Catechin Analysis Kit
Supports Fast and Convenient Measurements of the Functional Components in Foods
The National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) and Shimadzu have been investigating fast, convenient, and accurate methods for analyzing foods' functional components for its research and social implementation purposes. This kit provides the validated test method from sample pretreatment through a run of HPLC, developed in cooperation with NARO, for measuring the catechins in tea leaves. Reliable catechin values can be easily obtained, and the quantitative results are shown immediately in a report. This kit strongly supports data acquisition required for applications and the development of functional foods, and can even be used for quality control of tea products.
News / Events
Shimadzu has released the Catechin Analysis Kit
The National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) and Shimadzu are studying fast, convenient, and accurate methods for analyzing the functional components in foods for purposes of data analysis and social implementation.
Shimadzu has updated the LabSolutions MD
LabSolutions MD uses an “Analytical Quality by Design” (AQbD) approach for achieving efficient method development by designing analysis methods based on science and risk.
In order to reduce plastic waste, the development of eco-friendly alternative materials is being promoted. As an alternative, biomass plastics and biodegradable plastics are becoming more widely available. Biodegradable Plastics are plastics that are decomposed into low-molecular compounds by microorganisms in the environment. So they break down easily in nature, which is an opposite characteristic of petroleum-based plastics.
Shimadzu has released the Nexera lite inert
Nexera lite inert is a robust HPLC system that eliminates the risk of corrosion by high-salt mobile phases and sample adsorption onto metal surfaces. It improves the data quality of protein analysis in biological samples with superior reproducibility, without any special considerations for stable and long-term use.
Shimadzu has updated the i-Series, High Performance Liquid Chromatograph
Amid increasing calls for improved work efficiency and a more flexible working style, ideas of LC analysis are changing. The time has come for an HPLC that delivers rugged, reliable results with less frequent interaction by the analyst. The new, integrated i-Series LC system maintains the excellent performance of its predecessor while addressing the need for automation efficiency.
Shimadzu has updated the Nexera-e
Comprehensive 2D-LC methodology is a paradigm shift in liquid chromatography separation. By combining two independent separation modes orthogonally in combination with a dual-loop/dual-valve alternate switching design, the highest possible peak capacity is achieved.
The new Nexera-e is the ideal solution for the separation and characterization of most challenging and complex samples. It is particularly useful for the analysis of pharmaceutical impurities, proteolytic digests, food extracts, natural products and synthetic polymers.
