A common separation method, chromatography describes a family of techniques that can be used to isolate specific components of a mixture or purify it. The separation is generally done by dissolving the mixture into a fluid, which is called the mobile phase, and then passing it through the stationary phase that physically separates it. The most basic example of this would be watching water run through black ink on a piece of paper. As the water falls down the paper, the ink spreads with the water leaving streaks of the different colors used to make that ink black behind.
Although it is usually used in chemical laboratories, chromatography in its various forms has affected our everyday life. Food testing, drug discovery, and forensic science have all benefited from these techniques. In 2013 for example, when Europeans were worried that their beef was coming from horses rather than cows, liquid chromatography was used to surpass the difficulties of testing processed meats in order to ensure the integrity of the beef patties.
Chromatographs have come a long way since their inception and the number of specific techniques has risen substantially. The specifics of your chromatograph will vary depending on what you are testing for and the medium in which your samples will be tested. Contact Excedr today to learn about how our equipment leasing program can help you save time and money, regardless of your specific chromatography needs.Though we are not limited by brands, makes, or models, a few of the most common kinds of chromatography systems that we have leased before can be found below.
A gas chromatograph, or GC, is a specific type of device used in chromatography, allowing users to isolate and analyze compounds. This can be performed on any compound that can be successfully vaporized. By using this machine you can get an analysis without causing decomposition of a sample.
Ions are charged atoms or molecules. The charge of the molecule is determined by how many negatively charged electrons or positively charged protons they have. In ions, the number of protons or electrons is uneven, resulting in a net positive or negative charge.
Liquid chromatography (LC) is essential in many laboratories for the separation, identification, purification, and quantification of various compounds in different matrices.
Lease Any Chromatography Equipment That Suits Your Needs
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
