Waters Corporation has expanded its CORTECS Columns product line with the introduction of two new chemistries: Waters CORTECS T3 and CORTECS Shield RP18. These new CORTECS column chemistries allow scientists to obtain more information per analysis and reduce the cost of analyzing complex samples such as biomarkers, natural products, counterfeit cosmetics, synthetic cannabinoids, veterinary drugs, drinking water and vitamins.

“Today’s scientists want more tools for improving the resolution, speed, selectivity and sensitivity of their UPLC, UHPLC and HPLC separations,” said Doug McCabe, director of product management Consumables Group. “CORTECS Columns deliver the batch-to-batch reproducibility, robustness and quality that customers have come to expect from Waters.”

When used with an ultra-low dispersion ACQUITY UPLC instrument platform, the CORTECS UPLC 1.6µm particle columns are designed to deliver approximately 40% greater increase in separation efficiency when compared to fully porous particles of an equivalent particle size. The highly-efficient CORTECS 2.7µm particle columns are for use on both the ACQUITY Arc UHPLC system and the Waters Alliance HPLC system. By operating at lower backpressures, they allow for the use of longer column lengths to improve resolution or shorten analysis times and increase throughput.

The CORTECS T3 and CORTECS Shield RP18 chemistries compliment the currently available CORTECS C18+, C18, C8, phenyl and HILIC chemistries. All CORTECS chemistries are fully scalable between the 1.6µm and 2.7µm particle sizes. The CORTECS T3 and CORTECS Shield RP18 chemistries are offered in 48 unique column configurations and are immediately available for shipping worldwide.
