Shim-pack VP Series

HPLC Column Solutions

Strict Manufacturing Uniformity

Shim-pack VP series ensures high column-to-column performance reproducibility, which is ideal for method development and validation. Silica-bases, surface treatment and packing procedures are subjected to a strict array of quality criteria tests and controlled respectively. Each column is delivered together with Certificate of Compliance and Column Performance Report.

Comparison of reproducibility between three batches of silica-based materials

Balance of Number of Theoretical Plates and Column Pressure

Shim-pack VP series achieves a higher number of theoretical plates while maintaining low pressure. It provides superior performance shown by NTP per 1MPa.

NTP per 1MPa
Column Size: 4.6 x 150 mm, Mobile Phase: Methanol/Water=70/30,
Flow Rate: 1.0 mL/min., Sample: Naphthalene

Excellent Peak Shape

Packing materials with less metal impurities achieve excellent peak shape of coordination compounds.

Completed end-capping achieves excellent peak shape of basic compounds.

Smooth Transfer of Methods from High-Speed Analysis to Conventional Analysis

By using the Shim-pack VP series of conventional columns in combination with the Shim-pack XR series of high-speed columns, which offer the equivalent separation performance, it is possible to perform method development via high-speed analysis, and then smoothly transfer to conventional analysis. Utilizing these columns with Nexera Method Scouting provides strong support for method development.
