YMC-Pack ODS-AL uses not only hydrophobic interaction, but also secondary interactions caused by silanol groups that affect separation. This results in a different selectivity from conventional ODS columns. When ionic interaction is utilized, it is preferable to use a buffer in the mobile phase to achieve the best reproducibility.
YMC’s Guard Column Cartridge Systems for Semi-Prep HPLC utilize cartridges of 10, 20, or 30mm inner diameters – in 10mm lengths. Cartridges are available with a comprehensive selection including all stationary phase chemistries offered by YMC, ensuring compatibility between the guard column and the analytical column (including columns by other manufacturers). Assembly is tool-free, simplifying cartridge replacement.
YMC Guard Column Cartridges require the use of a holder, P/N: XPCHSPW1 for 10mm I.D., P/N: XPCHSPW2 for 20mm I.D. and P/N: XPCHSPW3 for 30mm I.D.
YMC’s semi-preparative & preparative Guard Columns for HPLC are available in 10mm diameter with 30mm length as well as 20mm, 30mm, and 50mm diameters with 50mm lengths. These guard columns are available with a comprehensive stationary phase selection offered by YMC, ensuring compatibility between the guard column and the semi-preparative or preparative column. Unlike our guard cartridge columns, these guard columns do not require a holder.
