Tosoh Bioscience Introduces TSKgel® UP-SW3000 UHPLC/HPLC Columns
Product News Oct 27, 2015
Tosoh Bioscience LLC has announced the introduction of TSKgel UP-SW3000 size exclusion chromatography (SEC) columns.
These columns offer dual functionality for use in both UHPLC and HPLC systems and are the latest addition to the renowned TSKgel SW series, the gold standard for QC analysis of antibody therapeutics. TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns are now available for sale in the Americas from Tosoh Bioscience LLC.
TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns are packed with 2 μm silica based particles and feature the same pore size as the well-established TSKgel G3000SWXL columns. Hence methods developed using TSKgel G3000SWXL columns can easily be transferred to TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns on conventional HPLC systems as well as on UHPLC systems.
TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns are available in 4.6 mm ID with 15 or 30 cm length. The 15 cm column offers a shortened analysis time with improved efficiency while the 30 cm column delivers dramatically increased peak parameters such as efficiency, asymmetry, and resolution between fragments, monomers, and aggregates. In addition, the TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns demonstrate superior reproducibility from injection-to injection and across lot-to-lot and column-to-column.
“Tosoh Bioscience is very excited about the introduction of the TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns”, states Cara Tomasek, Leader of the Product Management Group. “Customers have come to rely on TSKgel SEC columns for their biomolecular analysis. This next generation of columns offers all the first-in-class qualities users have come to expect from TSKgel columns with the added advantage of seamless method transfer to the TSKgel UP-SW3000 columns on either a conventional HPLC system or a UHPLC system.”
