SHIMADZU CORP.: Liquid Chromatograph
According to Shimadzu, the Nexera UHPLC series maximizes reliability and uptime with fully unattended workflows that span from startup to shutdown.
Shimadzu Corp. recently announced the release of the Nexera ultra-high-performance liquid chromatograph (UHPLC) series, incorporating artificial intelligence as Analytical Intelligence, allowing systems to detect and resolve issues automatically. The Nexera series reportedly makes lab management simple by integrating IoT and device networking, enabling users to easily review instrument status, optimize resource allocation, and achieve higher throughput.
According to Shimadzu, the Nexera UHPLC series maximizes reliability and uptime with fully unattended workflows that span from startup to shutdown. Operators can set the Nexera to start up at a specified time, so that it can complete auto-purge, equilibration, baseline checks and system suitability in advance, and be ready for analysis before they arrive at the lab. In addition, FlowPilot ramps up the flow rate gradually, reducing the possibility of damage to columns. The Nexera also has auto-diagnostics and auto-recovery capabilities that allow it to monitor pressure fluctuations to check for anomalies.
With remote mobile phase monitoring and integrated consumables management, the system reportedly maximizes uptime and reliability. Real-time monitoring of mobile phase levels allows lab personnel to efficiently run batches and respond accordingly, if there isn’t enough mobile phase before starting a run. In addition, Nexera tracks consumable usage and sends alerts when parts need to be replaced, allowing users to keep the system running at peak performance. The Nexera UHPLC series allows analysts to confirm parameters and monitor chromatograms in real time directly from a web browser on their smart device.
