The studied analytes comprised some very hydrophobic and hydrophilic peptides with diverse isoelectric points (pI) and thus served as useful probes to explore the potential of the Cogent Diamond Hydride Column in this field of Bioanalysis.

The figure shows how these peptides of widely disparate physicochemical properties could be separated in a single run. With these capabilities, laboratories can be more efficient and increase throughout by not having to perform separate analyses for both hydrophobic and hydrophilic peptides using different columns.
