VWR® Hitachi Primaide HPLC 

Affordable and robust HPLC system engineered for seamless integration and reliable analyses

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is utilized in a diverse range of fields, including medicine, food production, chemistry, and environmental science, making HPLC systems increasingly in-demand among the various types of analytical equipment. The Hitachi HPLC Primaide is designed for long-term, stable operation, and features both high reliability and great durability. It offers tremendous capability for everyday analysis.

Based on over 50 years of experience in the development and production of HPLC systems, Hitachi proudly introduces the Primaide. Make the most of your analytical equipment with Hitachi as the “Prime Aide” in your lab!

The best choice for personal use

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 daily. The Primaide is built according to strict specifications to meet 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 cooler.

Reliable durability

Hitachi HPLC systems have earned a reputation as highly durable machines, and Primaide is no exception. Our strict production quality standards ensure both high performance and endurance. This standard extends to all equipment from systems to accessories.

System Features

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 can be accessed and handled from the front. Since connections are arranged on the front side, it is easy to replace columns and manipulate the flow system. To support easier maintenance, the lamp and cell unit can also be accessed easily.

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, in a conventional manner.

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 PC types are supported, enabling flexible configuration.

GLP function

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.
