Chemical Leachables Negatively Impact Chromatography
Avoid Ghost Peaks with High Quality Pipette Tips
Chemical compounds can leach from common laboratory equipment during sample storage and sample preparation. To avoid this many laboratories use glassware when they could use high quality plastic products and adopt their convenience.
Chemical compounds can leach from common laboratory equipment during sample storage and sample preparation. These compounds can introduce unwanted ghost peaks in HPLC, GC and MS and interfere with sample analysis in a range of activities including analytical quality control. Extraction samples from Sartorius Optifit and Safetyspace® filter tips and their
low retention variants were tested for leachables using HPLC, GC-MS and LC-MS. These pipette tips were found to be practically free of leaching compounds and are therefore suitable for use in highly sensitive analytical methods such as HPLC, GC and MS.
You will get the following content in the white paper:
- Common chemical leachables from laboratory plastics
- Sartorius pipette tips release extremely low levels of chemical leachables
- They can be used without the risk of introducing interfering ghost peaks into the resulting chromatograms
