Barry Backpressure injures Theodore Thumb

HPLC sample preparations can wreak havoc on the poor thumbs of your staff. Without optimizing this - it is Theodore who suffers! 

Filtering dirty samples can often be very difficult and it can require a lot of effort from your thumb to push the sample through.  If you are filtering repeatedly this can cause pain and discomfort.  Follow the story to find out how you can avoid this.


Pedro’s Peaks ruined

Quality results are essential, especially in mass spectrometry. Air bubbles in the mobile phase, extractables in filter hardware, and particulates in your samples or solvents can cause ghost and tailing peaks and high baseline interference. With no sample prep optimization – it is Pedro who pays the price with his hair!

Air bubbles in the system can cause pressure issues and so can affect peak shape and analyse accuracy.  Correct removal of air is essential.  On top of this, when using Mass spec, leachables and extractables from plasticware can cause ghost peaks and mean that your results are unusable.  Find the right way to solve these problems by seeing what happens to The Unusual Suspects


Carolina gets blocked up

Column blockage can result in extremely high column replacement costs, as well as creating backpressure which in turn affects your results.

It isn’t difficult to block columns with particulate matter if your samples aren’t correctly filtered.  Particulates can affect your analyses and eventually cause column damage or blockage which results in system downtime and costly replacement.  Click below to solve this for good.
