Agilent Technologies: Infinity Series for Analytical HPLC and UHPLC
Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced the 1200 Infinity Series, setting new levels of performance in analytical HPLC and UHPLC. The 1200 Infinity Series includes the new Agilent 1220 Infinity LC, the new Agilent 1260 Infinity LC and the enhanced Agilent 1290 Infinity LC.
The Agilent 1200 Infinity Series marks the evolution of the successful 1200 Series LC family and 1120 Compact LCs using latest 1200 Series Rapid Resolution LC and 1290 Infinity LC technologies. The 1200 Infinity Series portfolio offers a seamless integration of column technology, instrumentation and software to ensure utmost productivity. The 1220 and 1260 Infinity LCs offer enhanced HPLC and RRLC performance at an HPLC price. All 1220 and 1260 Infinity systems are standardized on 600 bar system pressure, 80 Hz data-acquisition speed and 2x or 10x higher UV sensitivity. The 1220 and 1260 Infinity LCs are 100 percent compatible with HPLC methods, ensuring risk-free replacement or upgrades of existing 1100 or 1200 Series instruments. Further, the new 1260 Infinity Quaternary Bio-inert LC system offers the highest performance in bio-analysis and bio-purification.
"We ended the UHPLC debate with last year's introduction of the Agilent 1290 Infinity LC," said Patrick Kaltenbach, Agilent's vice president and general manager, Liquid Phase Separations Business. "Now we are raising the HPLC standard with a new portfolio that offers a unique continuum of future-proof HPLC, RRLC and UHPLC solutions to match any application or budget."
The Agilent 1200 Infinity Series portfolio allows customers to tailor the exact systems they need, from the simplest manual isocratic LC through the world's highest-performance, fastest, most sensitive UHPLC systems. The power range of 1200 Infinity Series LC systems is fully compatible with the latest column technology, such as 600 bar Poroshell and Zorbax RRHT or 1200 bar Zorbax RRHD columns.
