World?s Fastest, Most Comprehensive Lc System

Apr 22 2006

Agilent Technologies Inc. introduces the Agilent 1200 Series LC (liquid chromatography) system, replacing its market-leading 1100 Series LC. Used by more than 250,000 customers worldwide in applications from forensics to food safety, pharmaceuticals and protein research, LC is a measurement technology used to separate, identify, quantify and purify compounds. It represents a $2 billion market and is one of the largest sources of revenue for Agilent's life science and chemical analysis business.

Since introducing the 1100 Series instrument in 1995, Agilent has sold more than 400,000 modules, or roughly 60,000 LC systems, making it the most popular LC in the industry. To protect customer investments, Agilent has made the 1200 reverse-compatible with the 1100. Customers can combine new and existing modules, and can continue using existing methods without costly new method development, revalidation or retraining of operators. Agilent even provides an 1100 Emulation Mode for customers using non-Agilent software until third-party software upgrades are available.

The Agilent 1200 is the most comprehensive LC available. With more than 60 instrument modules, it can be configured for all major LC applications, including a new rapid-resolution format as well as prep-scale, standard, narrow, capillary, nanoflow, and Agilent's revolutionary chip-based liquid chromatography. Now HPLC-Chips are available to apply this technology for both small and large molecule work, with chromatographic separation or just for infusion of samples. Nanospray HPLC-Chip/MS technology can provide customers with more than a 1,000-fold improvement in sensitivity over conventional LC/MS.

The Agilent 1200 Series Rapid Resolution System.
The new 1200 Series Rapid Resolution System provides up to 20 times faster analysis and 60 percent higher resolution than conventional LC, making it twice as fast and three times as precise as the competition's best systems. The system can also still run any traditional LC method, making it the most flexible LC on the market. Further, a special high-throughput configuration of the 1200 Rapid Resolution system allows sequential execution of more than 2,000 samples per day on a single system - without giving up data quality or method flexibility.

The system features more than 70 new Rapid Resolution High Throughput (RRHT) columns and a new high-performance pump that can handle flow rates from 0.05-5 ml/min and up to 600 bar pressure. It also features a new high- performance degasser, autosampler, column compartment and UV and MS detectors. The system can be optimized for highest speed and resolution in both LC/UV and LC/MS applications.

"The Agilent 1200 Series Rapid Resolution system has been designed to deliver the industry's best speed and resolution without dramatically increasing pressure," said Fred Strohmeier, general manager of liquid phase analysis for Agilent's life science and chemical analysis business. "It optimizes performance while minimizing the risks that ultra-high pressure imposes on instrument reliability and longevity as well as the risk of changes in the physical and chemical properties of compounds. In short, it provides customers a truly secure approach to increased lab productivity."
