The relation between sample load and theoretical plate number for RSpak RP18-415 (a column for reversed phase chromatography) is shown. The theoretical plate number does not decrease when sample load is lower than 10 micro-g. However, it suddenly decreases when the sample load exceeds 10 micro-g. It is recommended to use the column with the sample load lower than 10 micro-g.
