Analytical HPLC system Shimadzu Prominence XR

Shimadzu, Japan

It is used to analyze sample purity compounds, reaction mixtures and biological samples.

UFLC realizes both high speed and analytical precision/reliability to achieve true analytical productivity enhancement.

Liquid chromatography separation speed becomes faster using analytical columns with ultra-fine particle packing and by increasing the mobile phase flow rate. When the actual analysis time is reduced, other factors required for the analytical cycle time become important, such as time required for autosampler injection movement, gradient delay time and system conditioning time.

Prominence UFLC offers the solution for these factors, greatly reducing the total analysis cycle time, which ultimately enhances laboratory productivity.
