Column heaters and controllers
Phoenix S&T’s column heaters and controllers for nanoLC-MS are used by protemics researchers worldwide. Many top research institutions such as the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA and the ETH in Zurich have installed more than 20 sets each for their nanoLC-MS applications. The most common application is for reducing the back pressure in long columns especially those packed with sub 2-um particles. Other applications include: improving peak shapes and elution in hydrophobic analytes, reducing carry-overs, improving chromatographic resolution, etc.
Each of the four column heater style serve its specific purposes. Each Butterfly or pencil heater requires its own controller. The Jailbreak heaters utilize the temperature controller in the Easy Spray source.
