sigma-aldrich (SIAL) Key Developments

Sigma-Aldrich Expands the Ascentis® Express U/UHPLC Column Line with Addition of 2.0 Micron Fused Core® Particle Columns

Sigma-Aldrich Corporation announced that Supelco, its innovative analytical products and services research business, has launched the Ascentis(®) Express 2.0 micron, a high-speed, ultra high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) column platform based on the proven Fused-Core(®) particle design. Ascentis Express 2.0 micron Fused-Core particles are designed to provide UHPLC performance, while addressing the disadvantages inherent in existing sub-2 micron UHPLC columns. Ascentis Express 2.0 UHPLC columns deliver 300,000 plates per meter efficiency. Furthermore, Ascentis Express 2.0 micron columns are less susceptible to column plugging due to the large 1.0 m frits on the column inlet. While Ascentis Express columns can be used up to 1,000 bar (14,500 psi), they will produce approximately 20% lower back pressure than most commercially available sub-2 m UHPLC columns under the same conditions, reducing concerns of column frictional heating and instrument wear and tear associated with very small particles.

Sigma-Aldrich Corporation Introduces Stable-Labeled Certified Reference Materials of Kratom Alkaloids

Sigma-Aldrich Corporation announced that the Cerilliant(R) brand within its Applied Diagnostics and Testing business segment now offers the first stable-labeled internal standards of the kratom alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These new solution Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) offer testing laboratories deuterium-labeled internal standards suitable for quantitation of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine levels in biological and plant-based samples using mass spectrometry-based methods. Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are psychoactive alkaloids of the plant Mitragyna speciosa, commonly known as kratom. Kratom acts on u-opioid receptors and purportedly exhibits dose dependent effects, acting as a stimulant at low concentrations and an analgesic at high concentrations. Kratom possesses a high addiction potential and can reportedly cause adverse health effects such as seizures, hallucinations, and delusions.
