Shimadzu Corporation. (4/26/13). "Press Release: Expanded Control of Shimadzu LC Systems for Empower Software. Waters Empower Software Now Controls Shimadzu Nexera X2 Series Products".

Organisations Organisation Shimadzu Corporation
  Group Shimadzu (Group)
  Organisation 2 Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT)
  Group Waters (Group)
Products Product Nexera X2 UHPLC system (product series)
  Product 2 Empower™ Chromatography Data System (CDS)

Waters EmpowerTM chromatography data systems can now be used to control the new Shimadzu SPD-M30A photodiode array detector in Nexera X2 series systems. This means EmpowerTM Software can now be used to control a wider range of Shimadzu HPLC and UHPLC products, including Prominence, LC-2010, and even Nexera X2 series products*. The Nexera X2 series, which was just released in November 2012, represents the next generation in UHPLC technology, offering the world's highest levels of functionality and performance. Features include ultrafast analysis using the world's highest 130 MPa pressure levels, a new SPD-M30A photodiode array detector that provides superior sensitivity and spectral resolution, and the outstanding injection precision and delivery stability performance refined in Prominence and Nexera series products. The fact that Nexera X2 systems can be controlled not only from Shimadzu LabSolutions data systems, but also by EmpowerTM Software, means Nexera X2 products can now be used by a wider range of customers.

* For information on the compatibility of specific models, refer to the product information page.

1) Empower Software Controls All Major Shimadzu HPLC and UHPLC Products

Being able to control SPD-M30A photodiode array detectors and other Nexera X2 series products from Waters EmpowerTM Software means the software can also control major Shimadzu HPLC and UHPLC series products. Consequently, the analytical performance capabilities of Shimadzu HPLC and UHPLC products can be fully utilized in combination with the compliance features of EmpowerTM Software, which fully supports compliance not only with GLP/GMP regulations, but also with US FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and other regulations related to electronic records and digital signatures.

2) Enables Maximum Use of Nexera X2 Performance Capabilities

The ability to control Nexera X2 series SPD-M30A photodiode array detectors takes full advantage of Nexera X2 features. In addition to ultra fast analysis with the world's highest 130 MPa pressure levels, EmpowerTM Software can access all the features of the SPD-M30A detector, such as the highest spectral resolution, the highest sensitivity levels and spectral resolution, and superior stability. Direct control also allows access to other functionality, such as multiwavelength detection using the SPD-M30A detector or automatic blending of up to four mobile phases and full documentation of instrument parameters. This expands the potential range of applications for controlling Nexera X2 series products using EmpowerTM Software. Systems can now be optimized using Nexera X2 features for a wider range of applications, from method development to routine analysis, while also maintaining consistent operation using EmpowerTM Software.
