Spark Holland innovations

Better sample care

(U)HPLC injection valve

The injection valve is the heart of the autosampler in an (U)HPLC system. Intermediate Loop Decompression™ (ILD™) is a new innovative and patented feature on our injection valve for (U)HPLC. The proprietary design comprises a unique stator-rotor combination with an extra radial relief slit. This configuration enables loop decompression prior to sample aspiration. Ultra-fast valve switching further reduces pressure shocks to a minimum. The result is highly accurate sample injection down to 1 µl and much longer column life time.

(U)HPLC pump head

Accurate, precise and rugged formulation and delivery of your mobile phase is critical to your results. The patented and unique pump head design prevents the formation of air bubbles in the pump chamber, resulting in the best analytical performance in its class.

The pump also incorporates truly automatic solvent compressibility compensation, which makes manual adjustment of the method no longer necessary. Automatic solvent compressibility measurement is not only used to minimize flow pulsation, but also to compensate for flow rate reduction caused by solvent compression.

Digital twin

A digital twin is a highly accurate, virtual working model of a (U)HPLC instrument based on the same parameters as a real (U)HPLC instrument. Designing with a Digital Twin has great advantages. The system design of (U)HPLC instruments can be optimized in an early stage, thereby significantly accelerating new product development. Besides that, smart diagnostic tooling based on Digital Twin technology helps service engineers in their efforts to make the maintenance process more effective and increase system uptime.
