Almost every parameter defining a chromatographic separation is temperature dependent. Suffice it to say that temperature control provides an indispensable tool to optimize your HPLC or UHPLC assay. As you will easily recognize, retention times will be more constant with constant temperature, but varying the temperature can also be a great help to tune selectivity, improve peak shape and reduce analysis time. Plus, high temperatures reduce column back pressure significantly, allowing higher solvent flow rates, narrower columns or smaller particles. Clearly, such benefits will only happen if the temperature itself is stable and precise, and without temperature gradients in the oven or the column. And this is exactly what we had in mind when we designed the MISTRAL™ with its forced air oven, excellent temperature control and integrated solvent pre-heater.
