Lux Polysaccharide Chiral Columns
Lux chiral HPLC columns offer effective chiral separation under Reversed Phase, Polar Organic, Normal Phase, and SFC conditions. Lux chial HPLC columns are a guaranteed alternative to ChiralPak chiral LC columns.

Lux Polysaccharide Chiral Columns

One of the World’s Leading Polysaccharide Chiral Columns

Optimize your chiral separation and chiral purification with Lux® polysaccharide chiral HPLC columns. The Lux family of amylose and cellulose chiral selectors provides a variety of complementary selectivities that allow you to screen for the most effective enantiomeric separation under Reversed Phase, Polar Organic, Normal Phase, and SFC conditions. With numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and countless applications being developed, Lux chiral HPLC columns are rapidly becoming the premier choice for simplified chiral purification and chiral separation worldwide.

Simplified Chiral HPLC/SFC Column Screening Strategies

Lux® immobilized chiral stationary phases provide complementary but distinct enantioselectivity for a wide range of chirality. In addition, the immobilization process allows for the use of a wide range of mobile phases and strong solvents, making the Lux immobilized phases an ideal set of chiral phases to start screening with.

Lower pressure, all-purpose particle size for analytical LC (HPLC) or SFC methods and especially for high performance preparative LC or SFC purification work. Directly scales down to 3 µm particle size.

Internal Diameters (ID) Available for LC and SFC

Analytical Semi-Prep Preparative
2.0 mm 4.6 mm 10 mm 21.2 mm 30 mm 50 mm

The perfect fit for analytical LC (UHPLC/HPLC) or SFC screening or analysis methods. Directly scales up to 5 µm particle size.

Reproducibility and Scalability

Our highest standards of quality will ensure that you are fully satisfied with each and every Lux chiral column as consistent quantitation and results come with every Lux batch and column that we manufacture. With matching selectivity, the 3 μm and 5 μm i-Amylose-3 particle sizes allow you to scale down to increase resolution or easily scale up for preparative purification work.
