Abstract

A preliminary investigation was undertaken to assess the performance of a new chromatography column technology in applications involving liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. The new column design allows mobile phase and solute to be extracted from the radial central region of the column, which reduces the solvent load to the mass spectrometer and improves separation efficiency. Effectively the column functions as a 'wall-less' column. The advantages of this design is that the analysis through-put can be increased by a factor of five, while at the same time there is a reduction in baseline noise, which results in an increase in the signal to noise response by up to 10-fold in comparison to standard columns with the same internal diameter and approaching 66-fold in comparison to standard columns with the same virtual internal diameter.
