First UHPLC Instrumentation Designed to Support Remote Working Launched

Shimadzu has announced the release of its Advanced i-Series liquid chromatography series. The i-Series boasts increased pressure resistance and applies analytical intelligence (AI)

automated features to support remote work, such as real-time remote mobile phase monitoring (1 L-5 L

bottles), auto-diagnostics and

auto-recovery functions, i-PeakFinder for automatic peak integration and many other beneficial features.

Operators can set the i-Series to start up at a specified time, so that it can complete auto-purge, equilibration, baseline checks and system suitability in advance automatically. The smart FlowPilot ramps up the flow rate gradually, reducing the possibility of pressure shock, allowing for column oven to reach a desired temperature. This minimises the risk of damaging the column that could over time affect the data quality, and, therefore, supporting the acquisition of high quality, reproducible data at all times.

Furthermore, AI now allows the system to continually monitor and diagnose itself, where the system can handle any issues during data acquisition without user input, and automatically behave as if it was operated by an expert.

The new i-Series UHPLC system allows for remote system operation and monitoring via web browser or a smart device. Users can now implement methods, set batch analysis, analyse results and create reports without being in front of the instrumentation!

The integrated i-Series UHPLC systems address the demands of a range of users, locations and approaches to analysis while always delivering highly reliable analytical results. The Advanced i-Series is designed for analysing a large number of samples and quickly re- processing data even when working from home. All these features were designed with analysts in mind to help with changing and adapting workflows.

Multi-angle Light Scattering Detector for Accurate Molecular Measurement

The Advanced i-Series liquid chromatography series.

Over the past four decades, light scattering has become widely used for molecular weight and size measurement of proteins and polymers. However, the most recent and ever more demanding characterisation needs require to overcome the

The LenS3 MALS detector provide a direct and accurate measurement of molecular weight, even for oligomers and low dn/dc samples.

limitations of the various traditional technologies in light scattering detection.

The Tosoh LenS3® Multi-Angle Light Scattering (MALS) detector features an elongated flow path geometry that maximises scattered light collection, while the non-refractive material of the chamber eliminates noise from stray light. The advanced optical design also provides exceptional signal-to-noise at the crucial extreme angles for molecular weight and size measurements.

The resulting enhanced capabilities and unprecedented sensitivity of the LenS3 MALS detector provide a direct and accurate measurement of molecular weight, even for oligomers and low dn/dc samples. Moreover, the range of radius of gyration (Rg) determination by light scattering is extended down to a few nanometers for the very first time.
