Chiral Technologies Announces New i-CHIRAL 6, the Advanced Screening Set


Posted March 5, 2014

March 5, 2014 — Chiral Technologies has announced the availability of i-CHIRAL 6, a set of six Daicel 3-µm immobilised CSPs packed in columns of 4.6 mm internal diameter and 150 mm long.  This combination of columns, which includes CHIRALPAK® IA, IB, IC, ID, IE and IF, raises method development success rates to greater than 93 percent.

“This advanced screening set will further equip pharmaceutical scientists in identifying and developing separation protocols using our state-of-the art immobilised chiral stationary phases,” said Brian Freer, Business Manager for Chiral Technologies Europe.  “Similar to i-CHIRAL 4, the tool set is value-priced to meet the most stringent research budgets.”

The i-CHIRAL 6 set, which complements i-CHIRAL 4 released in late 2013, is designed for high-speed, high-efficiency separations of enantiomers.  It is the complementarity nature of the added CHIRALPAK IE and IF that allows scientists to achieve resolution of the most difficult-to-separate target compounds.
