Phenomenex, Inc introduces Kinetex EVO C18 – the latest advancement in ultra-high performance HPLC columns. The Kinetex EVO C18 column incorporates a patented organo-silica grafting process that utilises uniform stabilizing ethane cross-linking to create a unique selectivity and ultimately, pH stability from 1-12. Kinetex EVO C18 has the performance advantages of Core-Shell Technology even at extreme low and high pH. This new advancement adds alkaline pH ruggedness and a highly versatile selectivity to the Kinetex core-shell family of HPLC, UHPLC and preparative LC products.

The EVO C18 columns are an extension of the Phenomenex Kinetex core-shell line, which delivers improved results, increased productivity, easy transferability and significant cost savings compared to traditional HPLC/UHPLC media. The wide pH 1 to 12 stability and improved peak shape for bases make the Kinetex 5 µm EVO C18 especially ideal for analytical and preparative HPLC methods at a variety of challenging pH levels such as those in open access labs.

With the introduction of the 5 µm Kinetex EVO C18 particle, HPLC and preparative HPLC users can utilise 3 µm or better efficiencies and low backpressures to easily replace traditional hybrid materials and run at higher linear flow rates to compress long run times. Additional Kinetex EVO C18 core-shell particles, including those for UHPLC, are scheduled to be introduced very soon.

“’It's very exciting to witness first-hand the incredibly positive customer reaction now that the guarantee of core-shell performance at virtually any pH range is finally here,” explains Simon Lomas, Brand Manager for Phenomenex. “Now scientists can utilise Kinetex 5 µm EVO C18 columns to easily improve HPLC or PREP LC results without the pH restrictions of other core-shell products or the performance limitations of traditional hybrid and polymer columns.”

Phenomenex is a global technology leader committed to developing novel analytical chemistry solutions that solve the separation and purification challenges of researchers in industrial, clinical research, government and academic laboratories.
