HPLC Columns

TSKgel SuperSW3000

TSKgel SuperSW3000 are packed with ultra-efficient 4 μm particles,  providing  high efficiency separations. The 25 nm pore size results in a fractionation range up to 500,000 Da for globular proteins. The narrow 4.6 mm column inner diameter reduces buffer consumption and is ideal for sample-limited applications. 

It is important to employ an HPLC system that is optimized with regards to extra-column band broadening to take full advantage of the high column efficiency that can be obtained on TSKgel SuperSW columns.
