Shimadzu introduced this week its Nexera ultra high-performance liquid chromatography system.

The instrument's newly designed Nexera SIL-30AC autosampler minimizes carryover and features an injection speed of 10 seconds as well as an overlapping injection function to reduce cycle times. In addition, the system's LC-30AD pump uses an automatic pulsation-correction mechanism and high-speed parallel microplunger design to allow for pulse-free solvent delivery and excellent retention time reproducibility, the company said.

Thermo Fisher Scientific this week released its Thermo Scientific Pierce Fe-NTA Phosphopeptide Enrichment Kit.

The kit includes high-capacity Fe-NTA spin columns and buffer for analyzing 30 protein digests, with each column capable of enriching up to 150 micrograms of phosphopeptides for mass spectrometric analysis, the company said.

Decodon released this week its Delta2D version 4.1 software for the analysis of 2D gels.
