Technology to direct automatic analysis of target compounds in a complex sample
The Nexera™ UC On-Line SFE-SFC system integrates technology for combining supercritical fluid extraction (SFE*) and supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC*) in one online system, so that the entire process from extraction of target compounds to acquisition of data can be performed completely automatically.
By using the On-Line SFE-SFC, pretreatment to analysis can be automated, creating advantages such as shorten the pretreatment time, and getting the highly accurate analyzing data.
＊Supercritical Fluid have characteristics of both the gas and liquid.
Supercritical Fluid Extraction is a extraction method using supercritical fluid as solvent.
Supercritical Fluid Chromatography is chromatography using a mobile phase including a supercritical fluid.
Comparison with traditional pretreatment method and Nexera UC On-Line SFE-SFC system of analyzing pesticides residues in food
When using the On-Line SFE-SFC, the complex pretreatment process such as reagent addition and centrifugation that are required for traditional method can be simplified improving the operation efficiency.
Hundreds of compounds are simultaneously analyzed with Nexera UC. These include pesticides that are usually analyzed with LC and LC/MS/MS or GC and GC/MS/MS. Nexera UC enables analysis of compounds over a wide polarity range.
