Varian Introduces 920-LC Liquid Chromatograph
Product News Jan 17, 2008
Varian, Inc. has announced the introduction of its 920-LC liquid chromatograph. The Varian 920-LC is a fully automated, computer controlled analytical HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) system that offers “Fast LC” capabilities, high sensitivity detectors and a fully automated validation package for customers who operate in a regulated environment.
HPLC is used by analytical chemists in pharmaceutical, environmental and industrial laboratories for the separation, detection, and characterization of chemical compounds and mixtures.
The 920-LC is an integrated system that can be configured to meet a customer’s specific needs. Each system comprises a pumping system, an autosampler and one or more detectors. The system is preconfigured, pre-plumbed and pre-tested before shipment, reducing the time required to achieve maximum sample throughput.
The low dead volume, pulse free performance and solvent proportioning valves make the Varian 920-LC suitable for “Fast LC”. When used with short, Varian HPLC columns packed with sub 3 micron particles, chemists will be able to achieve shorter analysis times.
A choice of built-in, programmable dual-wavelength or information-rich Diode Array (190-900 nm) UV-Vis detectors feature low noise to deliver lower detection limits for trace analysis. Optional fluorescence, refractive index, and evaporative light scattering detectors allow a wide variety of analyses to be performed with the 920-LC.
