Very robust and reliable HPLC
Application Area:Amino acid analysis in Plasma and Urine
"The Hitachi LaChrom Elite is a truly robust system. It requires very little maintenance compared to other HPLC systems. It is reliable, accurate and in the long term a cheap system to maintain."

"My job is as a professor in university for teaching and research. I have over 100 students obtaining their degrees in masters or doctorate degrees, in addition to the normal teaching courses in instrumental methods in chemical analysis, separation science, technology, environmental chemistry and food analysis. The product is good for my teaching work and my research related environmental analysis for air, water, as well as the soil samples, forensic analysis, food safety analysis such as pesticide residuals. All my students including graduate and undergraduate students give the instrument positive recommendations over other instruments. Beside the instrument applicability and competitive price, after sales service is also available all the time even at night in the Taichung area in my country."

Designed to meet the challenges of today's laboratory environment, fast results and demanding workload, LaChrom Elite® couples automated tasks with innovative design. Control by Empower™ 2 software facilitates regulatory compliance
• System synchronization, Pump-Autosampler Synchronization (PASS) This unique feature means that each injection occurs at exactly the same point in every pump cycle ensuring the best in retention time reproducibility
• Electronic Pulse Isolation and Compensation (EPIC) Using two pressure sensors and closed-loop feedback between pumps provides the ultimate in smooth, precise solvent flow
• Interchangeable pump heads Depending on your application you can switch pump heads for optimal performance for flow rates from 0.001 to 10 mL/min
• Built-in degasser A built-in degasser saves bench space and assures trouble-free operation and precise solvent flow
• Large sample capacity 200 standard vials or 3 microtiter plates come standard, optional peltier cooling is also available
• Programmable wavelength switching Optimize peak detection by changing detection parameters during a run for the compound you are interested in
• Solvent pre-heating and cooling A solvent pre-heating module is employed to reduce temperature gradients inside the HPLC column
• Excellent signal-to-noise for low detection limits and better quantitative reproducibility
• Fast detection response with low noise for high-speed chromatography such as with Chromolith columns
• Sample needle in the flow path design ensures the lowest carry-over and best injection profile
• Electronic maintenance log book for each module automatically records valve usage, seal replacement date, audit trails for method changes, total solvent flow between seals, lamp usage, etc.
• Built-in leak sensors for each module ensure a safe system
• Built-in Hg lamp for automatic calibration and validation
• Lamp energy check with complete documentation through software control
