Chromatography is one of the most universal methods of chemical and biological analysis. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is the most popular form of chromatography. Over the last 40 years it has become a workhorse of the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries and forensic and environmental sciences. Hundred thousands chemicals routinely analysed in all the industries and sciences. However this technique is complex; it requires special and bulky equipment and trained personnel as well as being expensive to operate. Practically any chemical substance can be tested with the chromatographic method to provide qualitative and quantitative results. The limitation of HPLC usage relates to its complexity.
The Cromite team has developed a new approach to HPLC technology.
We have invented, developed, and patented several new key components for HPLC analysis that allow for HPLC instrumentation to be very inexpensive, user friendly, reliable, and available to a broad consumer base, including home usage.
See this animation demonstrating how the chromatography works.
Users for this equipment include small- and medium-size pharmaceutical, biochemical, and chemical companies and plants worldwide, startups, foreign companies looking to enter the US market, universities, and environmental labs. Certain areas or departments of major chemical and pharmaceutical companies are potential customers of this product as well.
Departments like production, non-analytical research areas, and quality control would also benefit from a less-complex chromatography approach.
Many forensic labs (especially mobile labs), sports control labs, agricultural analytical labs, water monitoring labs, and many similar labs, can be customers as well. Other applications include food testing for possible contaminants at food stores, drug or drug abuse testing for individuals, chemical equivalency for generic drugs, online pharmacies at the request of an individual, and independent testing of components, contaminants, and counterfeit chemicals.
