In the laboratory, solvents make it possible to process, apply, clean, or separate materials. The Lab Depot offers laboratory solvents that can dissolve, suspend or extract other materials, usually without chemically changing either the solvent or the other materials. Solvents work on the principle of "like dissolves like". Therefore, for a solvent to work, we must know the chemical characteristics of the substance that we are trying to dissolve. The laboratory solvents here represent an extremely broad range and are very versatile to meet most demands in the laboratory to give optimal performance without undue interference or contamination - depending on the degree of purity requested. Whether for hydrocarbon and oxygenated, or so-called water-based solvents, your lab needs The Lab Depot.
The Lab Depot offers a broad range of solvents such as: HPLC - Suitable for HPLC, spectrophotometry or general use. High assay with low residue after evaporation and low UV cut-offs with stable baselines. Lot-to-lot and bottle-to-bottle consistency. Packaged under nitrogen in sub-micron cleaned bottles with PTFE*- lined closure system.
UniSolv* - Universal solvent for GC, HPLC, spectrophotometry and residue analysis. Exceeds ACS specifications. Controlled for high assay, low UV absorbance, fluorescence, residue after evaporation and water content.
BioSolv* - Specially purified for use in nucleic acid and peptide synthesis. Use BioSolv to optimize your coupling efficiencies and synthesis yields.
GCSolv - Stable solvent with narrow solvent front. Flat baseline with absence of extraneous peaks.
PestiSolv* - Ideal for the most rigorous pesticide protocols. Exceptionally low residue peaks as determined by electron capture detection.
SpectroSolv* - Specifically designed for biotechnology applications, including biosynthesis, sequencing and separations.
Purge & Trap - Purified for volatile organic analysis.
