Shim-pack SUR-Na Columns - Features
Analyzing Sugars in Foods and Biofuels
Alcohol Fermentation Monitoring by Sugar Analysis
Chromatograms of Fermentation Culture Solution (Upper: Entire Chromatogram; Lower: Enlargement)
With its high performance deriving from the combination of size exclusion and sodium-based ligand exchange modes, monosaccharides, such as glucose and fructose, can be separated, making the Shim-pack™ SUR-Na column ideal for the process monitoring of ethanol production via fermentation reaction with microorganisms.
Fermentation Monitoring Results
|Guard column||Shim-pack SUR-Na (G)|
|Mobile phase||Ultrapure water|
|Detector||RI detector (RID-20A)|
Chromatographic Separation of Various Sugars
The Shim-pack SUR-Na column has superior separation performance, especially for monosaccharides, sugar alcohols, and some oligosaccharides.
Simple HPLC Setup
The Shim-pack SUR-Na column can be used with a simple HPLC configuration because the mobile phase is pure water. The refractive index detector, RID-20A, is one of the most popular detectors to be adopted in combination with this column. The maximum pressure of the column is 4 MPa, allowing the system to be configured with the Nexera lite model.
