Extremely Low Sample Carryover
Resolves a major problem with high-sensitivity analyses
Basic compounds and hydrophobic compounds readily adsorb to the sample
path. Prominence restricts sample carryover to extremely low limits to avoid a
variety of problems that such compounds can cause. In addition, the
multi-rinse mode achieves optimal rinsing for proteins and other sample
components that are difficult to wash away.
Prominence offers the optimal system for analyses demanding high
sensitivity, such as impurity analysis and LC/MS.

Solvent Delivery Units
LC-20AD
Superior Solvent Delivery Performance
The LC-20AD offers the fastest solvent delivery performance in the world. With an
automatic pulsation-correction mechanism and high-speed micro plunger driving,
it achieves pulse-free solvent delivery. Thanks to improvements in solvent-delivery
control firmware, solvent-delivery performance in the micro-flow-rate range below
50 µL/min has been significantly improved.
LC-20AB
Binary Solvent Delivery Unit
The LC-20AB is a binary, high-pressure gradient solvent delivery unit that
incorporates two sets of LC-20AD systems. Its space-saving design can be used to
create a two-solvent high-pressure gradient.
LC-20AT
Superior Maintainability
The LC-20AT possesses a high level of maintainability while delivering high
performance. The ability to remove bubbles has been improved by modifying the
pump-head structure and the flow line.
Low-Pressure Gradient Unit
Accurate Gradient Solvent Delivery
The optional low-pressure gradient unit can be incorporated in the
By harmonizing two solvent delivery systems, the LC-20AB delivers
LC-20AD/20AT, enabling gradient elution in a compact space with
a small void volume. Automatic matching adjustment of the
solenoid valve and pump gives concentration accuracies of ±1.0%.

LC-20AR / 20AP
Supporting from Analytical to Preparative Scales
The preparative LC system supports both analysis and fractionation (including gradient analysis and
fractionation), which permits efficient scaling up with a single instrument and single operating environment.
The solvent delivery unit LC-20AR can handle flow rates ranging from those used in accurate analytical scale
to those used in semi-preparative. It enables semi-preparative recycling by using a recycle kit.
The high solvent delivery performance of the LC-20AP permits an accurate and efficient environment for
scaling up, in both the preparative and analytical flow rate ranges.
The LC-20AP Quaternary which is combined the LC-20AP with a dedicated FCV-200AL low-pressure gradient
unit, allows gradient fractionation to be performed in a single unit, thereby saving equipment costs.
High-Precision Delivery Performance
Supports from Parameter
Investigation to Scaling Up
Typical values of the total component weight for a single injection
performed by a 250 mm column, where the target component is
(1) highly soluble in the mobile phase, (2) separated from
contaminating components, and (3) subjected to ion suppression,
are indicated on the right. With isocratic elution, these values are
basically proportional to the volume of the column.
A redesigned plunger actuation mechanism and improved pulse
correction and check valves offers significantly improved flow rate
accuracy and flow rate precision. High retention time
reproducibility for analytical flow rates improves reliability when
scaling up and verifying purity.

The DGU-20A3R/20A5R is an on-line degassing unit that uses fluoroethylene membrane. The internal
capacity is small at 0.4 mL, only 1/25th of that for existing Shimadzu models, and the waiting time at
mobile-phase replacement or stabilization can be significantly reduced. The degassing efficiency has
also been improved, ensuring thorough degassing even at high flow rates.

Autosamplers
SIL-20A / 20AHT
Supporting High-Throughput Analysis
The SIL-20A is a total-volume injection-type Autosampler that enables high-speed
injection and multi-sample processing. It was designed to ensure greater stability,
with improved durability attained through modifications in valves and sample loops.
SIL-20AC / 20ACHT
Equipped with Cooling Function
The SIL-20AC is equipped with a sample cooler that incorporates a
dehumidifying function. Samples can be maintained at a fixed temperature in the
range of 4 to 40°C. The high cooling speed makes it possible to keep easily
decomposed sample constituents in a stable condition.
Rack Changer II
Supporting Multi-sample Processing
Maximum 12 microplates can be set. The robot arm in the rack changer
automatically loads both micro-plates and racks for standard 1.5 mL vials into the
autosamplers. It is a powerful tool for the analysis of a large number of samples.
Sample Carryover Reduced to an Absolute Minimum
Adsorption of sample constituents has been reduced to an
absolute minimum by using a special processing technology
for the sampling needle (patent pending) and rethinking the
structure of the needle seal and the materials used in flow-line
parts. As a result, there is hardly any sample carryover. Also,
the adoption of a PEEK rotor seal allows use over a wide pH
range, from strongly acidic conditions to strongly basic
conditions. Using the optional rinse kit (228-43042-91)
makes it possible to rinse the sampling needle with two
different solvents, selected in accordance with the purpose.

High Throughput
Only 10 seconds* are required for sample injection.
High-speed vertical motion of the needle enables
ultra-high-speed sample processing, which was considered
impossible with conventional autosamplers. Using in
combination with a high-speed separation column makes an
analysis cycle of less than one minute a reality.
*Specified condition
Precise Sample Injection
Greater accuracy has been attained by incorporating a
high-performance sampling device that can measure out the
samples with high precision. The design reflects an emphasis
on basic performance as well as functionality. Also, using
direct injection means valuable samples are not wasted.

High-Sensitivity Analysis of Anthracene
Cell Temperature Control Further Enhances Reproducibility (RF-20A XS )
The fluorescence intensity drops as the temperature rises. A fluctuation
of about 1°C near room temperature may result in approximately 5%
intensity fluctuations for some compounds.
To prevent this, the RF-20Axs features a temperature-controlled cell
with a cooling function. It maintains a constant detector cell
temperature, even if the room temperature fluctuates significantly, to
ensure superb reproducibility with no drop in sensitivity.

Utility of Four-Wavelength Measurement Function
Using detection at a single wavelength when performing
multicomponent simultaneous analysis of components with
different optimal detection wavelengths necessitates sacrificing
sensitivity for certain components.
The RF-20A/20Axs detectors eliminate this issue by incorporating a
four-wavelength measurement function that permits detection of
mV
each component at the optimal wavelength.
Detection using wavelength switching in the left-hand diagram
exhibits incomplete separation in area (1) and one peak of reduced
size in area (2). In such a case, setting up to four optimal
wavelengths enhances the quantitative analysis accuracy by
reducing the effects of adjacent peaks and improving sensitivity.

Reproducibility in Anion Analysis
(Lower concentration limits of quantitative analysis range
for 2001 edition of Water Supply Testing Methods, Japan)
Perform Analysis with Highest Sensitivity
The sensitivity of detectors that monitor weak electrical signals from analytes is affected by the
inherent electrical noise of the detector itself. With the CDD-10AVP, electronic parts with low
electrical noise are used, and the layout of the electronic components has been optimized in order
to reduce noise levels, thereby attaining an extremely high level of sensitivity. Combining the
CDD-10AVP with a suppressor unit makes it possible to perform ultra-high sensitivity ion analysis
on the order of 0.25 µg / L (detection limit: S / N = 3) for Cl−.
Applicable to Both Suppressor and Non-Suppressor
Systems (available in limited regions)
When used with a CTO-20AC, expansion to a full suppressor system can be realized by adding the
suppressor option. Suppressor functions can be disabled when necessary, making it possible to
switch between anion analysis using a suppressor system and cation analysis using a
non-suppressed system. In addition to a single flow-line system, expansion to a dual flow-line
system is also possible, allowing the creation of a variety of system configurations. For example,
simultaneous analysis of anions and cations using a combination of suppressed and
non-suppressed detection is possible.

Shimadzu’s post-column pH-buffered electroconductivity method (Patent No. 2017498) enables
selective, high-sensitivity analysis of organic acids. Even samples that traditionally require
time-consuming pretreatment to handle unwanted constituents can be analyzed after simple
pretreatment procedures such as dilution and filtration. The level of reliability attained in
quantitative analysis is much higher than that attained conventionally with a low-wavelength UV
method or a simple conductivity method. Superior linearity enables batch analysis in cases where
constituent concentrations differ greatly and, consequently, helps reduce analysis time.

Evaporative Light-Scattering Detector
ELSD-LT ll
Highly Versatile Detection Method
Not all compounds have a chromophore or other such structural property that allows the use of an
absorbance detector. Refractive Index Detection (RID) is one option but it suffers from the inability to
run gradient analysis. Evaporative Light Scattering Detection (ELSD) is a perfect alternative to RID as it
is more rugged, quicker to stabilize, and gradient compatible. ELSD is ideal for applications like testing
the purity of compounds, measuring the molecular weight distribution of synthetic polymers, and
analyzing natural substances.

Detects Most Compounds
Chromatogram of Non-Chromophoric Compound
With the exception of some highly volatile compounds, the ELSD-LT II is able to detect almost any
compound. Unlike traditional absorbance detectors (UV-Vis, PDA, etc.), sensitivity is not
dependent on the physical or structural properties of the compound, but rather the absolute
quantity of the solute passing through the detector cell. Therefore, it is especially useful for
detecting unknown or breakdown compounds and/or validating purity of a target compound. By
this mechanism of detection the ELSD-LT II is truly a universal detector.

The ELSD-LT II detector uses a unique nebulizer and drift tube design to achieve stable and
low-temperature evaporation of mobile phases, making it possible to analyze semi-volatile and/or
thermally unstable compounds.
High-sensitivity detection is achieved by focusing the sample at the detection point with assist gas
flow. The ELSD-LT II offers high sensitivity with this low-temperature evaporation technology and
superb detection technology. A smaller volume nebulizer and drift tube further improve sensitivity.
