Products to Increase Throughput and Increase Productivity

WATERS Cortecs Solid Core Column

( 2.7um and 1.6um particle size )

Finally a column product line that can be used in both systems of UHPLC ( UPLC ‘s ) and HPLC systems. One column for all. The WATERS CORTECS is an addition to the long line of superior WATERS technology columns but with solid core particles. These columns offer a much higher efficiency as compared to conventional fully porous particles and are considered the next step for chromatography columns of the future. Higher efficiencies means better separation power between analytes with lower backpressure enabling faster analysis while meeting demanding separation requirements. All in all far better peak shapes.


  1. Comes in either 2.7um particle sizes ( suitable for both UHPLC / UPLC and HPLC ) systems as well as 1.6um particle sizes ( solely for UHPLC/UPLC ) systems.
  2. Comes in 7 different chemistries for octagonal separations which are reversed phase modes and HILIC mode columns.
  3. Various column dimensions of different internal diameter and length available.
  4. All columns are individual tested and each column has it’s own test mix available for purchase for column performance qualification at your own convenience.
  5. Made with the tightest stringency of WATERS columns Manufacturing of the highest production quality.
