Ascentis® Express Biphenyl chromatography column - A new U/HPLC column that offers alternative selectivity for pharmaceutical analytes and drug metabolites that are not well retained or difficult to resolve on traditional alkyl (C18) and phenyl bonded phases.

SLB® IL (i-series) chromatography column - New capillary gas chromatography columns that provide both selectivity and inertness toward polar analytes, resulting in better accuracy and sensitivity.

Supel™ QuE Verde sorbent - A new QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) sorbent for challenging compounds in green matrices, exhibiting improved recovery of problematic planar analytes when compared with traditional sorbents.

Cerilliant® Certified Reference Materials - New product categories of bile acids, antiretrovirals and fatty acids providing the clinical laboratory an innovative format allowing them to accurately quantitate therapeutic drugs and endogeneous biomarkers for improved patient outcomes.
