Low Bleed, Temperature Stable, Inert, and Individually Tested Performance for All GC Applications
OPTIMA™ columns deliver unmatched performance, reproducibility, and durability for the most demanding GC or GC/MS applications.
From application-specific to a full spectrum of polar to non-polar phases, OPTIMA capillary columns are durable, high temperature resistive, and supplied with a COA for every individually tested column.
Build confident, transferrable methods. Our manufacturing process ensures column to column/lot to lot reproducibility for the most challenging separations.
Long column life and high-efficiency separations can now be confidently built-into the methods that you send throughout your organization.
- Low bleed, temperature stable capillary coatings
- Inert, long-life stable performance
- Increased selectivity with highly reproducible results
- Individually tested columns are supplied with a COA
|Optima-1||100% Dimethylpolysiloxane||Great all-purpose column. Excellent thermal stability. Separation by boiling point.||Non-Polar|
|Optima-5||5% Phenyl, 95% Methylpolysiloxane||Often the first choice in method development. Excellent thermal stability. Slight phase polarity gives greater selectivity. Supreme versatility.|
|Optima XLB||Silarylene phase, optimized silarylene content||Chemically bonded, cross-linked silarylene phase, optimized silarylene content for lowest column bleed|
|Optima-Delta||phase with autoselectivity||Medium polar without CN groups. Analytes determine the polarity of the phase. Idea for MSD and PND detectors.|
|Optima-1301||6% Cyanopropyl-phenyl, 94% methylpolysiloxane||Specifically designed for U.S. EPA Methods 608, 508, 8080 (pesticide analysis).|
|Optima-624||6% Cyanopropyl-phenyl, 94% methylpolysiloxane||Specifically designed for U.S. EPA Methods 624 (environmental analysis).|
|Optima-1701||14% Cyanopropyl-phenyl, 86% methylpolysiloxane||Unique polarity (relative to Optima-17). Ideal for alaysis of pesicides, drugs, and solvents.|
|Optima-17||50% Phenyl, 50% Methylpolysiloxane||Greater phenyl content provides a unique polarity and higher thermal stability (relative to Optima-1701). Great peak shape for amines. Ideal for analysis of pesticides and drugs.|
|Optima-210||50% Trifluoropropyl, 50% methylpolysiloxane||Excellent for EPA Methods 8140 and 609. Equivalent to USP Phase G6.|
|Optima-225||50% Cyanopropyl-phenyl, 50% methylpolysiloxane||Ideal for separation of cis- and trans-fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs). CLose equivalent to USP Phase G7.|
|Optima-240||33% Cyanopropyl-phenyl, 67% Dimethylpolysiloxane||Recommended for FAMEs and dioxin analyses.|
|Optima-Wax||Polyethylene glycol (PEG)||Ideal for analysis of polar compounds. Excellent for alcohols, aromatics, FAMEs, BETX, solvents, etc.|
|Optima-FFAP||Nitroterephthalic acid modified Polyethylene glycol (PEG)||Ideal for analysis of volatile fatty acids, and phenols. Close equivalent to USP Phase G35||Very Polar|
