single method for automated efficiencies.
Ease of use and versatility - Quick change, self aligning capillary cartridge exchanges in less than a minute. The cartridge is also compatible with other commercially available capillaries. Self-explanatory graphical user-interface for straightforward operation and reduced familiarization time. Single sample carousel, offering random vial access, ideal for method development, routine operation and fraction collection. A vial table serves as an intelligent notepad for the vial position.
Automated quantitative analysis - Full flexibility from random access to all vials, each fully sealed to prevent evaporation. Improved migration time reproducibility and high sample throughput with off-line buffer replenishment. Improved quantitative reproducibility with self-correcting pressure injection. Efficient capillary and sample temperature control for accurate quantitative analysis. The ChemStation for CE includes calibrations tables for Ferguson plots for SDS-protein and DNA or pl plots for capillary iso-electric focusing.
High pressure application - Only the Agilent CE can apply the high pressure (up to 12 bar) at both ends of the column, necessary to maintain column-stability in CEC. This high pressure gives the flexibility to apply maximum voltages and use conductive mobile phases without out-gassing which causes column breakdown. The high pressure is also useful for rapidly flushing the viscous buffer systems when making DNA or protein separations.
IQ, OQ/PV kits - These chemical test kits and validation packages provide everything you need to rigorously test and verify the performance of the Agilent CE instrument. They are designed to help you comply with regulatory and quality standards.
