High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) - Agilent Technologies 1260 Infinity

High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a liquid mixture. The Agilent 1260 Infinity Quaternary HPLC offers the most flexibility for solvent selection and automation in HPLC method development, research and all HPLC applications requiring continuous access to a wide range of solvent choices. It is ideally suitable for multi-method, high-throughput workflows.
