HPLC Product Information

High Performance Liquid Chromatography, usually abbreviated as HPLC, is a form of column chromatography used frequently in biochemistry and analytical chemistry. It is sometimes referred to as High Pressure Liquid Chromatography but, this is primarily a historical usage not widely accepted today. HPLC is used to separate components of a mixture based on a variety of chemical interactions, usually of a non-covalent nature, between the analyte and the chromatography column. The end result is the chemical compounds which started mixed, in a single sample injected into the instrument are now eluted (coming out of the instrument) at different times. These peaks, each representing a different chemical species, may be collected as separate purified compounds or more often simply detected to determine their presence or quantity.
