So What's Chromatography ?
Chromatography . . . Analytical Chemistry . . . laboratories . . . chemical analyses . . . Quality Control analysis . . . Chemical R&D
Is the “Art of separating chemicals” and the qualitative AND quantitative analysis of mixtures by instrumentation methods.
‘the technology’ . . .
combines “high tech” elements of separation science, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, pneumatics, electronics, computers and software, with ancillary detection methods; mass spectrometry, ionization techniques; flame ionization, electron capture, photoionisation, flame photometric
Applications are widespread . . . in . . .
Pharmaceuticals, petroleum, environmental, gas analysis, explosives, drugs, forensics, polymer chemistry etc . . .
Design of separation columns integrate aspects of surface chemistry complex molecular polymerisation into both capillary columns and packed tube technologies.
Requirements are for both high temperature use( columns > 450degC) and high pressure ( normal 1-30psi) > 100psi for “FAST” Chromatography liquid absolute maximum in inertness of materials
Associated products involve fluid transfer, fittings, tubing, automatic sampling devices , injection systems, gas sampling and stream selection valves, pressure regulators, flow controllers, gas generators for H2, N2, & Pure Air
. . . It's estimated that 50 to 60% of chemistry access chromatography techniques in one form or another as the key technique in day-to-day Research, Quality Control
Specific sectors of chromatography include . . .
High Pressure Liquid Chromatography
Column chromatography . . .
from nanoscale, micro, analytical, semi-prep to preparative
( also . . . Paper chromatography
Electrophoresis . . .( but that's NOT Us! )

Chromalytic Tech attempts to cover but a small fraction of possibilities in sourcing and supply of some of the “key” elements, “consumables” and replacement parts in this industry . . . all at an “affordable” cost with many alternatives often at better performance specs than the original OEM parts
albeit . . . just in our current range there some 30 to 40,000 individual products from some of the leading OEMs ( NOT necessarily the largest ) many at the fore front of R&D . . . if not . . . then at least with many innovative ideas !
it's a “dynamic” . . . and for-ever evolving !
in fact ~50% of all Analytical Chemistry involves Chromatography
in one form or another !
