Agilent Technologies has introduced the 1200 Infinity Series high dynamic range diode array detector for liquid chromatography
The device delivers 30 times wider linear UV-range and up to 30 times higher sensitivity than previous detectors.
That makes the 1200 Infinity Series detector ideal for analyaing mixtures that contain widely different concentration levels.
Analysing such samples usually requires additional sample preparation (dilution/concentration) and a second injection, sometimes with recalibration.
The new Agilent 1200 Infinity Series detector eliminates these time-consuming efforts, acquiring all sample information in a single run.
The Agilent solution extends the upper linearity level from two to typically six absorbance units.
This allows injection of three times more sample while also reducing detector noise by 10 times.
"We are excited by the new 1200 Infinity Series HDR-DAD as it simplifies the quantitation across many LC applications," said Christian Gotenfels, Agilent product manager.
"For example in pharmaceutical analysis, the Agilent solution facilitates quantitation of active pharmaceutical ingredients and respective impurities of fixed-dose combinations in a single run."
