UPLC Capability Added

UIP has added a Waters ACQUITY UPLC H-Class System. This unit can perform HPLC/UHPLC methods up to 1034 bar/15,000 psi (normal HPLC is ~400 bar / 5000 psi). The higher pressure allows for smaller columns with smaller particle sizes which can reduce run times and solvent consumption. The UPLC will have increased resolution and sensitivity. The UPLC is interfaced with a PDA detector and a Corona Veo detector.  This unit will be online in June.
