Biotage Introduces EVOLUTE WAX, Providing a Total Solution for Acidic Compounds
Uppsala, Sweden, April 20, 2011 -- Biotage, a leading supplier of tools and technology for
medicinal and analytical chemistry, today announced the further expansion of its successful family
of sample preparation products with the launch of EVOLUTE WAX.
EVOLUTE WAX is a mixed-mode weak anion exchanger, developed for the extraction of strongly
acidic analytes from aqueous samples. The resin-based sorbent is surface modified with well
defined hydroxyl-functional oligomers, imparting excellent water wettability. An optimized
combination of non-polar (hydrophobic), polar (hydrophilic) and anion exchange interactions
allows efficient extraction of strongly acidic analytes of wide ranging polarities.
Such strongly acidic analytes are typical of organophosphate pesticide metabolites and
EVOLUTE WAX provides analytical scientists with the ability to extract such compounds more
efficiently from diverse matrices, ranging from ground water to blood. The non-polar/anion
exchange dual retention mechanism allows the use of a rigorous interference regime, providing
extremely clean extracts and reducing matrix effects associated with LC-MS/MS analysis.
“The addition of EVOLUTE WAX compliments and further increases the application scope of the
EVOLUTE family of resin-based, solid-phase extraction products and further demonstrates our
commitment to continuous development of high quality solutions for our customers” says Gary
Dowthwaite, Product Manager for EVOLUTE product at Biotage.
