Robust Automated Nanospray MS for every need and every budget
The Nimbus NanoLC Dual Column System - Automated, streamlined dual column source with an embedded computer that doubles productivity and is the ultimate in ease of use.

Nimbus NanoLC System
  • New! pneu-Nimbus with pneumatically-controlled column switching: full-function at lower cost
  • New! Removable magnetic column rail allows installation of columns at the bench, flexible column lengths and on-source HV switching
  • Download brochure here for details.
  • Downloadable Brochure (PDF)

    Dual-column advantages:

  • Substancially reduces carryover and improves data quality by washing the sample, column and emitter off-axis
  • On-board computer positions one column for analysis while switching off the high voltage on the second column performing off-axis loading, washing and equilibration
  • Dual column automated system increases nano-LC throughput by up to 100%
  • Compatible with Phoenix S& T's pencil column heaters and Butterfly heaters
  • Third column position for calibration available
  • Also New! User-select analysis with sheath-gas or without sheath gas
  • initiating nanospray
  • Robust clog-free spray emitters - proprietary Active Spray Control utilizes
    nitrogen to purge the emitter before initiating nanospray
  • Two modes of operation: alternating analysis between the two columns or triplicate runs on each column for clinical applications
  • Highly effective for biological sample matrix analyses, e.g. proteomics, metabolomics, biomarker discovery and method development
  • No separate computer or new software package is needed
  • Compact and economical - Simple push buttons control the fine adjustment of the column and emitter positions
  • Available for the Thermo family of mass spectrometers as well as an upgrade for the nanospray sources for the Ab Sciex mass spectrometers

"I'm very satisfied those (eFrit) columns. Resin was very efficiently packed without any stopping,"
-Lee Hyoung-Joo, Yonsei Proteomix Research Center, Seoul, Korea

"The carryover issue is definitely gone; I keep the temp at 40C, and it only takes one blank run to get rid of carryovers. I like the column heater."
-Eric Chan, PhD, Constellation Pharmaceuticals

"The µAutoNano dual-column source has in effect added an extra OrbiTrap and nanoflow pump to my lab without extra space and maintenance, and the column heater has allowed us to run analyses on 29 cm long Halo columns without a uPLC.  This has represented a huge cost savings for the lab."
-Stephen Master, MD, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

"Phoenix S&T provides great products and customer care for nanoLC-MS. I use their nanospray source for the Thermo LTQ and TSQ MS."
Kwasi Mawuenyega, Ph.D., Washington University
