Kinetex Core-Shell Shell C8 HPLC Columns
Kinetex core-shell C8 columns offer increased efficiencies over traditionally porous C8 LC columns on HPLC/UHPLC systems

Kinetex Core-Shell Shell C8 HPLC Columns

Hydrophilic Polar Selectivity and Performance!

The Kinetex C8 is a core-shell based particle with a bonded silica phase ideal for analysis of very hydrophobic compounds. This versatile column can easily upgrade existing fully porous 5 µm and 3 µm methods to shorten run time, increase sensitivity, and even provide greater resolution with much higher efficiency levels.

  • Compatible with All Analytical HPLC/UHPLC Systems*
  • Balancing Performance & Retention
  • 100 % aqueous Mobile Phases Stable
  • USP:L7

*Kinetex analytical columns are compatible with all LC system with standard LC column end-fittings threaded in 10-32. Please contact us at for any questions and information about fitting compatibility and any other column internal diameters.

Recommended Use
Minimized hydrophobic retention for highly hydrophobic compounds

Balancing Speed and Retention

The Kinetex core-shell C8 provides the same Kinetex performance but with a little less hydrophobic retention in comparison to the Kinetex C18 column. This C8 is ideal for extremely hydrophobic compounds that might be too strongly retained on a traditional C18 phase column.
