Heart-Cut System

Advanced Flow Technology Series for More Accurate Identification and Higher Productivity

Heart-Cut System

The complete separation and quantitation of specific compounds can be difficult in samples that contain many compounds. In such complex matrices, a heart-cut system using two columns with different separation characteristics can be employed to efficiently separate and quantitate specific compounds.

The Shimadzu heart-cut system is a single-oven model that features the switching device from the MDGC/GCMS-2010 Series, which offers maximum separation capacity.

We recommend this system in situations where the high separation of the MDGC/GCMS-2010 Series is not required.

Major Applications

  • Analysis of specific components in a sample containing multiple matrices

Petrochemicals (gasoline, light oil, kerosene, etc.) -> Analysis of Bioethanol Using the Heart-Cut System

Fragrance analysis (foods, drinks, etc.)

Optical isomers

  • Separation analysis of minute peaks hidden by major components

Fine chemical products

Impurity analysis in raw ingredients

  • Analysis of harmful components in environmental samples

Dedicated software to easily set complex analytical conditions

Dedicated software makes it simple to set the separation conditions and switching timing for the target components. Operation synchronized with GCsolution and GCMSsolution also allows efficient GC/GCMS setup.

* Since the heart-cut system consists of a single oven, it does not allow the programming of each oven temperature independently, unlike the multi-dimensional system.

* The 2nd column's temperature is the same as the 1st column. The separation performance of the heart-cut system may be inferior to that of the MDGC/GCMS-2010 Series because the heart-cut system cannot optimize the temperature setting for the 2nd column.
