Exhibiting at Pittcon 2023 in Philadelphia from March 18 through March 22

PROVO, Utah – The Axcend Focus LC® high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) is a compact system that can be easily placed near the sample source, and powerful enough to be used in any state- of-the-art laboratory. Optimized for low solvent consumption, waste reduction, and energy conservation, it’s leading the way for green analytical chemistry. Conference attendees will view demonstrations at Pittcon in Axcend’s booth #2643. Pittcon’s exposition enables attendees to participate in demonstrations and product seminars, view the latest laboratory instrumentation, and speak directly with technical experts. The technical program includes presentations by top scientists on pharmaceutical analysis with compact LC:

Glen Mella, Axcend Chief Executive Officer, said, “We’re pleased to see university research labs and global pharmaceutical companies leading by example. Our customers in North America, Europe and Asia need compact liquid chromatography solutions that help reduce their carbon footprint while delivering the efficiency of larger, more expensive LCs. We look forward to meeting Pittcon attendees at booth #2643 to discuss their HPLC applications.”

The award-winning Axcend Focus LC will be on display in the Demo and Learning Zone, Solutions for All Scientists to Deliver HPLC AnywhereTM, located in Park #3 at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, March 20th
Attendees will see first-hand the latest advancements in capillary LC, including a temperature-controlled column oven that can be heated to 80°C that accommodates any capillary LC column. The new capillary LC-UV-absorption detection improves the limit of quantitation. The system includes low dead-volume interfacing kits for connections to mass spectrometry (MS) and photodiode array (PDA) detectors.
