Parallel and Tandem Analysis

Increase sample throughput without the added time, effort, and cost of multiple LC instruments, method redevelopment, and revalidation. UltiMate® 3000 x2 Dual LC systems provide the functionality of two systems in one footprint. The Chromeleon® Chromatography Data System provides the means to automatically switch between applications-for the productivity of two systems in the time and effort of running one. The x2 Dual Rapid Separation System expands this technology to pressures up to 1000 bar for ultrafast speed/ultrahigh resolution. Parallel LC therefore doubles your HPLC and your UHPLC throughput.

  • Run two different or identical LC applications in parallel
  • Increase throughput for new and existing methods
  • No revalidation of methods required
  • Supports isocratic and gradient separations
  • Analytical and micro parallel LC application kits provide all required tubing and instructions

In parallel LC mode, one autosampler and one column compartment are shared between the two independent flow paths of the UltiMate 3000 x2 Dual LC system configurations with Dual-Gradient Pump. Two detectors, for instance UV-vis, record the signals of two LC applications simultaneously. Chromeleon Chromatography Management Software treats the system configuration as two completely independent systems, and manages seamless autosampler and column compartment sharing.


x2 Dual LC systems for parallel analyses costs much less than two separate LC systems, so you double your sample throughput without doubling costs.
