Let your application define your analytical system solution.

In HPLC, components of a mixture are carried through the stationary phase by the flow of a mobile phase and separation is based on differences in migration rates among the sample components. Therefore, the nature of your analytes defines not only the method but also the HPLC system.

Main characteristics of the analytes:

  • Molecular Weight defines the pore size of the stationary phase
  • Solubility defines the HPLC mode, the chemistry of the stationary phase, and the eluent.
  • Concentration and Matrix define the detection parameters and column dimensions.

The elutropic series defines the solvent strength for the most often used chromatography modes normal phase and reversed phase.


Sensitive, precise and adaptable to your needs.

The analytical HPLC, ULDC and UHPLC systems of the KNAUER AZURA® liquid chromatography instruments are designed to support and facilitate your work. Whether doing routine analysis or demanding separation tasks, AZURA systems are the right tool to overcome your analytical challenges.

Liquid chromatography is a well-established technique for the separation of substances. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a suitable method for the analysis of a wide range of application areas.

Here, we describe the principle of HPLC and introduce to the most important components in an HPLC system and the factors that determine the success of a measurement.


Food Analysis

Analytical methods are essential to ensure product quality, execute regulations and to comply with food standards, specifications and labelling requirements in the food industry.

CBD / THC analysis

Analytical HPLC provides a quantitative basis for classifying cannabis according to chemotype. It is superior to many alternative techniques as performance is not temperature-dependent, which guarantees that even cannabinoids at the lowest concentration are unlikely to undergo decarboxylation.

Analysis of carbonyl emissions

In the monitoring of industrial air, the determination of carbonyl (aldehyde and ketone) emissions is crucial to prevent respiratory, pulmonological, autoimmune diseases, and cancer. With HPLC, a robust, precise, and reproducible analysis can be performed.

Pharmaceutical analysis

In pharmaceutical industry, HPLC plays an important and critical role in the analysis of compounds. It is used in quality control to test compounds for purity and to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis. Also, target molecules are identified and analyzed by chromatography.
