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.
Guard columns are recommended for challenging matrices or for use as trapping columns. YMC capillary guard columns are connected directly to the analytical column using the supplied column coupler.
A column coupler is supplied with every pack of YMC capillary guard cartridges to guarantee an optimum connection with low dead volume. A polymer-based (PCTFE) coupler is provided for 1/16” columns, while a stainless steel coupler is provided for 1/32” columns. Additional couplers can be purchased separately if required.
Columns, Guards and Accessories are only available for purchase online in North America or through our distributors.
To purchase consumables outside North America, please find your local distributor.
