Shimadzu LC-20 HPLC with diode array detector (DAD) SPD- M 20 A
The Shimadzu HPLC LC20 AD is equipped with a Spectrophotometric detector (SPD). The HPLC is an analytical instrument in which a liquid mobile phase transports a sample through a column containing a stationary phase. The interaction of the sample with the stationary phase selectively retains individual chemical species and permits the separation of thesample components.
HPLC can be used for separation & quantification of non-volatile organic compounds: flavonoids, poliphenolic acids, ,catechin, coumarin, sterols etc.
UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, Shimadzu, UV-1800
Designed in accordance with the governing European and Japanese Pharmacopoeia, the new UV-1800 UV-VIS spectrophotometer achieves a resolution of 1 nm, the highest in its class, in a compact design. Offering an array of user-friendly features, the UV-1800 can be used as either a stand-alone or as a PC-controlled instrument.
Shimadzu IRAffinity-1 FTIR Spectrophotometer
Shimadzus designed the IRAffinity-1 Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer with high-throughput optics and a dynamic alignment mechanism to increase sensitivity, stability and usability. The IRAffinity-1 is ideal for high-precision infrared analysis to confirm, identify and detect compounds and its functional groups.
