As HPLC applications continue to diversify, flexibility in sample injection is vital. Users want a system with a wide range of features to handle normal analysis to semi-preparative applications. Instruments that can be used not only for sample injection but for sample preparation as well, with higher analytical throughput, are essential for analysts. In order to meet such user requirements, 2 new models, the SIL-I0AF and the SIL-I0AP, have been added to the Shimadzu High Performance Liquid Chromatograph LC-VP series autosampler lineup.
Sample injection time is only 40 seconds for a 10µL injection. When flow line rinsing after injection is included, the unit is ready for the next injection in about 2 minutes. As a result, high throughput repeat analysis is possible, and sample preparations such as dilution and mixing can be performed rapidly. As well as being a multi-purpose autosampler, it is also capable of high speed sample injection. In particular, the time required for sample preparation such as dilution and mixing has been shortened substantially. Furthermore, sample processing capability is greatly enhanced since two 96-well titer plates (standard and deep-well) can be used. Injection repeatability, essential for quantitative analysis, is excellent, producing highly reliable analytical results.
Injection of samples up to 5mL is possible in its standard setup. For this reason, this autosampler is suitable for preparative LCs and sample enrichment systems. Exhibiting high performance in linearity and, repeatability, its quantitative capability is excellent when injecting both large and small volumes.
