Focus LC High-Performance Liquid Chromatography

Focus LC is a breakthrough, fully portable, high-performance liquid chromatography system that can be hand-carried anywhere and used on-the-spot.

  1. General Details

    Focus LC high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system is small enough to be easily placed near the sample source and powerful enough to be used in any state-of-the-art laboratory. It’s optimized for low solvent consumption, waste reduction, and energy conservation, and delivers the performance and reliability you need for the highest confidence in your daily results.

    Compact, Lightweight and Powerful.
    The Axcend Focus LC weighs 17.6 pounds and operates at up to 10,000 psi. Reduced diameter columns improve sensitivity by reducing on-column sample dilution.

    Take the Lab to the Sample™.
    Not only does the Axcend Focus LC deliver in the lab, it also works where other HPLC’s cannot – like inside a fume hood, in a glove box, or in the field.

    Innovation that Improves Productivity.
    Experience the ease of instrument and method transfer with the Axcend Focus LC. And, it has the only commercially available cartridge-based z-type flow cell for enhanced sensitivity capillary LC UV-absorption.

    Integration Is Easy.
    The award-winning design of the Axcend Focus LC includes low volume interfacing kits for connections to MS and photodiode array (PDA) UV detection. Axcend accessory equipment includes easy-to-use PDA and autosampler.

    The Column Choice is Yours.
    The Axcend Focus LC operates using any standard capillary HPLC or UHPLC column so you can compare results to your existing LC.

    Efficient Control, Acquisition, and Reporting.
    Smooth control with AxcendDrive operating system software or drivers available for Agilent OpenLab CDS, Chemstation, and DataApex Clarity.

    The Most Environmentally Friendly HPLC.
    You’ll use under 10 mL per week of solvents and produce roughly the same amount of waste, and energy consumption is a fraction of larger, bench-top LCs. Using the Green Chemistry Institute’s Greenness Score, compact HPLC is about 180 times more green than traditional LC systems.

    Lowest Cost of Ownership.
    Not only is the instrument priced below most, it’s optimized for low solvent consumption, waste reduction and energy conservation. Customer costs for solvent and waste are about 1/1000th of analytical-scale systems, so the Axcend Focus LC pays for itself in as little as two years.
