Syringe Filters

Filtering your samples before placing them in a vial for analysis will keep your system working well and extend column life time. You need to determine the correct membrane, material and pore size for your sample

Solid Phase Extraction (SPE)

Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) is the key method for sample preparation before HPLC analysis. It enables cleanup and concentration and is greatly.


You need to reduce undissolved particulates in your sample and analyse the supernatant. The use of a centridfuge is a good first step.

Heating and Stirring

For preparation of your samples and your mobile phases, a range or stirring and heating equipment is important.
