Uppsala, Sweden, April 19, 2011 / B3C newswire / – Biotage, a leading supplier of tools and technology for medicinal and analytical chemistry, today announced the further expansion of its successful family of sample preparation products with the launch of EVOLUTE WAX.
EVOLUTE WAX is a mixed-mode weak anion exchanger, developed for the extraction of strongly acidic analytes from aqueous samples. The resin-based sorbent is surface modified with well defined hydroxyl-functional oligomers, imparting excellent water wettability. An optimized combination of non-polar (hydrophobic), polar (hydrophilic) and anion exchange interactions allows efficient extraction of strongly acidic analytes of wide ranging polarities.
Such strongly acidic analytes are typical of organophosphate pesticide metabolites and EVOLUTE WAX provides analytical scientists with the ability to extract such compounds more efficiently from diverse matrices, ranging from ground water to blood. The non-polar/anion exchange dual retention mechanism allows the use of a rigorous interference regime, providing extremely clean extracts and reducing matrix effects associated with LC-MS/MS analysis.
“The addition of EVOLUTE WAX compliments and further increases the application scope of the EVOLUTE family of resin-based, solid-phase extraction products and further demonstrates our commitment to continuous development of high quality solutions for our customers” says Gary Dowthwaite, Product Manager for EVOLUTE product at Biotage.
