As a scientist, getting reliable, accurate, and consistent data from your HPLC instrumentation is critical. Unreliable HPLC data means wasted time and effort on your part.
It has been estimated that most difficulties with HPLC are a result of column problems due to poor quality lab water. Water that’s not purified to the highest standards can lead to ghost peaks, blocked chromatography columns, poor separations, and more.
This means you need to adopt the highest standards when it comes to your lab reagents – high purity is essential.
Avoid Problems with Water Contamination and HPLC Performance
In our FREE primer, we illustrate the problems with water contamination and how these contaminants affect HPLC performance. You’ll also learn why using “ultrapure” water is crucial for getting the best data.
If you're responsible for maintaining your HPLC instrumentation and making sure your data is reliable, then using ultrapure water is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. The right reagents will support you and your work for years to come, allowing you to produce quality data. On the other hand, poor quality water will hinder your lab efforts, and undermine your reputation.
