A New Era of Liquid Chromatography: Improving HPLC Throughput with Automation and Real Time Diagnostics

December 16, 2011

Are you achieving high throughput? How many samples can your lab analyze per hour or per day? Today''s drug discovery labs are charged with moving thousands of samples through HPLC and MS screening processes. If your lab is operating 24x7 to keep up with the throughput demand, every second counts. To achieve high throughput, not only must the run time of a single analysis be shortened, but the total cycle time of the injection sequence and run time needs to be optimized. Solvent management automation and real time diagnostics allow you to increase sample throughput and maximize system uptime while meeting the need to produce reliable results and identify leads. This automation and diagnostics can be achieved by installing an in-line real time flow measurement device in the solvent management system.
