i-Series LC-2060C 3D

Shimadzu has announced the release of its Advanced i-Series liquid chromatography series. The i-Series boasts increased pressure resistance and applies analytical intelligence (AI) automated features to support remote work, such as real-time remote mobile phase monitoring (1 L-5 L bottles), auto-diagnostics and auto-recovery functions, i-PeakFinder for automatic peak integration and many other beneficial features.

Operators can set the i-Series to start up at a specified time, so that it can complete auto-purge, equilibration, baseline checks and system suitability in advance automatically. The smart FlowPilot ramps up the flow rate gradually, reducing the possibility of pressure shock, allowing for column oven to reach a desired temperature. This minimises the risk of damaging the column that could over time affect the data quality, and, therefore, supporting the acquisition of high quality, reproducible data at all times.

Furthermore, AI now allows the system to continually monitor and diagnose itself, where the system can handle any issues during data acquisition without user input, and automatically behave as if it was operated by an expert.

The new i-Series UHPLC system allows for remote system operation and monitoring via web browser or a smart device. Users can now implement methods, set batch analysis, analyse results and create reports without being in front of the instrumentation!

The integrated i-Series UHPLC systems address the demands of a range of users, locations and approaches to analysis while always delivering highly reliable analytical results. The Advanced i-Series is designed for analysing a large number of samples and quickly re-processing data even when working from home. All these features were designed with analysts in mind to help with changing and adapting workflows.
