Nexis GC-2030 – Highest level core performance in the world
Shimadzu’s Nexis GC-2030 gas chromatograph is based on the concept of superior usability and expandability for a wide variety of analytical applications. For these purposes, it can be equipped with various high-sensitivity detectors.
Application Notes
Automated GC/MS Determination of 3-MCPD & Glycidol in Edible Oils
Automated determination of 3-MCPD and Glycidol in edible oils is presented based on a standard method. 3-MCPD is determined by GC/MS as Phenylboronic acid ester. An evaporation step helps reach the required LODs with a standard MSD, while removing excess derivatization reagent for improved GC/MS system uptime and stability.
Key considerations when purchasing an advanced GPC/SEC system
Buying a new piece of laboratory equipment is always a big decision. Many thousands of dollars are often being invested based on relatively little information. We know this can be a difficult decision with a lot riding on it so we’ve put together a list of things to consider when buying an advanced GPC/SEC system. The final decision should depend on your own priorities but this should provide a starting point for the buying process.
Exploring the Value of GPC/SEC in Polysaccharide Characterization
This article examines the information that can be generated using the latest GPC/SEC technology, which brings the sensitivity needed to differentiate similar polysaccharide samples, and the complementary application of flow injection polymer analysis (FIPA), which facilitates application of GPC/ SEC in the manufacturing environment.
