Scents and Sensitivity — LRI in LC: reliable characterization of oxygen heterocyclic compounds
in citrus essences
For this application, the UHPLC Nexera-i is shown to represent the chromatographic system of choice. Thanks to its robustness, this instrument has all the characteristics needed to guarantee the stability of the LRI (Linear Retention Index) approach. Nexera-i also ensures automation of many routine analyses, which is exactly what is required by companies to achieve rapid and reliable results and proper data elaboration in quality control.
Extending GCMS to the analysis of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
This application illustrates the analysis of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) in pharmaceutical substances by HS-GCMS (Headspace gas chromatography mass spectrometry). In this experiment, the pharmaceutical APIs (Valsartan, Losartan and Olmesartan-Medoxomil) subject to contamination with NDMA and NDEA are analysed.
Groundbreaking LC technology
The new Nexera LC-40 series merges ease-of-use and peace-of-mind
The Nexera series of UHPLC systems is said to offer groundbreaking technology in terms of intelligence, efficiency and design. Advanced AI capabilities and lab management using the Internet of Things (IoT) have been integrated to monitor performance and resource allocation. They make the new Nexera
systems a leading-edge and user friendly solution for versatile industries, setting new benchmarks
Searching for the needle in the analytical haystack
Trace detection of sulfur compounds with SCD
The challenge for analytical instrumentation is to detect traces of sulfur in very complex samples
such as crude oil, food and beverages – a search for the needle in the analytical haystack. Sulfur selective
chemiluminescence detectors (SCDs) are a possible solution. With the Nexis SCD-2030 Sulfur
Chemiluminescence Detection System, Shimadzu presents a completely new solution.
NewsShimadzu Switzerland celebrates its 20th anniversary
From its modest beginnings on an industrial park of Reinach, Switzerland the company has now grown to the size of a medium-sized SME. It is one of ten independent subsidiaries in Shimadzu's network of branch and distribution offices all over Europe. This status enables more freedom to better adjust business processes to customer requirements and markets, and to respond to local cultural conditions and traditions.
