Standard HPLC Columns - Cogent HPLC Products start with different particles for separations in HPLC:
- Cogent HPS™
Cogent HPS, Type-B, High Purity Silica with extremely low metal content is available from MicroSolv Technology
Corporation or one of our dealers; this product is designed for specific results and is made with a 120A pore size;
reproducibility is assured along with characteristics unique to this material. This product is manufactured from
highly distilled monofunctional organosilanes for purity and thermally treated with proprietary methods for
purity, strength, high surface area and high porosity.
- Cogent TYPE-C Silica
TYPE-C Silica is based on a Type-B, high purity backbone and is further manufactured to cover the silica
with silica-hydride (Si-H) thus replacing 97% of surface silanols (Si-OH). This unique surface along with
our proprietary bonding technology results in C18, C8 or Cholesterol HPLC columns that have unique character and
benefits called Selectivity3, useful in Reverse Phase, Normal Phase or Aqueous Normal Phase.
