Engineered for High Performance

Improved Inertness, Better Peak Shape, Low Bleed, and Aqueous Stability

Active sites on a GC column’s surface can result in analyte adsorption and degradation, negatively affecting peak shape and response. To reduce potential surface activity, Zebron ZB-5MSPLUS is designed with a rigorous fused silica deactivation process that improves inertness for troublesome compounds. Instantly achieve higher responses for active compounds compared to your current 5ms phase column, without changing your selectivity.
