LC-2030C NT HPLC System
Guaranteed Data Quality With No Experience Needed
As HPLC becomes more commonplace, there is growing demand for instruments that cater to both novices and experts. The LC-2030C NT provides a simple touch-screen user interface and a workﬂow that requires no specialist training. The Shim-pack™ NT-ODS is a slide-in column that can be inserted in one motion, with no need for a wrench or other tools. The column is automatically connected into the ﬂow path with no risk of human error. In this way, the LC-2030C NT enables all users to collect accurate data no matter their level of expertise.
Hardware and software advances in HPLC over recent years have led to a fully-automated analysis cycle as standard. However, column installation has remained a manual step requiring user know-how. With the LC-2030C NT we introduce a dedicated slide-in column, the Shim-pack NT-ODS. The user can simply insert this column into the front slot and it will be automatically incorporated into the flow path. Analysis can then be begun from the LCD touch panel. The whole procedure can be carried out by staff without specific training. Equipment status and chromatograms can be monitored from outside the lab during analysis, and data results can be processed remotely through a networked PC, opening up more possibilities for flexible workplace.
Column connections can affect the shape of chromatograms, either through small differences between users or human error. Since the Shim-pack NT-ODS is connected automatically by the instrument, there is no need to worry about these possible effects.
The dedicated Shim-pack NT-ODS is a monolithic-type column. The packing state of its separation medium is maintained over a long continuous analysis, whereas a particle-type column may deteriorate. The Shim-pack NT-ODS therefore provides long-term stability even over a large number of continuous injections.
Shim-pack NT-ODS is a silica-based monolithic column with both macropore (µm) and mesopore (nm) structure. The macropore structure helps to avoid column clogging, resulting in long-term stability. The well-designed chemical structure of the stationary phase provides superior reproducibility.
Switch Back to Analysis with Conventional Methods
It is simple to switch the flow path via the touch screen if a packed-type column connection is needed.
