Shimadzu has announced the release of its “Advanced i-Series” liquid chromatographs meeting user demands for analysing a large number of samples or quickly re-processing data even when working from home.
The Prominence-i HPLC and Nexera-i UHPLC systems feature pressures of 50 MPa or 70 MPa respectively and can be combined with a variety of detectors.
Retaining the excellent basic functions of the compact “i-Series” instruments, the Advanced i-Series boasts increased pressure resistance and additional functions to support remote work. Both the system itself and the dedicated software enable reliable data acquisition for all users, with automation to replicate the handling of expert operators.
The “Advanced i-Series” applies Analytical Intelligence automated features such as mobile phase monitoring for continuous analysis, a mobile phase flow-rate control function, and i-PeakFinder for automatic peak integration. Analytical Intelligence relieves operators from organizational, input and processing works as it allows systems to detect and resolve issues automatically, enabling users to easily review instrument status, optimize resource allocation and achieve higher throughput. Analytical Intelligence makes lab management simple and enables higher productivity, maximum reliability and better connectivity.
The new, integrated i-Series LC system keeps the excellent performance of its predecessor, but also addresses the demands of an increasingly varied range of users, locations and approaches to analysis while always delivering highly reliable analytical results. Today, times also call for the possibility of an analytical environment that can deliver identical results regardless of whether the analyst is present in the laboratory, an expert user or new to the operating procedures. Use of the Advanced i-series is intuitive and user-friendly, for reliable, reproducible data, independent of the analyst’s experience level.
Key features include:
- Remote operation and monitoring to reduce time in the lab by 60 %
- Excellent data reliability
- Simple analysis workflow even for non-experts.
