What is considered to be Low-Pressure Mixing?

Low-pressure mixing only occurs with sophisticated pumps that are capable of precise proportioning from multiple solvent reservoirs. Here, the pump uses special electronic valves to obtain solvent from multiple reservoirs. This valve performs its proportioning prior to solvent entering a liquid end, thus being on the low-pressure side. This term usually applies to gradient methods, but may also apply to more sophisticated isocratic analyses.
