Anachem has unveiled the Gilson PLC 2020, a personal liquid chromatography (LC) system for reverse and normal phase HPLC with Flash purification capabilities to meet chemists' purification needs.
The complete system was developed for chemists to provide an easy-to-use, self-contained instrument specific to their purification needs on a more personal level.
The PLC 2020 is said to be ideal for low-throughput, high-and-low pressure purification to support the individual or group of chemists.
The PLC 2020 is a compact and independent purification platform capable of performing manual injection purification runs from 1-100mL/min with pressures up to 4,060lb/in2.
The system can hold up to four one-litre solvent reservoirs and select between four different elution solvents.
It also has integrated variable, dual wavelength UV/Vis detection and fraction collection capabilities all controlled via the easy-to-use touch-screen controller, allowing the system to be completely self-contained and operated without the need for additional equipment or space.
The PLC 2020 enables users to download/upload a variety of methods or results easily with a USB drive for quick information transfer.
Its interchangeable pump heads and flow-cell design enables users to optimise and accommodate a variety of applications.
The 'HPLC in a box' is said to offer the diversity that chemists require with fully-functioning facilities and an intuitive software interface.
