, an inexpensive technique offering minimal performance, is favored by small labs and academia.
Although HPLC sales dwarf those of LPLC machines, low pressure chromatography holds an advantage in many biomolecular research areas, such as studies of proteins and monoclonal antibodies, where harsh handling of a sample could damage it.
The LPLC market can be divided into two segments: analytical and preparative systems.
The company holds significant positions in the prep and process LPLC markets through its ATKA, Bioprocess and STREAMLINE product lines.
Analytical HPLC companies Agilent, Shimadzu and Hitachi only sell prep HPLC systems, while Waters sells both HPLC and LPLC prep systems.
systems consist of analytical systems, used primarily in research, and preparative systems.
Due to the competition from HPLC and LPLC
, TLC has become, for the most part, a niche application.
Prep HPLC currently accounts for over 60% of the total prep LC market, which also consists of LPLC
