Extend Your Column’s Lifetime

Chromolith® guard cartridgesChromolith® monolithic HPLC columns are already well known for their robustness and longevity. For even better protection of your analytical columns, Merck also offers Chromolith® guard cartridges and kits. Chemically modified with hydrophobic n-octadecyl (C18) groups on the surface of a monolithic silica rod, the guard columns are ideal for reversed-phase chromatography.

Guard Cartridges

Available in 5 and 10 mm lengths, Chromolith® HPLC guard cartridges are extremely easy to use. Due to the general benefits of monolithic technology, and the convenience of Chromolith® guard columns, they are also popular for the protection of classical packed columns. Guard columns should be frequently changed to avoid excessive accumulation of impurities.

Guard Cartridge Starter Kit

The Chromolith® guard cartridge kit includes everything you need to significantly enhance the lifetime of your columns: a guard cartridge holder, and three guard cartridges.
