The Lux line of polysaccharide-based columns is suitable for the identification and resolution of enantiomers. Lux columns are offered with two chiral stationary phases (CSPs), both of which use coated derivatised cellulose as the chiral selector. The two phases combine to create a dependable screening set with a wide range of selectivity. The Lux line is based on chiral technology that Phenomenex acquired along with the company Sepaserve.
Rigaku has introduced a compact, fully integrated high-resolution X-ray diffraction system, the Rigaku Rapid II. The latest member of the Rapid family of large area curved imaging plate (IP) detectors, the Rapid II combines every component needed for a high-performance X-ray diffraction system, delivering no compromise performance for applications ranging from applied crystallography to chemical crystallography.
The TracerturboSD handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instrument uses a silicon drift detector (SDD) for improved speed, sensitivity and resolution. Bruker’s XFlash SDD, previously available only in high-performance laboratory XRF instruments, now offers speed and analytical specificity when integrated into the handheld TracerturboSD.
The 6230 Accurate-Mass time-of-flight (TOF) LC/MS system can detect and identify compounds in amounts smaller than 2 pg, making it suitable for food safety, toxicology and other measurements where minute amounts of compounds must be identified.
The SC-CSRS 300 Salt Converter Cation Self-Regenerating Suppressor is an eluent suppressor that can be used in place of a CSRS 300 or CAES cation suppressor in cases where increased sensitivity is required for the determination of ammonium and amines using conductivity detection. The design of the SC-CSRS 300 provides increased backpressure tolerance and maximum leak tolerance. The regenerant sweep-out design provides low noise and fast start-up.
The Assist is an automated standalone accessory that is synchronised with the spectrometer and autosampler of an ICP-OES or ICP-MS instrument system. It consists of programmable dual syringe drives coordinated with an integrated valve system. The Assist delivers high levels of accuracy, stability and sample throughput by controlling the delivery of both sample and internal standard, eliminating the inaccuracies and pulsations caused by peristaltic pumps.
A Thulium-based, higher precision X-ray analysis technique is suitable for assaying nickel in ore. Currently, production criteria is controlled using quantitative X-ray analysis with a chemical assay reference method (Wet Chemical DMG), which tests the ultimate purity of the nickel ore or concentrate. The current X-ray technique, however, has proven to have accuracy limitations resulting in the loss of potential revenue that can be realised from production. Moreover, the chemical DMG method is relatively expensive, complex and time consuming with the chemicals being dangerous to operators.
The DynaPro NanoStar from Wyatt Technology is a dynamic light-scattering instrument that is used for the analysis of protein solutions, promiscuous inhibitors, buffers or other products in solution.
Waters has an addition to its line of XBridge analytical columns. The XBridge HILIC Columns provide improved retention of very polar compounds that are otherwise difficult to retain by traditional reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography.
