Additional HPLC Detector Capabilities

UIP purchased and qualified a second Corona charged aerosol detector for use in our Quality Control and Method Development Laboratories. These detectors are used with HPLC systems to detect compounds without a good chromophore. Charged aerosol detectors are especially valuable for quantifying related substances and impurities that are present at very low levels.  UIP has also added a second Agilent Refractive Index Detector in our Quality Control and Method Development Laboratories.  These additional detectors augment our existing detection capability which includes standard UV detectors, as well as an Agilent Diode Array Detector and a Waters Photo Diode Array Detector.
