What is High-Performance Liquid Chromatography?
High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is an instrument that applies the principles of high-performance liquid chromatography and is mainly used to analyze organic compounds with a high boiling point, non-volatile, thermally unstable, and large molecular weight. It consists of a reservoir, pump, sample injector, chromatographic column, detector, recorder, and other parts. HPLC is widely used in life sciences, food sciences, pharmaceutical research, and environmental research.
Applications of High-Performance Liquid Chromatography
- Application in the field of life sciences
