TSKgel® HPLC Columns

High Performance Liquid Chromatography

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) uses a liquid mobile phase to transport the sample components through a column packed with a solid material; the stationary phase. The "mode" of chromatography is usually defined by a combination of a certain stationary phase type with a certain mobile phase type. In order to generate a chromatogram that is suitable for qualitative or quantitative purposes, bonded phase chemistry and column and packing dimensions are one of several parameters that need to be optimized.

TSKgel® Chromatography Columns

Tosoh Bioscience offers a comprehensive line of high and low pressure TSKgel® HPLC columns for use with conventional and UHPLC systems to meet your purification needs. The TSKgel® product line include columns in nearly every mode of HPLC, including Size Exclusion, Ion Exchange, Reversed Phase, Hydrophobic Interaction, Affinity, and Normal Phase/HILIC.
