Advance throughput and resolution for more analytes than ever

Agilent InfinityLab Poroshell 120 columns for HPLC and UHPLC

GC Hero Image

More than 15 years ago, Agilent introduced Poroshell 300, the first commercial columns to use superficially porous particle technology. Now, InfinityLab Poroshell 120 columns have become critical tools for solving the latest challenges in the analytical world.

Today, the InfinityLab Poroshell 120 family has grown to include 18 chemistries—including new phases for chiral and HILIC separations. Together, they deliver exceptional efficiency for HPLC and UHPLC applications, and significantly boost performance from every LC in your research lab.


Put InfinityLab Poroshell 120 innovation to work for your challenging Chiral and HILIC separations

NEW Chiral columns

Can we detect enantiomers quickly when time is short?

InfinityLab Poroshell 120 Chiral columns are the first columns to combine superficially porous particles with innovative chiral stationary phases to deliver:

  • Higher performance and speed, compared to totally porous chiral stationary phases
  • Poroshell 120 ruggedness and reliability
  • A wide range of chemistries and LC modes to maximize flexibility
  • Superior peak shape to effectively resolve enantiomers
  • Increased throughput with more efficient chiral separations

Expanded HILIC columns

Are we achieving the best possible separation of polar compounds?

NEW InfinityLab Poroshell 120 HILIC-Z and HILIC-OH5 phases allow you to retain and separate polar analytes using a standard LC system and reversed-phase solvents. Advantages include:

  • Innovative chemistries for superior retention of highly charged polar analytes
  • Robust, reliable Poroshell particle technology
  • Exceptional stability in harsh method conditions
  • Compatibility with MS eluents

Ultrafast, high-resolution separations: sub-2 µm columns

How can we get the most from the instruments we have?

Agilent InfinityLab Poroshell 120 1.9 µm columns deliver long life and robustness under the most demanding conditions. They also generate lower pressures than many other sub-2 µm columns.
That means you can use high flow rates to drive ultrafast separations without exceeding the pressure rating of your UHPLC instruments.
