EMD Millipore LiChrolut® Solid Phase Extraction Columns (SPE Columns)

EMD Millipore LiChrolut® SPE columns are designed for reliable and rapid solid-phase extraction (SPE). This is achieved by using strong but reversible interactions between the analyte and the surface of the stationary phase. A variety of surface modifications allow non-polar extraction (LiChrolut® RP-18 and RP- 18 endcapped), polar extraction (LiChrolut® Si and LiChrolut® CN), cation exchange extraction (LiChrolut® SCX), mixed mode extraction (LiChrolut® TSC), and non-polar extraction on a polymer phase (LiChrolut® EN). The latter is especially suitable for the extraction of pesticides and phenols in water, or drugs in body fluids.

Outstanding Purity and Uniformity

LiChrolut® sorbents offer excellent batch-to-batch consistency. This is due to stringent testing of raw materials and continuous quality controls of the final product. The optimized, validated and certificated production of the sorbents also ensures a high degree of purity and uniformity. The multi-stage purification procedures performed on LiChrolut® materials are particularly valuable for trace analysis. The proportion of elutable components is negligibly small, resulting in purer extracts. As all stationary phases are monitored using the most sensitive analytical methods, very narrow set tolerances can be adhered to.
