Sugar columns, as the name suggests, are the columns for the analysis of separated sugar. In addition to this application, sugar can also serve as a parent, and it plays an important role in industry, especially in the field of biopharmaceuticals. With the development of industry, it has strict requirement of the ratio of the components in the mixed sugar and the purity of the single sugar in industrial production. In order to meet the requirement of preparation and analysis of the sugar substances in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries (such as starch, cellulose, sugar,pentose, galactose, fiber tang, glucose, mannitol, acetic acid, etc., monosaccharides, glycosylation proteins, etc. The chromatographic techniques are increasingly used for the separation and purification of sugars.
With the development of chromatographic technology, there are more and more chromatographic columns for the analysis of sugars. At present,sulfonation column with polymer matrix and amino silica column are mostly used sugar analysis columns.The polymer sulfonation column is classified as sulfonated hydrogen type, sulfonated calcium type, sodium sulfonate type, etc.
How can we choose the right sugar analysis column?
