HPLC Buying Guides

This section is intended for those new to HPLC. Sometimes a requirement arises for a new HPLC system, and it can be a complicated maze to specify and purchase a new HPLC System that will be capable of carrying out the required analysis, without over-specifying and buying a Rolls Royce! The following links give much of the information required to make an informed choice. If you would like to discuss the specification of your new system before placing an order, please call the telephone number below

This covers which type of pump to buy, whether to buy a manual valve or autosampler, which type of autosampler, selecting an appropriate column, choosing a detector which will offer the required sensitivity and selectivity, and which data system to buy. Other factors are considered, such maintenance, availability of spares, warranty, IQOQPQ, and Technical Support. Finally we consider hat else you will need, such as tubing and fittings, solvent, an HPLC method, and possibly training.
In order to be able to use an HPLC system to analyse samples you will need an HPLC method. This includes the eluent, temperature, detector type and settings, injection volume, flow rate, column type, run time, and data system settings.
Buying a previously enjoyed HPLC system can save a lot of money. Sometimes it makes good sense and sometimes it is the wrong thing to do. This guide highlights what is a good buy secondhand and what is not, where to buy and what are the risks, and how to tell a lemon from a peach!
