Heptafluorobutyric Acid (HFBA) is an ion pairing agent for reverse-phase HPLC separation of peptides or proteins. ProteoChem's HFBA purity is > 99% to maximize sensitivity of your assay. HFBA provides sensitive low UV wavelength nondestructive peptide detection in reverse-phase HPLC protein and peptide separation systems. HFBA is packaged in 1 mL ampules for your convenience - It takes only seconds to prepare 1 liter of fresh 0.1% heptafluorobutyric acid solution mobile phase for reverse-phase chromatography.
Applications for HFBA
ProteoChemís HFBA is ideally suited as an ion pair reagent for reverse-phase HPLC applications. HFBA is excellent for protein/peptide sequencing and as a protein or peptide solubilizing reagent. HFBA is often used in amino acid analysis and solid-phase peptide synthesis. Our highly refined HFBA is tested for optimal HPLC performance.
