High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC & UHPLC)
Shimadzu has been at the forefront of HPLC/UHPLC design and manufacturing for more than 40 years, developing instruments that enable chromatographers to select the system best suited to their application. Whether used for routine liquid chromatography analysis or high-end research, our versatile portfolio of instruments, from micro LC and analytical HPLC/UHPLC to SFC and preparative HPLC, delivers unmatched performance and data quality. In addition, with the incorporation of Analytical Intelligence, these systems simplify operation and enable more efficient workflows.
Analytical HPLC/UHPLC Systems
Nexera Prep LC systems and components enhance all aspects of the separation and purification process, delivering excellent purity results, processing speed, and cost-effectiveness. Versatile hardware configurations, easy optimization of preparative parameters, and a user-friendly workflow allow users to select the system that best matches the target fraction volume and sample type.
IC – Ion Chromatography
The ICDS-40A anion suppressor is a highly efficient, electrodialytic membrane suppressor for ion chromatography. It offers stable reduction of electrical conductivity of the eluent at the time of detection, enabling highly sensitive anion analysis. It features a low internal volume resulting in minimized peak dispersion for improved peak shape and good separation of early eluting compounds.
SFC – Supercritical Fluid Chromatography
GPC - Gel Permeation Chromatography
The modular set-up of the Nexera GPC is the ideal tool for the separation of polymers by molecular weight using gel permeation chromatography (GPC). Based on the Nexera series HPLC systems, it is characterized by excellent retention time stability and flexible detection options, while the built-in Analytical Intelligence features ensure maximum reliability and ease-of-use.
Addition of a refractive index detector (RID) to a compact HPLC builds an i-series GPC, a conventional scale GPC system using multiple detectors with a minimized footprint. A recycle valve kit can be attached to the RID to return column eluate to the mobile phase bottle during intervals when no component peaks are eluted. This reduces mobile phase consumption, cost of analysis per sample and the environmental impact.
