Read here how to analyze oligonucleotides even better:

Oligonucleotides are separated very well at high temperatures in combination with high pH, ​​e.g. with HFIP-TEA at pH>8 and 90°C. But the ultimate solution for separating oligonucleotides are bio-inert columns with YMC-Triart Bio C18 as the stationary phase. The recently introduced YMC-Accura Triart Bio C18 columns are equipped with a bio-inert coating. The applied coating enables immediate, high-precision results from the 1st injection - without the need for sample conditioning!

Of course, YMC-Triart Bio C18 columns are stable up to 90°C and in combination with a pH range of pH=1-9.

New Application Note: Analysis of mRNA coupled to enhanced green fluorescent protein by RP and IEX

If you are interested in characterising oligonucleotides, this application note, which shows two methods – RP and AEX – to analyse EGFP mRNA, is highly recommended. Applying the RP analysis excellent peak shapes and recoveries are achieved using a bioinert YMC-Accura Triart Bio C4 column at pH 7 and 80 °C. AEX, as alternative approach, also gives exceptionally sharp peaks using a BioPro IEX QF column with a run time of only 10 minutes!
