Shimadzu Corporation has announced the launch of their Nexera Unified Chromatography (UC) system which showcases complete automation and combines automatic sample pre-treatment with chromatographic separation and analysis. The fully automated supercritical fluidic chromatography-based Nexera UC can sequentially analyze up to 48 samples utilizing automatic extraction and chromatographic separation combined with high-sensitivity detection of targets by mass spectrometry.

The Nexera UC system is designed to fulfil the measurement requirements of a wide range of applications including, monitoring pesticides in food products, drug delivery and search for disease biomarkers, additives in forming polymers, drug discovery research in pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals along with cleaning validation.

The Nexera UC system eliminates the need for complicated sample pre-treatment and enables highly reliable and stable analysis of delicate samples that are prone to oxidation or dissociation if exposed to air. Notably, in the analysis of pesticides in food products, the state-of-the-art Nexera UC system takes only five minutes for a complete analysis sample pre-treatment when compared with at least 35 minutes for conventional systems. Furthermore, the fully automated Nexera UC system has a much higher target analyte recovery rate and reduces the possibility of human error during analysis when compared to conventional manual systems.
