Capillary / Micro Scale Columns

Columns for Microflow Analysis

Miniaturisation of liquid chromatography in combination with mass spectrometry has several advantages including improvements in sensitivity, especially at low concentration levels and dramatically reduced solvent consumption and time, compared to conventional HPLC or UHPLC.


To meet the requirements of SHIMADZU´s Nexera Mikros, we offer a selection of capillary columns specifically designed to be used with our chromatography systems.


Shim-pack MC C18

  • Micro-bore ODS column compatible with a mobile phase flowrate of 1 μL/min to several dozen μL/min
  • Suppressing of metal coordinative adsorption by inactivation of the column parts in contact with solution
  • In addition to low molecular compounds, enabling even analysis of peptides and other polymers
  Particle Size Length / i.d. 0.15 mm 0.175 mm 0.3 mm
C18 1.9 µm 50 mm 228-59937-95 228-59937-93 228-59937-91

Shim-pack Trap Columns MCT Series

Shim-pack MCT C18/C8
70 MPa pressure limitation and a unique modification on the column inner surface protects against absorption of the molecule.

Shim-pack MCT LC18/LC8
A small-volume cartridge column with 40 MPa pressure limit. Useful in reducing the gradient delay for a low flow rate.

Nexera Mikros: Trap and Elute Configuration

The trap and elute system can be constructed by using a dedicated piping kit (228-71751-42).


YMC-Triart Columns for Micro / Nano LC


YMC-Triart is a hybrid silica column prepared from well-controlled particle formation technology which is adapted from micro-reactor technology. The recently developed production step results in truly narrow particle and pore size distributions! With YMC-Triart micro/nano UHPLC/HPLC columns, wide pH ranges, high temperatures and even 100% H2O eluents are no longer a limitation to the day-to-day work in laboratories. Most importantly, due to its unique particle composition, a balanced hydrophobicity and silanol activity are achieved.

Installation Guide

◆ UF-Link Column-MS Interface Connection Mechanism

With UF-Link, a column-MS interface connection mechanism for Shimadzu micro LCMS systems, simply place the column in the column oven and swing over the lever to provide improved sensitivity, without the risk of sample diffusion outside the column.


Attach the adapter to the column.
The unified threads on the adapter
make it compatible with a
wide variety of columns.

Place the column in the UF-Link
mechanism inside the oven.

Complete the connection by
swinging over the lever.
