Groundbreaking (U)HPLC Technology – Shimadzu’s New Nexera Series

Setting New Benchmarks in Terms of Intelligence, Efficiency and Design

The new Nexera series of Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatographs incorporates Analytical Intelligence, allowing systems to detect and resolve issues automatically. It makes lab management simple by integrating IoT and device networking, enabling users to easily review instrument status, optimize resource allocation, and achieve higher throughput.

The new systems maximize reliability and uptime with fully unattended workflows that span from startup to shut-down. Operators can set the Nexera to start up at a specified time, so that it can complete auto-purge, equilibration, baseline checks and system suitability in advance, and be ready for analysis before they arrive at the lab. In addition, FlowPilot ramps up the flow rate gradually, reducing the possibility of damage to columns. The Nexera also has auto-diagnostics and auto-recovery capabilities that allow it to monitor pressure fluctuations to check for anomalies.

With remote mobile phase monitoring and integrated consumables management, the system maximizes uptime and reliability. Real-time monitoring of mobile phase levels allows lab personnel to efficiently run batches and respond accordingly if there isn’t enough mobile phase before starting a run. In addition, Nexera tracks consumable usage and sends alerts when parts need replacing, allowing users to keep the system running at peak performance. Analysts can easily confirm parameters and monitor chromatograms in real time directly from the touch-panel controller or a web browser on their smart device.

The Nexera UHPLC increases efficiency by automating workflows and maximizing throughput. The SIL-40 autosampler can process the entire injection cycle time in as little as seven seconds, and a new plate changer design enables non-stop temperature-controlled analysis of thousands of samples. The system automatically blends mobile phases at any set ratio, which speeds up the preparation of buffer solutions and the dilution of solvents, it also reduces waste and labor.

The new elegant, compact design saves valuable bench space. Because it uses 80 % less electricity when on standby, it significantly reduces running costs and supports an environmentally-friendly lab.
