HPLC system simply explained

On this page you will find more information about the HPLC system. Among the questions we answer are: what is an HPLC and how does an HPLC work.

HPLC stands for High Pressure Liquid Chromatography.

Schematic representation HPLC

In an HPLC system, liquid chromatography is performed. The eluent is pumped under high pressure through a highly packed column.
Through high pressure and good contact with the stationary phase, a relatively high separation rate and very good resolution is achieved. 
There are several manufacturers around the world who make HPLC systems, such as:  Waters, Agilent and Shimadzu.

What is chromatography

Chromatography is a physical method of separation that distributes components to separate between two phases, one stationary (stationary phase), the other (the mobile phase) moving in a definite direction. The eluate is the mobile phase leaving the column. This is also called effluent.

Chromatography has two forms: liquid chromatography and gas chromatography.
In liquid chromatography, liquid, also called running liquid, is used as the mobile phase.
In gas chromatography, carrier gas is used as the mobile phase. With a Gas Chromatograph, chromatography is applied only with gas.
