VWR Hitachi Chromaster HPLC

The Chromaster HPLC is an analytical system, equipped with a 5160 pump, a 5260 autosampler and a 5410 UV detector. The main feature of the system is the high reproducibility of the gradient and retention times, achieved thanks to a low pressure operating mode, called the High Frequent Mode (HFM), which is based on the double switching function of proportioning valves. The autosampler compartment is equipped with a high precision syringe drive unit, for high accuracy and volume reproducibility. Substantially there's no dead volume in the flow path, thanks to a pumping method that washes the needle outer wall. The equipment is actually dedicated to the analysis of the synthesized peptides purity.
