Zebron ZB-5<em>PLUS</em>&trade; GC Columns
Zebron ZB-5PLUS GC column works well for drugs of abuse, pesticides, acidic, and basic compounds

Zebron ZB-5PLUS™ GC Columns

Inert, Low Bleed 5% Phenyl Selectivity

  • Highly inert for improved peak shape of acidic/basic compounds, drugs of abuse, and pesticides
  • MS certified low bleed levels provide maximum sensitivity
  • Industry leading QC specifications ensure column-to-column performance
  • Traditional bonding chemistry provides the same selectivity as other 5% phenyl columns

Zebron PLUS GC Columns

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, which negatively affect peak shape and response. To reduce potential surface activity, Zebron PLUS phases (ZB-1PLUS, ZB-5PLUS, ZB-5MSPLUS, and ZB-624PLUS) are designed with a rigorous fused silica deactivation process that improves inertness and peak shapes for troublesome compounds. Zebron ZB-WAXPLUS is specially designed for 100% aqueous stability, enhanced resolution and better reproducibility.

A. Low bleed phase chemistry
B. Clean, highly inert fused silica surface due to very few active sites
C. Temperature resistant and flexible coating
