Phenomenex Publishes Guides for Medicinal Chemistry Sample Cleanup with Strata™ Sorbents
News Dec 22, 2010
The 12-page guide provides methods for large-volume reaction cleanup of synthetic organic compounds, while the wall poster is a convenient laboratory reference showing the steps for fast cleanup of basic, acidic and neutral compounds using the Phenomenex Strata-XL sorbents in pre-packed Giga™ tubes.
The Phenomenex family of products for medicinal chemistry cleanup includes Strata-XL for neutral compounds, -XL-C for strong cation-exchange, -XL-CW for weak cation-exchange, -XL-AW for weak anion-exchange and -XL-A for strong anion-exchange. The large particle and pore size of these sorbents provides an optimal flow rate, particularly when working with large-volume or viscous samples, and allows for the extraction of particles larger than 10 kilodaltons.
“Our Strata line, in prepacked tubes, delivers high recoveries and superior flow rate from large sample volumes,” explains Erica Pike, brand manager for Phenomenex. “These two new tools will help researchers quickly learn how to use Strata-XL for cleanup of a range of compounds, particularly in the field of medicinal chemistry.”

The ideal drug is one that only affects the exact cells and neurons it is designed to treat, without unwanted side effects. This concept is especially important when treating the delicate and complex human brain. Now, scientists have revealed a mechanism that could lead to this kind of long-sought specificity for treatments of strokes and seizures.READ MORE
