Shim-pack IC Series
Ion chromatography (IC) is used for analysis of inorganic and organic ions. It is categorized as suppressor IC and non-suppressor IC. Non-suppressor IC is composed of a conventional HPLC system combined with a conductivity detector, while suppressor IC requires an extra suppressor.
|Non-Suppressor Type||Anion Analysis||Shim-pack IC-A1||Capable of analyzing inorganic anions. Compatible with acid or basic mobile phases of wide pH range.|
|Shim-pack IC-A3||Provides outstanding separation efficiency in the analysis of inorganic anions and acid ions, especially when weakly acid mobile phase is used.|
|Cation Analysis||Shim-pack IC-C1||Capable of analyzing cations such as alkaline metal ions, alkali earth metal ions, transition metal ions, rare earth metal ions, and alkyl amines.|
|Shim-pack IC-C4||Capable of simultaneous analysis of alkali metal ions and alkaline earth metal ions. Enhances the separation of sodium and ammonium ions.|
|Suppressor Type||Anion Analysis||Shim-pack IC-SA2||Capable of determining fluoride ions, chloride ions, nitrite ions, bromide ions, nitrate ions, phosphate ions and sulfuric acid ions.|
|Shim-pack IC-SA3||Provides high-resolution performance when analyzing fluoride ions, chloride ions, nitrous acid ions, bromide ions, nitric acid ions, phosphate ions and sulfuric acid ions as well as chlorous acid ions, chloric acid ions and bromic acid ions.|

|Shim-pack IC-C1 PEEK||Sulfone group||10||4.6 x 100||228-33497-91||228-33497-92|
|Shim-pack IC-C4||Carboxyl group||7||4.6 x 150||228-41616-91||228-59900-91
(Cartridge + Holder)
|Shim-pack IC-SA2||Quaternary ammonium group||/||4.0 x 250||228-38983-91||228-38983-92|
|Shim-pack IC-SA3||Quaternary ammonium group||/||4.0 x 250||228-41600-91||228-41600-92|
*1 Shim-pack IC(S) series are for semi-micro LC. PIA-1000 is required. *2 During the analysis of alkali metal ions with the Shim-pack IC-C1, it is recommended to use a pre-column Shim-pack IC-PC1 (P/N：228-17744-91) installed between the liquid pump and the sample injector.

An Improvement in Preparative SFC Efficiency Utilizing Online SFE-SFC System as a “Solid Autosampler”
Preparative SFC is a groundbreaking separation and purification technology. It has a number of advantages in comparison to preparative LC including simplified posttreatment, shorter analysis times, and different separation selectivity. With preparative SFC, the injection of large sample volumes is often required in order to increase the recovered amount.
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.
