HPLC Analysis in a nutshell - How a sample is analyzed



May 11, 2022

Get a quick overview on how a sample is analyzed using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). As the sample mixture in the mobile phase is pumped into the column, the analytes or compounds in it interact with the stationary phase (ie sorbent). The overall interactions make it that the compounds get retained with varying strength, thereby affecting when they exit the column. The detector at the exit records this elution and the information generates the chromatogram. Have more questions regarding HPLC?
