The Lucidity LC-UV is the smallest, most affordable, most robust, easiest to use fully functional Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC / UHPLC) on the market with the lowest cost of ownership for a macroscale HPLC system.
EASIEST TO USE HPLC AVAILABLE
The software and hardware have been designed from the ground up to make the Lucidity LC-UV extremely intuitive to use so that even a novice can have success with liquid chromatography and even an expert can get the performance and flexibility they are used to.
MOST AFFORDABLE HPLC AVAILABLE
Our prices are the lowest because we want to make liquid chromatography available to everyone. You get everything you need to perform HPLC / UHPLC anlaysis all included in the system you purchase for one low price. We even offer a range of rental options.
LOWEST COST OF OWNERSHIP
With the most affordable service plans, the ability to self-install, free applications support, and no software licensing fees (software is included with the purchase of the Lucidity LC-UV) you will experience the lowest cost of ownership for any macroscale Liquid Chromatograph.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS INCLUDED
We want to make it simple. You get everything you need to perform UHPLC / UPLC analysis when you purchase a Lucidity LC-UV, including a laptop, software, a column, and all the accessories you need.
SELF-INSTALLABLE IN UNDER 30 MINS
Because of the size, weight, and ease of use of the Lucidity LC-UV, you can set up your system in under 30 minutes and be running samples. The system comes pre plumbed and includes a series of installation and training videos that walk you through set up of the system and are available any time you need for subsequent training.
ON SITE OR SWAP OUT SERVICE OPTIONS
Whether you want a trained service engineer to come on site or whether you want us to ship you a replacement system, we have you covered. Multiple options to fit your needs and keep you up and running!
FREE APPLICATIONS SUPPORT
We are only as successful as our customers. We have a team of highly trained analytical chemists available to assist in method development and applications support. And this service is free for all of our customers!
The Lucidity LC-UV has by far the smallest footprint of any fully functional macroscale LC out there. It’s slightly bigger than that of a shoebox while slightly taller than twice the height of a shoebox. This makes the system ideal for putting in multiple locations, being able to move it when needed, and makes it very easy to install.
VARIABLE WAVELENGTH UV DETECTOR
Included in the system is a variable wavelength UV detector that is capable of measuring signal from 185nm to 475nm allowing you maximum optimization capability and the ability to match reference results that have been generated at a particular wavelength.
BINARY GRADIENT PUMPING SYSTEM
The two high-end, high pressure piston pumps allow the system to deliver very accurate solvent gradients even up to 10,000 psi of back pressure with flow rates from 0.1mL/min to 10mL/min meaning you can even use UHPLC columns with small particle sizes with the Lucidity LC-UV for maximum resolving capability.
INTEGRATED 20 POSITION AUTOSAMPLER
Put your samples in standard HPLC vials, place up to 20 of them in the autosampler rack and start the run. No need to babysit the system while it is running.
POWERFUL USER FRIENDLY INTERFACE
We have custom designed our user interface with the customer and ease of use in mind. Our goal has always been to create an extremely powerful interface allowing full functionality but while also being extremely easy to navigate with no training required. If it requires a manual to use, it’s probably too complicated.
The Lucidity LC-UV inlcudes a high end integrated degasser that removes dissolved gasses from your mobile phases, ensuring the most stable baseline for the best possible sensitivity and repeatability.
USES STANDARD HPLC & UHPLC COLUMNS
The Lucidity LC-UV uses standard HPLC and UHPLC columns so there’s no need to buy specialty columns from only one vendor. This also allows you match results from literature and other systems / labs.
MATCHES THE RESULTS OF TRADITIONAL HPLCs / UHPLCs
Although the Lucidity LC-UV is dramatically smaller, more affordable, and easier to use, the chromatograms produced with the Lucidity LC-UV are indistinguishable from results produced by other traditional HPLCs & UHPLCs, so that results can be matched and compared to literature results, historical data, and outside lab results.
We have designed control and data viewing software for the Lucidity LC-UV that is the easiest to use LC software available while allowing full control of the system. The Lucidity LC-UV comes with a laptop with the software that connects to the system via an ethernet cable. The software and all future upgrades are free and open source to anyone so our software can be seamlessly integration with any LIMS system and the data can be exported into cvs for external data viewing and analysis. Watch the software demo video to see the software in action.
