Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced a set of valve types specially designed for the Agilent 1100 Series HPLC system, providing chromatographers high flexibility, productivity, throughput and separation performance.

Performance Range from Nano up to Preparative HPLC

Users can choose from a selection of different valves, depending on flow rates, thermostatting and application needs. Their seamless integration with the Agilent ChemStation software provides full control at any time during the analysis.

Typical applications include the following:

  • solvent selection for up to 12 solvents using the 1100 Series 12 position/13 port selection valve, and column selection for up to 6 columns using the 1100 Series 6 position selection valve, which provide high flexibility for method development or multi-user systems;
  • alternating column regeneration using the 1100 Series 2 position/10 port valves, which reduces the cycle time for higher sample throughput by saving time for column flushing and equilibrating;
  • easy automation of sample preparation using the Agilent 1100 Series 2 postions/6 port valve, resulting in higher productivity and efficiency; and
  • multidimensional chromatography using an additional 1100 Series 2 postion/6 port valve, for higher separation performance.
