Agilent Expands Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Portfolio with High-Throughput Injectors
Product News Nov 13, 2009
Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the 1290 Infinity LC Injector HTS/HTC sample injection system offering speed, ultra-low carryover, and robustness for customers requiring high throughput.
The Agilent 1290 Infinity LC System, launched earlier this year, delivers best-in-class performance in all HPLC, UHPLC and LC/MS categories. These new, Agilent LC injectors are the first high-throughput sample injection modules to provide 1290 Infinity LC pressure capability at 1200 bar. The systems contain a specially designed high-pressure valve that is proprietary to Agilent.
“Our 1290 Infinity LC customers are impressed by the outstanding reproducibility and limits of detection,” said Patrick Kaltenbach, Agilent general manager, Liquid Chromatography. “Agilent’s proprietary 1200 bar valve technology is a game-changing improvement for robust and reliable operation in a high-throughput environment. Our injector makes it a complete high sample capacity solution for LC and LC/MS users.”
Increasing the daily sample throughput of analytical laboratories without compromising quality of results is a constant challenge for contract research organizations as well as the pharmaceutical and food industry. The 1290 Infinity LC Injector extends sample capacity to 24 cooled microwell plates or 648 cooled 2-mL vials.
Overlapping injection and wash steps during runs allow for ultra-fast injection times of less than 5 seconds without compromising carryover. The new injector system is available now and is compatible with Agilent’s software programs ChemStation, MassHunter and EZChrom.
