Shimadzu offers a wide variety of injectors ranging from manual valves to high throughput autosamplers. Autosamplers provide unattended sample injections, but are designed to minimize cross-contamination. Clean, high-speed injections are possible with short cycle times that allow for fast chromatography. Prominence, Nexera XR, and Nexera X2 series autosamplers offer different options including, pretreatment, loop injection methods, sample coolers for storing samples at a constant temperature, or a rack changer to increase sample capacity.
The Nexera series SIL-30ACFV autosampler is a unique flow vial autosampler for use with 3rd party dissolution systems.
The SIL-30AC is an automatic sample introduction system that reaches a new level of low-carryover performance. With a pressure tolerance of up to 130 MPa and one of the world’s fastest sample injection (10 seconds), sample run times are dramatically reduced. The SIL-30AC offers pretreatment functions for a fully automated sample injection and additional needle rinsing options to minimize cross-contamination.
The SIL-30ACMP is a multi-plate autosampler featuring the fastest injection operating time (7 seconds) while still maintaining near zero carryover performance. This autosampler offers more sample capacity due to the multi-plate feature and in combination with high-speed injections throughput is improved for multi-sample processing. With high-performance materials and rinsing options, quantitate precision and high-sensitivity is achieved and maintained.
The SIL-20ACXR is a direct injection (needle in flow path) autosampler that performs high-speed injections with high-precision for injecting trace quantities. It features an improved high-pressure valve with a pressure tolerance of 66 MPa.
The SIL-20AHT and SIL-20ACHT are direct injection (needle in flow path) autosamplers renowned for their accuracy, precision and low-carryover. The -20ACHT has an enhanced high-pressure valve (pressure tolerance up to 35 MPa) for higher sample-throughput applications.
The SIL-20AC is a direct injection (needle in flow path) autosampler with a high pressure valve composed of PEEK hardware. The -20AC has a maximum pressure tolerance up to 20MPa but can also be upgraded to support inert applications with the change of the sample loop and injection needle.
The SIL-AF and SIL-AP are multipurpose autosamplers capable of large injection volumes, and well suited for automatic pretreatment applications such as dilution and mixing processes. The SIL-10AF offers high-throughput repeat analysis with high-speed sample injections. The SIL-10AP is the offered preparatory autosampler with large volume injection capabilities (up to 5mL). Both the SIL-10AF and SIL-10AP can be equipped with different sized sample loops allowing for analytical, semi-preparative, and preparative injection volumes.
The SIL-10Ai is an inert autosampler with a metal free flow path for bio-inert and ion chromatography applications. Similar to the SIL-10AF and SIL-10AP, the SIL-10Ai is capable of either syringe-measured or fixed-loop injections up to 5mL.
Shimadzu offers a variety of manual injectors for analytical and preparatory use, in both stainless steel and PEEK construction.
