Anakon 2015

23.03. - 26.03.2015
Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz
Graz, Austria

The Anakon is the most important conference in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for knowledge exchange in all sectors of analytical chemistry and her related fields. Shimadzu will be hosting an Oral Presentation about the use of Large-Volume-Injection and present a Poster about the effect of different Injector Inserts on Pesticide Analysis. Our Product Specialists will be there to show your our UV-2600, IRAffinity-1S, Optical Devices and the Triple Quadrupole GCMS-TQ8040.

„Large-Volume-Injektion – Überblick und Anwendungsbeispiele“

Die Erhöhung der Systemempfindlichkeit wie auch die Verringerung der Analysen- und Präparationszeiten stellen heutzutage allgegenwärtige Herausforderungen für die GCMS und GCMSMS-Analytik in Routine und wissenschaftlicher Forschung dar. Ein Verfahren, beide Zielsetzungen zu erreichen, besteht in der Injektion großer Probenvolumina, der Large-Volume-Injektion (LVI). Durch Erhöhung der Analytmenge und dem daraus resultierenden gesteigerten Response des Systems kann beispielsweise eine zeitaufwändige Vorkonzentrierung der Probe vermieden werden. Technisch kann die Large Volume-Injektion entweder über on-column Injektion mittels Vorsäulen in Kombination mit einem Ventil zur Ausblendung des Lösemittels (Early Vapor Exit) oder mithilfe temperaturprogrammierbarer PTV-Injektoren realisiert werden. Dieser Vortrag wird einen kurzen Überblick über die Large Volume-Injektionstechnik im Allgemeinen geben sowie deren Möglichkeiten für verschiedenste Applikationen in der Nahrungsmittel- und Umweltanalytik anhand exemplarischer Untersuchungen unter Verwendung des Optic-4 Injektors aufzeigen.

“The Effect of Different Injector Inserts on Pesticide Analysis: Compound Discrimination and Reproducibility”

Dr. Rebecca Kelting, Shimadzu Europa GmbH, Duisburg, Deutschland

Beside the simple classification of dividing into split and splitless injector inserts, there is a variety of liner geometries, fillings and deactivations available on the market the user has to choose of. Many applications, however, include compounds that show a behaviour strongly dependent on the properties of the liner or the filling material. Especially pesticides reveal drastic differences when injected into different inserts, caused by adsorption and degradation effects on the surface. In the study presented here different liners have been investigated with respect to compound discrimination using a pesticide mix. The liners showing best overall performance additionally were compared regarding reproducibility of the signals.

Food is always a hot topic discussion and in the focus of “state of the art” analytical techniques. Food scandals all around the world from eggs to horsemeat, tainted wine, oil, and milk forces the European community to establish an integrated approach on food control. The most suitable technique for quantitative analysis of heavy metals in food and food packaging is ICP-OES spectrometry. Experimental data of antimony in food and food packaging will be presented and analytical results generated on the new simultaneous ICPE-9820 will be discussed.

Product Lineup:

The Shimadzu GCMS-TQ8040 is the first triple quadrupole with Smart Productivity for high efficiency sample throughput, Smart Operation for quick and easy method development, and Smart Performance for low detection limits and Scan/MRM. These 3 smart technologies contribute to Smart MRM, and provide the most accurate, cost effective, and easy-to-use triple quadrupole GCMS you have ever imagined.

The compact UV-2600/2700 is a universal, researchgrade spectrophotometer that can be used in a wide range of fields, and easily expanded to suit the measurement objective.

The IRAffinity-1S is a compact Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer that is housed within an elegant form. The interferometer is continuously optimized by a dynamic alignment mechanism, and a built-in auto dryer helps ensure ease of maintenance.

Shimadzu produces a wide range of diffraction gratings like the unique LO-RAY-LIGH Gratings – The diffraction gratings that has world’s highest efficiency and world’s lowest stray light level.
