Ultra-pure Silica-based C18
The YMC Pro Family is based on a silica with an extremely low metal content. Low metal content suppresses polar interactions, as metal impurities cause silanol groups to become more acidic. This ensures YMC Pro Family phases provide excellent resolution for a wide range of compounds, especially basic pharmaceuticals. To minimize the unwanted interactions between residual silanols and the sample molecules that are responsible for asymmetric peaks, YMC utilizes a proprietary, highly effective endcapping process. Important for every chromatographer: YMC ensures that the physical properties, such as particle size, pore size, and metal content, are extremely reproducible from lot to lot. YMC-Pack Pro C18 columns consist of highly purified silica gel, a high-coverage C18 bonding (16% carbon load), and a unique endcapping procedure utilizing Lewis acid/Lewis base chemistry.
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.
(No holder required)
