The same base silica gel and bonding technology that is used for Inertsil ODS-3 is also employed for Inertsil C8-3. The difference between the two phases is just the length of the hydrocarbon ligands. 10 μm particle size columns are also available to meet the requirement of various pharmacopeia methods. We recommend InertSustain C8 columns for all new method development.
Many chromatographers prefer a C8 column when an ODS phase shows excessive retention values. Inertsil C8-4 provides the same separation pattern (selectivity) and extreme inertness to any type of compounds just like Inertsil ODS-4, which enables easy method transfer from ODS-4 to C8-4 while other commercially available ODS and C8 columns can show dramatically different selectivity even though they are part of the same brand/series.
Inertsil WP300 C8 (wide pore size of 300 Å) columns bring the same legendary performance of Inertsil's narrow-pore HPLC products to columns designed specifically for the reproducible rapid separations of proteins and peptides. Inertsil WP300 C8 delivers rapid analysis with sharper peaks compared to Inertsil WP300 C18.
Inertsil WP300 C4 is a butyl group bonded phase utilizing silica gel with wide pores (300 Å). Also, an optimal polar group is embedded between silica surface and butyl group, which reduces adsorption of basic compounds and fat-soluble proteins. Inertsil WP300 C4 is recommended for the analysis of large, highly fat-soluble proteins and peptides.
Inertsil C8 columns have a pore size of 150 Å and it is recommended for rapid analysis of highly hydrophobic compounds. We recommend InertSustain C8 or Inertsil C8-4 columns for all new method development.
InertSustain C8 is an octyl group (C8) bonded column delivering the same extreme inertness to any type of compounds just like InertSustain C18, which enables rapid analysis of highly hydrophobic compounds delivering symmetric peaks at a wide range of pH.
InertSustainSwift C8 is an octyl group (C8) bonded column offering the same extreme inertness to any type of compounds just like InertSustainSwift C18, which is ideal for analyzing low polarity analytes. In addition, the optimized 200Å pore size silica enables to analyze and retain peptides and oligonucleotides which have a molecular weight from several kDa to several dozen kDa.
