Strumentazione Analitica



High-Sensitivity & High-Speed Scanning at 30,000 u/sec

Simultaneous Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis

Simultaneous High-Speed Screening of 12 Toxicological Drugs

The LCMS-8050 is capable of simultaneously obtaining both qualitative and quantitative information in a single analysis. Acquisition occurs so rapidly that MS/MS scans and MRM measurements can be performed concurrently while maintaining quantitative accuracy. MS/MS scans are usable and reliable because even at 30,000 u/sec, Shimadzu uses a 0.1 u scan step.

High-Sensitivity & High-Speed Positive/Negative Ionization Switching in 5 msec

Just One Minute per Analysis

A Case Study Using High-Speed Positive/Negative Ionization Switching

When performing simultaneous positive/negative ion measurements of multiple components, the proper acquisition of sharp UHPLC peaks depends on rapid polarity switching. The LCMS-8050 minimizes losses due to polarity switching and ensures the collection of sufficient data points for even the narrow peaks obtained with UHPLC, recording accurate peak shapes and allowing excellent reproducibility.



High-Sensitivity & High-Speed MRM at 555 ch/sec

Detect Target Compounds at Trace-Level Concentrations

Simultaneous Analysis of 29 Pesticides for Water Quality Analysis

The LCMS-8050 is capable of simultaneously acquiring 555 MRM transitions per second while maintaining accuracy and precision. Sufficient data points can be collected for quantitation ions, reference ions, and internal standard ions even in chromatographic regions with unresolved peaks. The high sensitivity of the LCMS-8050 allows for trace-level analysis, such as pesticides in drinking water, without the need for sample pre-concentration. This high sensitivity is maintained even when monitoring numerous MRM channels.

When purifying target compounds from extracts of natural products and synthetic substances via preparative LC, powderization of the target compounds of the fraction is an important process. Ordinarily, it takes time to purify and powderize the target compounds obtained by the preparative LC. It is also difficult to recover high-purity powder.
The Crude2Pure system, which is based on ground-breaking purification methods, provides a new approach that reduces the work of the purification/powderization process after preparation.

Crude2Pure Automated Purification LC SystemTM

The Crude2Pure system consists of a trapping system equipped with a dedicated Shim-pack C2P-H column for trapping and concentrating the target compound, and a recovery system that automatically powderizes and recovers the trapping target compound.
Single and multi-system configurations are available to meet specific operational requirements.

Retention and Concentration of Compounds —Crude2Pure Trapping System—

Ordinarily, when removing solvents, it is necessary to evaluate detailed conditions for each compound. With the Crude2Pure, however, simply place the preparative LC fraction in the autosampler, and enter the compound information into the interactive software to automatically trap the compound. In addition, the newly developed Shim-pack C2P-H trapping column can be used with a wide range of organic solvents and pH conditions, and provides high loading and high recovery rates. Further, trapping conditions are determined from the information on retention times obtained during fractionation, so there is no need to evaluate conditions individually. This eliminates the need to perform difficult preliminary evaluations to determine trapping conditions.

Powderizing Compounds —Crude2Pure Recovery System—

This stage recovers the target compound trapped in the trapping column and then simultaneously powderizes it. In addition, it can perform desalination and salt substitution as is, prior to recovery.
The sequence from pretreatment to powderization takes approximately three to four hours, which saves a great deal of time in comparison to centrifugal concentration or freeze drying. The vial in which the powderized target compound is recovered can be used as a storage container as is, eliminating the need to transfer the samples. Furthermore, adding the changer option increases the throughput of drying and powderization via 6-line parallel processing (multi system).


Flexible System Configurations


Basic Crude2Pure System (Single Recovery System)

This is the simplest Crude2Pure system. The trapping system can process up to four samples and the recovery system two samples.
(Expansion to a multi system is possible.)


Multi Recovery System Supporting Multi-sample Processing


This is recommended for multi-sample processing. The sample concentrated by the single trapping system is processed continuously by the multi recovery system. The recovery system accommodates up to 48 samples. The dedicated software, which is compatible with open access, allows setting of the trapping columns to the recovery system during operation.



Expansion from the Basic System (Multi Trapping / Recovery System)


If more throughput is required, the trapping system and the recovery system can be expanded to a multi system by adding rack changers, etc.
