High Performance Liquid Chromatography: HPLC

HPLC, or High Performance Liquid Chromatography, is an advanced instrumental technique capable of separating (or speciating) a wide variety of chemical compounds. It is estimated that approximately 70% of all known compounds can be analyzed by HPLC.

After separation the analytes of choice are typically detected by UV spectrophotometry.
HPLC instrumentation is one of the best methods for the determination of organic compounds. It gives us the ability to provide our clients with several important air-method applications, including phenol, cresol, aldehydes, ketones, nicotine, organic acids, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons.

These instruments are rigorously maintained and audited to ensure consistent and accurate results. And whether your project is routine or experimental, our experience in using HPLC technology specifically for the air testing industry has enabled us to overcome many matrix issues such as low level concentrations, unusual methodology, complex matrices and difficult analytes. We can even develop new methods for analytes that are not currently promulgated for testing. Ask us about our method development options.
