Release of the new Shimadzu triple quad LCMS-8060NX

We are pleased to announce the release of the next version of the successful platform LCMS TQ together with the latest version of LabSolutions LCMS version.
The LCMS-8060NX is the crowning achievement of Shimadzu’s triple quadrupole MS range, inheriting its excellent speed and world-class sensitivity from the LCMS-8060 while displaying improvements in robustness and ease-of-use. Taking into account recent advancements in workflow and increasing demand for cost reductions, key customer needs for LC/MS systems are expanding from sensitivity to robustness, operability and efficiency. This instrument improves efficiency of the overall analysis workflow from analysis preparations to data processing, meeting customer needs through increased productivity.

1) World-class sensitivity and speed
The LCMS-8060NX inherits the world-class sensitivity and speed of the LCMS-8060. It boasts a polarity switching time of 5 ms including stabilization time (UFswitching), ultra-high scan speed of 30,000 u/s (UFscanning) and max. 555 ch/s MRM measurements (with min. dwell time 0.8 ms and min. pause time 1 ms). The desolvation efficiency has been improved through increasing the heating efficiency of the ESI heater and the maximum flow rate of the heating gas. This means that a wide variety of compounds can be analyzed with optimum ionization conditions and high sensitivity.

2) High robustness minimizes downtime
The newly developed IonFocus unit introduces ions into the detector with greater efficiency while leaving contaminants away to reduce noise and provide more stable data. The new ion guide UF-Qarray II (in LCMS-8060/8060NX) and the QF-Lens II increase the robustness of the instrument while maintaining a high ion transmission rate.
The UF-QarrayⅡ prevents build-up of detritus on electrodes. The design retains the high frequency quadrupole field with high focusing power while improving the shape of its parts to enhance robustness. In addition, the UF-Lens II has a new function to remove unnecessary ions, protecting the QP rods from contamination and minimizing instrument downtime.

3) Excellent operability improves overall workflow efficiency
The LCMS-8060NX includes various Analytical Intelligence features to improve the quality of the user’s analysis and the efficiency of the workflow. For example, in the newly developed ion source, the IonFocus unit, the initial parameters have been adjusted according to know-how accumulated by Shimadzu. This allows excellent results to be obtained for a wide range of compounds displaying varying properties without the bother of investigating analysis conditions. In addition, start-up and shutdown can be carried out automatically at a specified time with LabSolutions Connect MRM, improving workflow efficiency and saving power. Using LabSolutions Insight, significant time savings can be achieved in data analysis of a large number of samples and/or target compounds. If the instrument is combined with a new Nexera series LC, the workflow can be further improved with automated features from analysis preparations through method settings to instrument shutdown.

Release of Ion Chromatograph HIC-ESP with New Anion Suppressor ICDS-40A

Shimadzu is pleased to inform you about the European release of the HIC-ESP, an anion analysis ion chromatograph equipped with the new anion suppressor ICDS-40A.

The HIC-ESP for anion analysis is equipped with a new suppressor and employs the slim column oven CTO-40S, contributing to the effective use of laboratory space with a compact installation width.

The ICDS-40A is an electrodialysis-type anion suppressor using an ion-exchange membrane. The continuous regeneration system eliminates the need to switch between analysis and regeneration processes, contributes to shortening the analysis cycle time and provides a simple system configuration.

Key features

  • Newly designed suppressor for anion analysis with highly effective ion-exchange performance

The ICDS-40A replaces sodium ions in the eluent with hydrogen ions with high efficiency using hydrogen ions obtained by electrolyzing water. This reduces the electrical conductivity of the eluent at the time of detection, enabling the analysis of anions with high sensitivity. 

  • Smaller peak dispersion

The ICDS-40A has a small volume and can detect each ion with high sensitivity.

Also, the water dip is small, so it is possible to accurately measure fluorine peaks that elute early in a chromatogram.

  • Small footprint 

The HIC-ESP ion chromatography system combines with the Nexera slim oven CTO-40S for a compact installation width of 420 mm. wich enables a space-saving installation.

Hoe weet u zeker dat uw pipet goed functioneert?

Voor betrouwbare en nauwkeurige meetresultaten moeten uw pipetten periodiek gekalibreerd worden. Maar hoe weet u zeker dat deze in de tussenliggende periode ook goed functioneert?

METTLER TOLEDO biedt u nu een innovatieve oplossing om binnen 60 seconden de prestatie van uw pipetten te valideren.

RAININ SmartCheck™

Deze nieuwe technologie biedt u de mogelijkheid om op snelle en praktische wijze te controleren of uw pipet nauwkeurig werkt. Doseer vloeistof in de vloeistofkamer en de SmartCheck bepaalt automatisch het testvolume van de pipet. Binnen 60 seconden wordt een pass/fail resultaat gegeven, zodat u weet of uw pipet nog binnen de ISO 8655 gestelde toleranties presteert. SmartCheck is geschikt voor zowel mono- en multichannel pipetten, ongeacht het merk!

SmartCheck is snel en eenvoudig in gebruik, zodat prestatiecontroles gemakkelijk onderdeel worden van uw dagelijkse routines en dankzij de kleine afmetingen (slechts 10 cm x 10 cm) neemt de SmartCheck weinig ruimte in beslag. Zo voorkomt u OOS-resultaten, dubbel werk en onverwachte kosten. Bespaar tijd en geld door het risico op onnauwkeurige meetresultaten te minimaliseren!

SmartCheck is niet alleen een efficiënte oplossing, het is ook de enige automatische oplossing voor ISO 8655 pipet verificatie. SmartCheck neemt volumetrische metingen met behulp van de gravimetrische methode en berekent willekeurige en systematische fouten op basis van vier metingen. Vervolgens wordt de meetonzekerheid van het volume bepaald, welke vergeleken wordt met de vastgestelde toleranties. Op basis daarvan geeft de SmartCheck een duidelijke pass/fail uitslag binnen 60 seconden.
