New Prominence Ultra Fast LC Delivers Faster Throughput and Accurate Results

Jan 11 2008

USA based, Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc (SSI) has introduced its new Prominence Ultra Fast Liquid Chromatograph (UFLC). The Prominence UFLC System is up to 10 times faster than a conventional HPLC system using a 5-ìm particle column. This performance is achieved while maintaining high-quality analytical results not possible on specialised systems that incorporate design concessions due to extreme pressure limits. Key to the system is the SIL-20A autosampler, capable of a 10-second injection cycle while delivering <0.3 % RSD area repeatability. Prominence UFLC also successfully reduces carryover by inhibiting the adsorption of samples through precise engineering and the prudent choice of wetted materials in the flow path. The durability of the injection mechanism is evident from 100,000 cycle tests showing no degradation in performance.

With Shim-pack XR Series columns, Prominence UFLC can provide high-speed, high-resolution analysis at pressures below 30 MPa (300 kgf/cm2). The columns are available with inner diameters of 2, 3 or 4.6 mm and lengths of 30, 50, 75 or 100 mm, allowing FAST LC to be performed on conventional HPLC equipment.

With its micro-plunger design, the LC-20AD solvent-delivery system provides unmatched gradient resolution and reproducibility, and has a
delivery range of 100 nL/min to 10 mL/min. Prominence UFLC is versatile and can accept an assortment of flow-control valves and a column switching system, allowing it to be used for many other applications, such as two-dimensional HPLC or micro to semi-micro analysis.
