Hamilton at the Analytica
New Solutions for Today’s Analytical
is a global manufacturer of high quality analytical products. Our well-known Microliter
syringes are outstanding in all areas of precision liquid handling including
sample injection in GC and HPLC. Pipettes, semi-automatic diluters/dispensers
and tailored liquid handling solutions for OEM customers complete the
portfolio. In the field of analysis Hamilton is renowned for innovative
laboratory and process sensors as well as for unique polymeric HPLC columns for
reversed phase and ion chromatography. Hamilton also manufactures innovative
robotic pipetting systems and solutions for laboratories in the field of
biotechnology, cell-biology and pharmaceutical industry.
At the Analytica
in Munich we will present a huge variety of new innovative laboratory products:
The X-Type syringe for CTC LC-PAL
autosamplers comes with a highly inert internal coating of the needle and the
glass barrel which prevents adsorption of e.g. sticky biomolecules and leads to
an increased syringe lifetime. The plunger-tip is made from a resistant
PTFE-composite which ensures perfect sealing for all samples over the whole
usage time. The wetted parts of the new X-Type syringe is completely metal-free
as it is often required for sensitive applications.
The Microlab 600 is a semi-automated sample
preparation system which enables the customer to handle even high numbers of
samples with outstanding precision and accuracy independently from the person
who is using the instrument. The results do not depend on the physical properties
of the aspirated and dispensed liquids since a positive displacement principle
is applied for volume determination. The Bubble-Free-Prime (BFP) syringe
technology avoids dead volume and ensures rapid priming with different liquids
and without air bubbles. Moreover, the highly inert flow path ensures perfect
bio-compatibility. The Microlab 600 system may be also used for sample
preparation in trance metal determination due to these unique properties.
GMP/GLP compliance kit was developed for highly regulated laboratories which
enables the customer to record all activities of the instrument.
Special Saltline syringes are now available for
the Microlab 600 which offer increased lifetime and may be used for handling of
high buffer concentrations, salty solutions and concentrated acids. The
Saltline syringes are tipped with an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene
(UHMWPE) plunger seal which exhibits excellent mechanical stability and high
addition to the liquid handling solutions, four new HPLC columns have been developed which are intended as a
complete solution for the determination of standard anions in water,
environmental or process samples. Two high-resolution columns with different
capacity are optimized for analysis of medium-high and trace-level sample
concentrations. Since the analysis time is more and more important for the
customers there is one special column which may be used for fast analysis without
loss of resolution. Another model was designed for reduced buffer consumption
which safes resources and time for preparation of new mobile phase.
sophisticated architecture and covalent surface modification of the polymeric
packing particles makes the new products extremely durable and long-lasting.
Even the direct injection of native samples without extensive sample
preparation is possible in most cases. The well controlled manufacturing
process and compliance to ISO 9001 ensures unmatched column-to-column
reproducibility (see Figure). The columns may be used on all common ion
chromatographs or HPLC systems and several detection principles may be applied
since there are plenty of mobile phases possible.
feel free to visit us at the Analytica in Hall B1 at booth # 203/304. A daily
guided tour from 11:00 to 11:20 will give you an overview about our complete
analytical product portfolio.
