Shimadzu Corporation has released the Nexera Mikros, a micro flow rate-compatible liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer system. The Nexera Mikros maintains the durability and operability of liquid chromatograph mass spectrometer (LC-MS) systems to date while providing greater than 10 times the sensitivity, according to the company.

In recent years, in the field of pharmaceutical development, analysis is sometimes performed on trace amounts of components in blood. Examples include studies of the pharmacokinetics of new administered drugs, and hormones within living organisms. In such cases, LC-MS systems compatible with nano flow rates have been utilised, in order to improve the efficiency of the intake of target components to the mass spectrometer. However, nano flow rate-compatible LC-MS systems had room for improvement in terms of instrument operability and processing speed, such as a tendency for pipes to clog, difficulty discovering liquid leaks and the hours required for the analysis of a single sample.

The Nexera Mikros can accommodate a wide range of flow rates, from the semi-micro flow rates (100 to 500 µL/min), which are often used for analysis in existing systems, to micro flow rates (1 to 10 µL/min). This system establishes both durability and operability while enabling analysis with greater than 10 times the existing sensitivity. Through this product, Shimadzu is contributing to improving the productivity at pharmaceutical companies and clinical consignee research organisations.
