Successful UHPLC: Build on the Basics

Many chromatographic problems that show up as leaks, peak broadening, dispersion, or sample loss could originate from multiple causes—some very simple, some very expensive. Before you change out expensive columns or replace your mobile phase, check out these basic, yet little-known suggestions to achieve a secure flow path. Laura Bush, Editorial Director of LCGC and John Batts, Senior Technical Specialist with IDEX Health & Science discuss problems and solutions related to fittings, tubing, and valves for UHPLC.


Successful HPLC: Build on the Basics

Dynamic, Low-Flow, Post-Column Mixing before Mass Spec Analyses

Although best practices for LC and MS advise against breaking the accepted rules of fluidics post-LC, Darren Lewis of IDEX Health & Science and David Schriemer of the University of Calgary not only break the rules, but demonstrate when it can be helpful. In a lively roundtable discussion with Bob McCarthy of the Integrated Solutions Group at IDEX Health & Science the team reviews a joint collaboration that resulted in the development of an innovative fluidic module.

Maximize Your UHPLC Capability by Minimizing Extra Volume

Outside column volume or dead volume is becoming more and more critical due to the advances in Liquid Chromatography and column technology. Often overlooked, connections can be a significant source of peak tailing, peak broadening, and lower plate count. In our Webinar, you will discover how to make a perfect connection that minimizes extra volume every time — even while operating at ultra-high pressures of up to 19,000 psi (1,300 bar).

IVD Webinar Series: Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

IDEX Health & Science has launched a new webinar series design especially for engineers involved with high-precision fluidic handling. Subjects will include system optimization, pumps, connections, degassing and debubbling liquids and valves. As these webinars are created, we'll post them here for viewing.


Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

Part One: System Optimization

Part one of this five part series covers Fluidic System Optimization for IVD applications.

Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

Part Two: Connections for IVD

Part two of this five part series surveys Connection Strategies for IVD — manifolds, fittings, and tubing — including sizing parameters and how to decide which approach or combination works best for an application.

Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

Part Three: Pumps for IVD

Part three of this five part series evaluates pump technologies commonly used in IVD and discusses the selection criteria for three common fluidic types: high precision dispensing, metering & dispensing, and bulk fluid transfer.

Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

Part Four: Degassing & Debubbling for IVD

Part four of this five part series examines cost effective approaches for improving small volume dispensing and increasing detection sensitivity by degassing and/or debubbling system liquids.

Optimizing Fluidics for IVD

Part Five: Valves for IVD

Part five of this five part series reviews the major valve types — rotary, solenoid-operated, and check valves — and discusses how each technology potentiates fluidic subsystems for sample or reagent dispensing, water supply, washing, or waste removal.
