Evaporative Light Scattering Detector
Enhanced Sensitivity for Trace Analysis
The ELSD-LTII utilizes a high-efficiency LED and enhanced digital signal treatment to minimize noise and deliver optimum sensitivity for trace analysis. An innovative cell design also reduces band broadening and allows sensitivity levels below 200 picograms. The high-performance optical detection system can also be used for combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening applications. The new Low Temperature Evaporative Light Scattering Detector (ELSD-LTII) is an easy-to-operate, universal detector that identifies analytes with uniform sensitivity regardless of their spectroscopic properties. It is not a spectroscopic detector. Instead, it removes the mobile phase through evaporation and then makes a light scattering measurement of the dried analyte particles.

Cosmetics and Personal Care Products
The environment surrounding cosmetics and personal care products is changing. In addition to serving the original aesthetic purpose, cosmetics are required to be environmentally friendly and impart no adverse effects on animals.
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.
