Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces the publication of a new medicinal chemistry methods brochure and companion wall poster guide to sample cleanup using the company’s line of Strata-XL polymeric solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbents. The 12-page guide provides methods for large-volume reaction cleanup of synthetic organic compounds, while the wall poster is a convenient laboratory reference showing the steps for fast cleanup of basic, acidic and neutral compounds using the Phenomenex Strata-XL sorbents in pre-packed Giga tubes.
The Phenomenex family of products for medicinal chemistry cleanup includes Strata-XL for neutral compounds, -XL-C for strong cation-exchange, -XL-CW for weak cation-exchange, -XL-AW for weak anion-exchange and -XL-A for strong anion-exchange. The large particle and pore size of these sorbents provides an optimal flow rate, particularly when working with large-volume or viscous samples, and allows for the extraction of particles larger than 10 kilodaltons.
“Our Strata line, in prepacked tubes, delivers high recoveries and superior flow rate from large sample volumes,” explains Erica Pike, brand manager for Phenomenex. “These two new tools will help researchers quickly learn how to use Strata-XL for cleanup of a range of compounds, particularly in the field of medicinal chemistry.”
