New Inert Zebron GC Column from Phenomenex Improves Responses of Active Compounds

Oct 19 2015

Phenomenex Inc, introduces Zebron ZB-5MSPLUS – a highly inert 5% phenyl-arylene phase GC column for challenging separations in industries such as food testing, pharmaceutical and clinical research, forensic toxicology and industrial chemicals. Designed with rigorous fused-silica deactivation and quality control processes, Zebron ZB-5MSPLUS virtually eliminates active sites on the column’s surface that can negatively affect peak shapes for challenging compounds. 

Most GC chromatographers are accustomed to using a 5% phenyl-arylene phase, and many  work with active compounds. These researchers can switch to the new inert column for higher responses and lower detection limits, without redeveloping their methods. ZB-5MSPLUS produces better peak shapes without retention time shifts, and ultimately increases a lab’s productivity.

“GC chromatographers will often use a thicker-film column to compensate for active compounds’ proclivity to stick to the column surface,” explained Kristen Parnell, brand manager for Phenomenex. “The drawbacks of that approach can include increased run time and bleed. Our new deactivated column reduces the need to compensate for this activity.”

The new Zebron ZB-5MSPLUS is also the first of several Phenomenex GC columns that will feature completely redesigned packaging, which uses both recycled and recyclable materials and is easier to open and store.

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. From drug discovery and pharmaceutical development to food safety and environmental analysis, Phenomenex chromatography solutions accelerate science and help researchers improve global health and well-being. For more information on Phenomenex, visit the webiste or follow the company on Twitter @Phenomenex.
