Mono- and disaccharides on a Metrosep Carb 2 column using a flow gradient

Mono- and disaccharides, often just called sugars, are constituents in many food products. They need to be quantified for declaration reasons. A flow gradient – on a microbore Metrosep Carb 2 - 250/4.0 column – ensures the separation of the monosaccharides while the disaccharides still elute before 50 min.
