Thermo Fisher Scientific launches online 2D-LC systems to characterise complex samples

Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed the Vanquish Online 2D-Liquid Chromatography (LC) systems that offer a flexible platform for pharmaceutical R&D, food safety, environmental testing, omics and polymer analysis scientists to characterise complex samples in-depth with greater confidence.

The Vanquish Online 2D-LC system leverages the performance and ease of use of the Vanquish technology, while offering application flexibility and versatility for multi-dimensional LC. The platform delivers peak identification and purity analysis for difficult to separate analytes, for example, structural isomers. Laboratories can take advantage of the flexibility of the Vanquish Online 2D-LC system, combining the 2D-LC and productivity enhancement of Dual LC in one system, while not requiring dedicated 2D-LC instrumentation.

Integrating the Online 2D-LC system with complimentary LC assays enables improved sample throughput while increasing confidence in results. The Vanquish Online 2D-LC system presents an upgrade from existing single channel standard Vanquish HPLC or UPHLC systems, without the need for dedicated equipment for each analysis type. Automated and complete workflows accelerate sample analysis time, maximise sample integrity, and improve confidence in the results.

Frank Steiner, senior manager, product applications and scientific advisor, high performance liquid chromatography, Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: “Confident, accurate and robust analysis is essential for difficult to resolve analytes in complex samples, such as biopharmaceutical formulations, fermentation broths or polymer materials. The Vanquish Online 2D-LC system offers full peak characterisation, with complete, automated and flexible workflows, allowing customers to expand their analytical capabilities while presenting a user-friendly experience.”
