Unseeable? Not with your Charged Aerosol Detector!

Maybe you’ve heard about the benefits of using Charged Aerosol Detection (CAD) in your LC analysis?

In case you haven’t, let’s do a quick review:

  • Excellent sub-nanogram sensitivity coupled with a wide dynamic range
  • Near-universal detection independent of analyte structure
  • Standard-free quantitation

Yes, these are some analytical gains you’ll get, but certainly not all. That’s because the real power comes when you use multi-detection methods, like HPLC-UV-CAD, for impurity analysis.

But you’ll need a solid understanding of how the detector works and what factors affect the performance before you dive in. And that’s where our new HPLC-CAD Learning Center can help you. Created by our chromatography experts to answer your commonly asked questions, from basics to advanced technical knowledge.
