8% The BP-800, Ca carbohydrate column is a versatile and rugged column for the analysis of many types of samples containing sugars and sugar alcohols. Widely used in the food industry for the analysis of fruit juices, general sweeteners, corn syrup, cane sugar, and many other types of food products.

The majority of columns on the market for the analysis of carbohydrates, organic acids, and alcohols utilize an 8% cross-link poly(styrene/divinyl benzene) (PS-DVB). The 8% polymer offers excellent separation of many common samples.
8% polymers combine durability and good resolution. Due to higher cross-linking than 4% and 6% cross-linked polymers, columns packed with 8% polymer can be used at higher flow rates therefore decreasing analysis times.
8% polymers are limited in separating carbohydrates larger than trisaccharides due to lower MW exclusion limits. Compared to the 6% cross-linked polymer, for some types of carbohydrate and organic acid mixtures, the 8% shows less resolution due to selectivity differences.
Benson Polymeric utilizes an 8% cross-link bead in our BP-800, BP-OA, and BP-RA Column series.
