XBridge PREMIER 2.5 µm Columns are the evolution of Waters XBridge 2.5 µm XP (eXtended Performance) columns. They combine the industry leading column stability of Ethylene Bridged Hybrid (BEH) particles with MaxPeak High Performance Surface (HPS) Technology. XBridge PREMIER Columns are available in a standard column format or a VanGuard FIT (Fully Integrated Technology) column format. The VanGuard FIT Column is an all-in-one guard and column design that’s easy-to-use, and extends column lifetimes when analyzing samples in challenging matrices.
XBridge PREMIER 2.5 µm Columns are part of the PREMIER Class of columns. Designed to be the most universal column platform, XBridge PREMIER prevents undesired analyte/surface interactions by utilizing MaxPeak HPS Technology. MaxPeak HPS is designed to increase analyte recovery, sensitivity, and reproducibility by minimizing analyte/surface interactions that can lead to sample losses. In the PREMIER Class of columns, non-specific adsorption is dramatically reduced for analytes that may bind to metal surfaces, without sacrificing performance for those that do not.
With a reduction in these undesired interactions, you can expect:
