High Purity, High Sample Recovery
The high-purity silica found in YMC-Pack SIL columns provides virtually complete sample recovery. The absence of silica impurities reduces non-specific sample adsorption, which lowers sample recovery and may cause unusual peak shapes.
High Sample Loading, High Mechanical Stability
The totally porous nature of the silica found in YMC-Pack SIL columns provides high sample loading. With some competitive silicas, the level of porosity would make the particles prone to fracture, resulting in fines and high backpressure. However, the high chemical purity of YMC silica results in a particle structure exhibiting high mechanical strength.
YMC’s Guard Column Cartridge Systems for HPLC accept cartridges of 1.0, 2.1, 3.0, or 4.0mm inner diameters – in either 10mm or 20mm 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. Assembly is tool-free, simplifying cartridge replacement.
YMC Guard Column Cartridges require the use of a holder, P/N: XPGCHP1 for 10mm length and P/N: XPGCHP2 for 20mm length.

YMC’s Guard Columns for HPLC are available in 4.0mm and 5.0mm diameters and come in 10mm lengths. These guard columns are available with a comprehensive stationary phase selection offered by YMC, ensuring compatibility between the guard column and the analytical column. Unlike our guard cartridge columns, these guard columns do not require a holder, but do require a small jumper made from either stainless steel or PEEK tubing in order to connect them to the inlet of the analytical column.
No holder required
