What is the future for UPLC? Is it the next big thing for biological/chemical research? Has anyone ever used one? How widely will this new instrument be needed in the foreseeable future?
Pressures are much higher and particle sizes in the columns are smaller. You can get unparalleled separations and shorter run times with UPLC vs. traditional HPLC. Supposedly it is going to be an invaluable tool in the future for a ton of biological/biochemical research. I want to know from someone that's actually used one before what they are like, the pros vs cons, and the current limitations that they have.Isn't UPLC just a fancy name for HPLC?
