New Charged Aerosol Detector Designed for Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) Applications; Company will also Launch New Coulometric UHPLC Cell
CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- ESA Biosciences, Inc., a Magellan Biosciences company and leader in novel HPLC systems that improve results for pharmaceutical development and QA/QC, life science, and analytical-chemistry customers worldwide, will launch a new, ultra-high-performance version of its award-winning Corona CAD at Pittcon 2009. Fully stackable, with the utmost in sensitivity and flexibility, ESA designed the Corona ultra so that scientists can take full advantage of the speed and increased resolution that UHPLC systems are bringing to today's challenging applications. Pittcon 2009 will be held March 9-12 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
Commenting on the new Corona ultra detector, Jasmine Gruia-Gray, PhD, president of ESA's life science tools business, said, "Drug formulations are increasingly complex; analytical scientists can't afford to miss even the lowest concentration of impurities, which is why our Corona CAD has become a key analytical tool in the pharmaceutical industry. Breakdown products and impurities may lose their UV response, so they're easy to overlook with other detectors. Our charged aerosol detection technology lets you see any non-volatile analyte, even those without a chromophore. Speed is also important and the leading pharmaceutical development and QA/QC operations have been migrating to a UHPLC environment. We designed the new Corona ultra to customer specifications. It delivers the increased resolution and performance that other detectors can't match, with the cost and time savings of high-speed analysis - plus, it's rugged and stackable so it fits easily in any lab - no additional bench space necessary."
Besides excellent sensitivity, the Corona ultra shows consistent inter-analyte response independent of chemical structure. This breakthrough detector can effectively analyze a wide diversity of chemical structures and important classes of molecules - from small organic molecules, proteins and peptides, to ions, carbohydrates, lipids, and polymers. The Corona ultra makes methods development, validation, and transfer fast and easy for a wide range of life-science research applications and industries: pharmaceutical, chemical, polymer, food and beverage, biofuel, oils, petrochemical, and more.

Corona ultra features & benefits UHPLC compatible -- Faster chromatography methods with higher resolution -- Compatible with traditional HPLC -- Maintains high resolution while reducing analysis Time Heated/Cooled -- Flexibility to develop methods for various types of nebulizer analytes -- More precise nebulization temperature control Dynamic range Enabling detection over four orders of magnitude e.g. API and impurities in the same run Sensitivity 10 ng on column, enabling detection of impurities <0.05% Customer Care ESA provides you with the highest standard in customer Program care to ensure customer confidence, security, knowledge, and support
In addition to the Corona ultra, visitors to the ESA booth #1080 will see other versatile, applications-focused systems designed to help scientists do their jobs better, faster, and easier. ESA will show a range of electrochemical cells, including the brand new ultra Analytical Cell (PittCon 2009 launch), a coulometric cell designed for use with UHPLC systems. ESA's high-efficiency, high-capacity synthesis cell will also be featured. It simplifies generation of analytes, possible degradants, or product for hard-to-make, or unavailable drug-synthesis compounds, and is ideal for producing compounds for NMR or mass spectrometry analysis or biological studies. ESA systems are easy to implement, easy to run, and easy to maintain - so scientists can spend their precious time doing research with their instruments, not on their instruments.
Pittcon attendees should be sure to stop by the ESA Knowledge Center at booth #1080. There, visitors can sit down with an ESA scientist to discuss their specific analytical challenges and customer-care needs - or peruse detailed technical presentations on a variety of applications. The company will also present 15 posters at Pittcon, listed below.
