i-CHIRAL 4, a set of four immobilized CSPs, is now available.

i-CHIRAL 4 can be successfully used by researchers as a primary screening tool for target chiral compounds.

Chiral Technologies announced today the availability of i-CHIRAL 4, a set of four Daicel 3-µm immobilized CSPs – CHIRALPAK® IA, IB, IC and ID – packed in columns of 4.6 mm internal diameter and 150 mm long. This combination of columns will raise method development success rate to greater than 89 percent, calculated from screening over 100 chiral compounds with a single mobile phase.

“i-CHIRAL 4 can be successfully used by researchers as a primary screening tool for target chiral compounds,” said Mark McDonald, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Chiral Technologies. “The tool set will greatly reduce screening time, boosting laboratory productivity and maximizing funding from research budgets.”

i-CHIRAL 4 is designed for high-speed, high-efficiency separations of enantiomers. The immobilized CSPs exhibit greatly enhanced robustness and remarkable stability, allowing separation scientists to employ essentially any organic solvent as mobile phase to handle the most challenging of separations.
