Shimadzu Advanced i-Series Driver for Multi-Vendor Software - Features
Advanced Real-Time Mobile Phase Monitoring
Making sure you have sufficient mobile phase in the system—before sequence analysis—is critical to keeping your lab running smoothly. If you run out of mobile phase mid-sequence, you have to stop the sequence and take corrective action, resulting in costly workflow delays and potential loss of samples. To overcome this challenge, the Mobile Phase Monitor*1 enables real-time, gravimetric monitoring of mobile phase levels to ensure maximum uptime. Levels for mobile phase or autosampler rinse solution may be monitored in up to six containers*2. A large bottle version is also available. The containers can also be checked remotely from a smart device (PC/iOS/Android).
∗1 Optional ∗2 Monitors up to 6 liquids when using 1-liter bottles, and up to 3 liquids when using large-volume bottles (2- to 5-liter bottles).
Smart Flow Control Protects Columns
UHPLC columns can be damaged by sudden pump starts and extreme gradient changes, especially true with polymeric packings. Smart Flow Control (FlowPilot) increases the flow rate gradually to the method set point according to the status of the column oven, extending the life of your columns.
Considering Instrument Replacement and Method Migration
Migrating a test method (analytical conditions or method) from one instrument to another while obtaining the same chromatogram can be a challenging process. The i-Series is designed with the same internal system volumes as previous Shimadzu systems and competitor systems to ensure system compatibility and data reproducibility. An Analytical Condition Transfer and Optimization (ACTO) function also adjusts gradient start time automatically, so analysts can make adjustments to separations obtained by gradient analysis easily.
* The method transfer tool is not available for the method files of the other vendor software.
