5D Ultra-e:

The 5D Ultra-e is a unique system that combines a comprehensive
two-dimensional gas chromatography and triple quadrupole mass
spectrometer with an HPLC system connected online. This system is the
only one of its kind in the world.
The online HPLC system enhances the power of comprehensive 2D GC
analysis and simultaneously improves productivity by increasing
automation. Furthermore, the GC×GC system combined with an ultra fast
triple quadrupole mass spectrometer allows both untargeted analyses as
well as targeted analysis of components in complex samples.
Consequently, the five dimensions provided by the LC-GC×GC-MS/MS
system open the road to analysis with even higher separation and higher


The system includes HPLC (Prominence) units, LC-GC transfer unit (AOC-5000 Plus and OPTIC-4PTV), GC×GC unit (GC-2010 Plus and
ZX-2), and a MS/MS (GCMS-TQ8040). After the sample is injected into the Prominence HPLC, it is separated by normal-phase
chromatography. Then the AOC-5000 Plus injects only the target fraction into the OPTIC-4PTV GC inlet. After separating the fraction in
the GC×GC with a double-oven and ZX-2 thermal modulator, the analytes are detected by the GCMS-TQ8040. This entire series of
analytical steps can be executed entirely from the 5D Solution integrated software, which means that the resulting data can be analyzed
using ChromSquare 2D chromatography data analysis software.


5D Solution Integrated Software
Dedicated software is used to control each unit of the
LC-GC×GC-MS/MS system. However, 5D Solution collectively manages all
of these control software programs, so that analysis can be started with a
single click. Furthermore, continuous analysis of multiple samples can be
The included linear velocity calculation software allows the user to view
the calculated linear velocity values of the first and second columns while
the optimal column inlet pressures are being specified, which provides
powerful assistance for determining analytical conditions for
comprehensive 2D-GC analysis
