JASCO Liquid Chromatography since 1972

June 5, 2020

HPLC was developed and initially commercialized in the early 1960s in the United States.

JASCO immediately recognized the vast potential of this new separation analyzer and introduced the first HPLC system in Japan in 1972.

This system was based on technology developed exclusively in Japan.

In 1977, our expanded market presence and growing reputation prompted the U.S. company that originally commercialized HPLC to ask JASCO to manufacture pumps, UV detectors and other products on an OEM basis.

In the 40 years since, we have developed such new products as a low-pressure gradient system, micro-HPLC system, and a sampling SFC system that is directly connected to a Supercritical Fluid Extractor (SFE).

In addition, since our HPLC system introduced in 2014 works particularly well with mass spectrometers, our system is widely used as the standard LC-MS instrument to measure components using mass spectrometry.
