Nexera UC Prep
Semi-Preparative Supercritical Fluid Chromatography System
Analytical scale Nexera UC is Here.
Unparalleled performance, unparalleled flexibility
The Nexera™ UC Prep is a new preparative supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) system that offers both the high basic performance developed for the previous Nexera UC model and original state-of-the-art preparative SFC technologies. It resolves a number of issues in preparative tasks, reducing labor and improving efficiency while fitting into pre-existing workflows. Not only does the Nexera UC Prep achieve superior recovery rates for purification, it provides flexible system configurations in a compact design, requiring low installation space and allowing you to maximize lab resources.
Overview of the analytical technologies using supercritical fluid
Green Analytical Chemistry (GAC) is a concept of designing analytical methods that are friendly to both chemists and environment. It is necessary for the GAC-based methods to retain the same analytical performance (e.g., accuracy, sensitivity) as those by their conventional counterparts. Large solvent consumption is particularly concerning in a food analysis where complicated sample extraction and chromatography are routinely practiced. Supercritical fluid is a state of matter just like gas or liquid, and the characteristics of CO2 supercritical fluid are nonflammability, easy handling, and low toxicity, which are relevant to the operator safety. This webinar will show the characteristics of supercritical fluids CO2, the practicality of analytical techniques using it, and the applicability to GAC.

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.
