Experts in Developing Specialty Chromatography Devices

For scientists who use liquid chromatography, a significant proportion of traditional applications can be solved using established detection technologies. This includes various types of refractive index, UV-VIS, viscometry and mass spectrometer detectors.

The majority of companies that offer HPLC or GPC systems concentrate on developing their version of these common detectors. However, due to their focus on larger volume applications, these suppliers struggle to produce in-house, specialized detectors for challenging, niche, or emergent liquid chromatography applications.

A well-established solution to this challenge is for liquid chromatography system suppliers to partner with third party experts who are able to supply and develop dependable OEM solutions for lower volume applications where niche detectors are required.

A trustworthy OEM Partner is a partner who can comprehend the exact chromatographic requirements of the target application and can design a tailored, high-quality solution to address these requirements.

Drawing upon decades of chromatographic knowledge and expertise, TESTA Analytical Solutions has established itself as a leading international OEM liquid chromatography detector supply and development partner to an increasing number of process and analytical instrumentation organizations. A typical design and development process employed by TESTA Analytical Solutions to create and supply a new specialist chromatography detector under OEM contract is described in this article.

Assessment Phase

Evaluating needs and requirements is the first stage of any OEM project. This goes much further than the basic technical developments required to perform the application.

All the elements of a long-term partnership are also included, such as the target unit cost, expected volume, support personnel training, response time requirements and the creation of detailed and informative service documentation. In brief, TESTA Analytical’s approach centers on delivering a complete solution, rather than a single detector system.

In the assessment stage, TESTA Analytical works closely with the client during all phases of the process to design a clear and transparent overview of the project, its aims and the role the organization will perform within the OEM partnership.

Design Phase

When the assessment stage has finished, the knowledgeable TESTA Analytical engineering team assesses potential technological solutions for the target application using the organization’s up to date proprietary portfolio of liquid chromatography detectors.

TESTA Analytical’s team will always choose to update a current detector system as the first choice because this provides a solution that is faster to market and lower in cost while also delivering an optimized solution for the application.

If this option is decided to be unsuitable for the application, then a plan is created to develop a novel liquid chromatography detector product that can deliver an advanced solution for the desired application.

For either option, the team carefully assesses the practicality of the recommended solution prior to creating a proposal. At this stage, the proposal is discussed with the client where desired alterations can be executed. A transparent iterative process then follows until all parties agree that the solution optimally meets the requirements of the project.

The TESTA Analytical team will under no circumstances endorse a solution that is not considered to be effective for the task in question or may result in client disappointment as the process...
