The Nexera ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) system from Shimadzu is designed to deliver speed, reliability and pulse-free operation in demanding LC/MS(/MS) applications.
Because high-sensitivity analysis of complex samples is necessary, the front-end component for LC/MS(/MS) must decrease its carryover to zero.
With a newly designed injection port and fine-tipped needle, along with additional features such as multiple-rinse solvent selection and injection port and internal needle rinse, the Nexera SIL-30AC autosampler reduces carryover to a minimum.
The SIL-30AC also features an ultra-fast injection speed - 10sec - as well as an overlapping injection function to allow for a maximum reduction in cycle time.
In addition, the LC-30AD pump features an automatic pulsation-correction mechanism and a high-speed parallel micro plunger design to provide pulse-free solvent delivery and good retention time reproducibility, even in ultra-high speed gradient conditions.
A new mixer (MiRC) conceived from the study of micro reactor technologies delivers efficient, low-volume mixing for even the most difficult analysis, thereby minimising gradient delay.
Nexera's modular components interact with the precision of an integrated system while allowing users to design and upgrade a system to fit their application requirements.
