SiliaChrom®- XT & XT Fidelity HPLC Columns
The SiliaChrom XT C18 column is designed for application to be run at very high pH (up to 12,0) at room temperature but also suitable for low pH (down to 1,5). The other one, SiliaChrom XT C18 Fidelity, is used at high pH conditions with a higher thermal capacity. The only difference between SiliaChrom XT and SiliaChrom XT Fidelity is the way how the HPLC column is packed (proprietary) given more robustness at high pH and temperature.
The key is to have a hybrid particle or hybrid surface to reduce de solubility of the silica at high pH. In fact, the SiliaChrom XT is silica coated with a prepolymer of methyltriethoxysilane/tetraethoxysilane, followed by special thermal treatment to get a rigid surface that is less soluble than silica itself.
- Excellent durability at high pH
- Ideal for basic compounds
- High thermal stability
- Ideal for auto-purification (Prep. LC-MS)
- Double endcapped
- Best HPLC column for Metabolite Study

SiliaChrom® XT Fidelity C18 has a hybrid surface composed from a condensation of inorganic SiO2 species and an organosilane (CH3-SiO1.5). This hybrid, a more hydrophobic matrix, has an incomparable resistance to extreme high pH conditions (up to 12). The only difference between SiliaChrom XT C18 and SiliaChrom XT Fidelity C18 is the way they are packed, giving Fidelity columns more robustness at high pH and temperature.
