Westcoast Separations laboratory is set up with multiple HPLC and SFC to allow for efficient method development and preparative scale-up. Each of the preparative system is equipped to process samples 24/7 for a fast turn-around of requests from clients and partners.
SFC is the core technology at Westcoast Separations. Our tagline, Partnership to advancing the frontiers of science, is our goal to work with your organization to deliver high recovery and purified compounds in just days, rather than weeks or months. The use of SFC contributes to the efficiency of both the screening and purification of compounds. Supercritical CO2 has low viscosity, this in turn allows for faster flow rates with acceptable pressure drops and results in higher productivity (quicker run and equilibration times); reduction of solvent use of as much as 90% compared with liquid chromatography; and ease of processing collected sample fractions. The CO2 is removed by the gas-liquid separator, leaving the sample in a much reduced volume of solvent that requires less time and effort to remove.
