Prep Columns

Broad range column dimensions

YMC has a proven history of direct scale-up from analytical and semi-prep columns to prep scale units. These are available in empty or YMC pre-packed columns. These are offered pre-packed in HPLC and now in certain LPLC (glass/acrylic) columns.

  • Standard column diameters: 50, 70, 100, 150, 200, 300 mm
  • Standard column length: 250, 300, 500, 1000 mm
  • Pressure resistant up to 2,000 psi (DAC columns)
  • Matching guard columns available

YMC-Pack preparative columns, packed with YMC*Gels, are available in a broad variety of column sizes to accommodate virtually any preparative separation. YMC uses a high-pressure slurry technique to pack all preparative columns in optional 1,000 or 2,000 psi pressure-rated hardware. Standard column dimensions range from 50 to 300 mm inner diameter and 250 to 1000 mm in length. Other column sizes will be available—please request a quote.

Preparative scale-up calculator

Let our scale-up calculator assist you in scaling up the chromatographic parameters such as flow rate or the amount of packing material. The use of the calculator is very simple: You only have to fill in the fields with the corresponding values and, after the parameters have been scaled up, you can also select the appropriate YMC (semi) preparative columns on our overview page. Benefit from the expertise of our scale-up calculator.


Application Search

Use our extensive Applications Search page to mine a dynamically growing collection of over 350 YMC-produced application notes.

The data can be searched by any combination of several variables, including sample classification, compound name (including partial names), and column parameters.
