The extremely large number of samples generated for the quality control analysis of combinatorial libraries that are developed in the pharmaceutical research for drug discovery requires fast generic methods such as rapid-gradient reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). These methods are necessary as standard procedures to produce up to several hundreds of analytical results per day and should be optimized in order to be applied to library products of widely differing polarities. This work presents an optimized generic method using a narrow-bore column packed with 1.5-microm nonporous particles and a completely automated HPLC workstation configured for the best efficiency, throughput, and robustness with this column. A test mix of 12 compounds with a wide polarity range is separated within 1.5 min with a cycle time of 3.5 min. The throughput is further enhanced using a Gilson 233XL dual-injection sampler to feed two parallel HPLC systems in order to perform 34 analyses per hour.
