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.

SFC Analytical Condition Parameters is available.
The approach for the SFC analytical condition development process is basically the same as for determining analytical conditions for HPLC.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Forensics / Toxicology, has come out.
This issue focuses on "Forensics / Toxicology", an area where science and technology are particularly important and needed. It starts with two customer interviews.
Analysis of Tea Beverages Using Catechin Analysis Kit
The catechin analysis kit, developed in collaboration with the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO), provides validated test methods for catechins in tea leaves and green tea drinks from sample pre-treatment to HPLC measurement. You can accurately quantitate the content of 11 catechins (including methylated catechins) and caffeine in tea leaves. This article summarizes the results of the catechins quantitation in several beverages: green tea, black tea, and oolong tea.
Extraction and Fractionation of Functional Ingredients with Online SFE-SFC
This article describes a preparative online supercritical fluid extraction-supercritical fluid chromatography (SFE-SFC) system that combines an extraction step using supercritical carbon dioxide as the solvent, a separation step using supercritical carbon dioxide as the mobile phase, and a fractionation step using a preparative-scale fraction collector (FRC).
New UF-Amino Station
UF-Amino Station, which was developed in collaboration with Ajinomoto Co., Ltd., uses a special high-speed and high-separation column and the LCMS-2020 mass spectrometer, to perform batch analyses of 38* amino acids and amino acid-related components in a mere 9 minutes.
What is Multidimensional Chromatography?
Multidimensional chromatography uses a combination of several chromatography techniques, separation modes, and columns to separate multiple components. It achieves significantly higher separation than normal one-dimensional chromatography.
