Shimadzu Wins R&D 100 Award for Nexera Unified Chromatography System
Shimadzu Corporation announces that it has won an R&D 100 award for the development of its Nexera UC Unified Chromatography system. The award from R&D magazine recognizes Shimadzu’s Nexera UC system as one of the 100 most technically significant new products of the year in the analytical and testing category. R&D Magazine chose the Nexera UC system because its fully automated technology opens up new analytical opportunities in many fields, including food products, drug discovery and delivery, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and cleaning validation. 
The Nexera UC system is the world’s first ever unified and fully automated system that combines supercritical fluidic extraction (SFE) with supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). With industry-leading throughput and superior levels of sensitivity, the system eliminates the need for complicated sample pre-treatment and reduces the possibility of human error during analysis.
“We are honored that the Nexera UC system was recognized as one of the top revolutionary innovations in the world, and we are excited about its positive impact in the analytical world,” said Shuzo Maruyama, General Manager, Analytical & Measurement Instruments Division. “This award is testament to the Shimadzu engineers and developers who strive to not just make the highest quality analytical products, but to improve life for everyone by addressing today’s most crucial scientific research challenges.”
