Hitachi Primaide HPLC System
Affordable and robust HPLC system engineered for seamless integration and reliable analyses
High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is utilized in a wide range of fields, such as medicine, food production, chemistry, and environmental science, making the demand for HPLC systems higher among the various types of analytical equipment. The Hitachi Primaide HPLC is designed for long-term, stable operation, and features both high reliability and superior durability. It offers tremendous capability for everyday analysis.
Simple operation for any HPLC user
Even in small to mid-scale facilities, individual operators see increasing opportunities to use multiple HPLC systems. Thanks to its simple design and front-access layout, maintenance of the Primaide is easy. Even a beginner at LC analysis can confidently operate the Primaide.
Excellent basic performance
The demand for HPLC systems with higher precision, better reproducibility, and improved stability is increasing. The Primaide is built according to strict specifications to meet such stringent requirements. In addition, labs can apply the Primaide to an even wider range of applications by employing optional units, such as a sophisticated DAD (Diode Array Detector) and an autosampler cooling unit.
Hitachi HPLC systems have earned a reputation as highly durable machines, and the Primaide is no exception. Our strict production quality standards ensure both high performance and endurance. These standards are applied to all equipment from systems to accessories.
Optional units mounted inside provide clean appearance
All principal options, including a degasser, gradient unit, and sample cooling system can be mounted inside the main body. It is not necessary to make room for optional units.
Front access layout for improved operation and maintenance
Every module is accessed and handled from the front. Since connections are arranged on the front, it is easy to replace columns and manipulate the flow system. For easier maintenance, the lamp and cell unit are also easily accessible.
Leak sensors in all modules
Any leakage in the flow system is detected by leak sensors built into each module. After detection the system halts, ensuring improved safety and reliability.
Complete control with system manager
A control panel is not necessary, as everything can be controlled via the system manager. By installing a UI- pad (optional), each module can be controlled separately.
e-Line and USB
The e-Line is an advanced version of the existing D-Line. All modules are connected by an e-Line in a single chain, and all the communications are integrated. The use of digital signals improves the reliability of data transactions. The interface between the PC and equipment is via versatile USB. A wide range of PCs are supported, enabling flexible configuration.
A Hg lamp is installed in the detector, and wavelengths in the UV range can be calibrated using its emission line (254 nm) (installed in the Primaide 1410 UV / 1430 DAD). Each module stores various types of quality assurance information, for improved data reliability.
