High Performance Liquid Chromatography System (HPLC) / model "Chromaster"

High Performance Liquid Chromatography System (HPLC) / model

HPLC for today and tomorrow. The excellent reproducibility made possible by the pump and autosampler and the excellent stability of the column oven and detector are the two performance capabilities supporting data reliability:
The Hitachi reputation for instrument robustness and reliability continues with the Chromaster, which is made using stronger materials and is manufactured with Hitachi's strict quality control standards.



Features :
Modules available : Isocratic Pump which can be upgraded to quaternary by installing gradient kit and degasser. Manual Injector or Autosampler (120 samples). Column Oven with cooling facility. UV, UV-Visible, Fluorescence, RI, Diode Array or MS Detector.


Pump- Improved gradient performance and the excellent flow rate precision : The Chromaster has a new low-pressure mode called High Frequent Mode (HFM), which utilizes a double switching function of proportioning valves. HFM and the Hitachi high speed realtime feedback control system, greatly suppress liquid pulsation for improved reproducibility of gradient and retention times.


Autosampler - Excellent injection volume precision and low carry-over :
The newly adopted high-precision syringe drive unit provides excellent injection volume precision. Hitachi has eliminated the dead volume in the autosampler flow path, which can cause carry-over and adopted a pumping method that washed the needle outer wall. The result is an accurate autosampler with extremely low carry-over.


Column Oven - Pre-heating function and a wide temperature control range : The block-type pre-heating function based on Peltier heating and cooling control delivers excellent symmetric and sharply peak shape. The oven can regulate temperature from 15 degree below ambient temperature to 850C..


Diode Array Detector - Excellent qualitative analysis performance, and extremely low noise and low drift : With a wide wavelength range (190 nm to 900 nm) and excellent resolution (1,024-bit diode array), the Chromaster Diode array detector delivers the world's highest level of high-resolution analyses. With a low noise level , the Diode array detector is capable of supporting high-sensitivity analyses. The adoption of a variable air-volume fan and the provision of a specially designed cover on the spectrometer minimize the influence of temperature fluctuations around the optical system and achieve a further reduction in drift.


UV and UV-VIS Detectors - Two-wavelength, simultaneous high-sensitivity detection of drug impurity : The two-wavelength detection function permits measurements at short data acquisition interval of 400 ms and 800 ms per wavelength, resulting in chromatograms with fine, sharp peak shapes.


Thermostat flow cell : The thermostat flow cell minimizes the influence of ambient temperature changes.
As a result, the baseline of detector is steady and data reliability is improved.
