Shimadzu Nexera MX Ultra-High Speed LCMS System

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has launched its Nexera MX ultra-high speed LCMS system for multiplex analysis. The system is equipped with Nexera MX dual stream technology, which can process up to twice the number of samples as conventional LCMS systems in the same amount of time, the company said. Shimadzu's high-capacity ultra-fast SIL-30ACMP autosampler enables the Nexera MX's overlap injections, allowing an impressive 20-second analysis cycle while achieving ultra-low carryover.
