Shimadzu Corporation Announces the Global Release of its I-Series of Integrated HPLC Systems

Shimadzu Corporation announced the global release of its i-Series of integrated HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatograph) systems. The new series improves productivity and promotes an advanced laboratory environment with operation capabilities from the built in touch panel and a smart device, thereby enabling a PC-free laboratory. The i-Series consists of the Nexera-i, which supports ultra-high speed analysis, and the Prominence-i, which supports conventional to high-speed analysis. These integrated HPLC systems propose a completely new operating environment and realize a PC-free laboratory by enabling control of the instrument from a smart device, such as a smart phone, and via a newly developed Interactive Communication Mode (ICM). In addition to improved performance and higher reliability, the i-Series offers an intuitive operating environment that allows anyone to analyze samples easily. Furthermore, full automation, from startup to shutdown after analysis, and a direct access function that allows multiple operators to set samples at any time, provide for a more efficient workflow. Lastly, analysis methods created with existing HPLC systems, including non-Shimadzu systems, can be easily migrated to the i-Series. The i-Series is ideal for a variety of analysis workflows, including R&D, quality control and safety testing, in such fields as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, foods and environmental.

Shimadzu Releases GCMS-TQ8040 Triple Quadrupole Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer

Shimadzu released GCMS-TQ8040 Triple Quadrupole Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer. The GCMS-TQ8040 Triple Quadrupole Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer achieves simultaneous multi-component analysis and ultra-high-sensitivity analysis in the clinical, food safety, and environmental fields. The company’s new GCMS-TQ8040 inherits the performance of the GCMS-TQ8030 triple quadrupole gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GCMS), which provides ppt (1 trillionth) level sensitivity and ultra-high-speed analysis. At the same time, the GCMS-TQ8040 offers improved throughput and operability. This product features productivity through simultaneous analysis, smart operability, high sensitivity, and high speed. In addition, it can be used as a GCMS Smart System by combining it with special Smart Database series software. As phase one of the Smart Database series, sales of Smart Pesticides Database will start concurrently. This database supports the analysis of residual pesticides in foods, with data on approximately 480 pesticide components used worldwide, thereby contributing to food safety. Triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS systems are utilized for a wide range of applications, including the analysis of drugs and metabolites in blood, analysis of residual pesticides in foods, and detection of environmental pollutants in tap water and environmental water. In recent years, the number of components to detect has increased, while their quantities have become miniscule. Accordingly, in addition to instrument performance, the need has grown for improved operability, simultaneous multi-component analysis, and support for the development of optimal methods. In response to these needs, the company has developed the GCMS-TQ8040. Equipped with new firmware protocols and a method creation program, the system achieves productivity and higher level operability without sacrificing high sensitivity, high selectivity, and high speed. Since sensitivity is not lost, even during simultaneous multi-component analysis, the GCMS-TQ8040 can simultaneously analyze 400 or more components, more than twice the capability of existing models. As a result, analyses that had to be divided across multiple cycles can now be performed in a single cycle. Depending on the conditions, the analysis time can be shortened from 120 minutes to 40 minutes, 1/3 the conventional time. Two New Technologies ­ Smart MRM and Firmware Protocol ­ Enable Simultaneous multi-component analysis without compromising sensitivity. The software now incorporates Smart MRM, a method creation function that automatically sets the optimal measurement time for each component. Furthermore, a new firmware protocol has been introduced to heighten data loading efficiency. Data is only acquired for the elution time for the target components, in accordance with the method file created by Smart MRM. This enables the simultaneous analysis of more than double the number of components for existing models, without compromising sensitivity, even during simultaneous multi-component analysis. With conventional systems, it takes two or three methods to measure 400 pesticide components; now, they can be aggregated in a single method. In addition, by reducing the number of analysis cycles, maintenance frequency and the need to replace columns and other consumables has also been reduced. New functions to support the creation of GC-MS/MS analysis methods. The GCMS solution control software has been improved to achieve smart operability from the user's point of view. The software incorporates a program for supporting method creation and provides tools for optimizing analysis parameters. This allows easy, automatic creation of methods, even in MRM analysis requiring a number of parameter settings. In case of creating MRM method with the entry of new 60 compounds, a manual method creation that took about five hours manually can now be accomplished in just ten minutes. In combination with this database, the GCMS-TQ8040 can be used as a system specialized for the analysis of residual pesticides in foods. This product covers approximately 480 pesticide components used worldwide. Furthermore, it can be customized to suit GC conditions not configured in the database, or to suit additional registration of new compound information. In addition, the Smart MRM function allows automatic creation of analysis methods, thereby reducing the costs and time associated with analysis. Additional databases will be developed for use in other fields, including environmental, pharmaceutical, and the life sciences.
