The company claims that the Pursuit range now covers a much broader array of bioapplications, from ultra high pressure and fast gradient UHPLC to more traditional analytical and preparative HPLC techniques.

The new Pursuit UPS 1.9micron and 2.4micron columns excel under high pressures and fast gradients. Pursuit UPS(1.9) columns boast the highest efficiency of Varian’s phases for liquid chromatography, ensuring best resolution and sensitivity with UV and MS detection.

For bioanalytical methods, where time is critical and thorough sample preparation is not always possible, the new Pursuit UPS(2.4) columns are also high efficiency and easy-to-use. They avoid sample particulate, clogging and backpressure issues to provide reduced instrument downtime and increased throughput, said the company.

Martin Donoghue, senior vice president of scientific Instruments at Varian, said: “These new columns expand the Varian LC family to provide either generic UHPLC discovery or tailored (U)HPLC method development solutions, designed to fit the needs of distinct parts of the pharmaceutical industry. We continue to provide life scientists with more high quality choices for addressing their specific application challenges.”
