Restek's Force LC columns give you the power to maximize instrument uptime, increase productivity, and transfer methods across your entire lab, from your trusted-but-aged HPLC to the cutting-edge UHPLC you just plumbed last week. This incredibly rugged and supremely consistent column line represents the culmination of our twenty-plus years in LC dedicated to continually improving our phase chemistries, our lot and lifetime testing, and our bonding and packing procedures.

 Long-lasting and reproducible—maintain stable retention times and peak shapes, even under the stress of elevated UHPLC pressures and rapid cycling.

 Fully scalable between 3 or 5 µm HPLC and 1.8 µm UHPLC—easily transfer and optimize methods without extensive calculations.

 Premium quality ensured by strict manufacturing and QC procedures—Force LC columns are backed by the strength of our 100% Pure Satisfaction guarantee.

Meet today's workflow needs—and prepare for tomorrow's—by applying Force LC columns to all of your instrument platforms.

Force LC columns are available with Restek's most popular and highly selective Biphenyl and FluoroPhenyl phases, as well as a general-purpose C18.


Force FluoroPhenyl LC Columns (USP L43)

  • Capable of both reversed-phase and HILIC separations.
  • Ideal for increasing sensitivity and selectivity in LC-MS analyses.
  • Offers increased retention for charged bases.

Force C18 LC Columns (USP L1)

  • A traditional end-capped C18 ideal for general-purpose use in reversed-phase chromatography.
  • Wide pH range (2–8) provides excellent data quality for many applications, matrices, and compounds.
  • Offers high hydrophobic retention.

Force Biphenyl LC Columns (USP L11)

  • Ideal for bioanalytical testing applications like drug and metabolite analyses.
  • Heightened selectivity and retention for compounds that are hard to resolve or elute early on C18 and other phenyl chemistries.
  • Limits ionization suppression and allows simple, MS-friendly mobile phases.
  • Restek’s most popular LC stationary phase.
