Developed and manufactured at our UK HQ, the 500 Series Gas Chromatograph is a unique new concept in gas chromatography. The instrument can perform conventional, fast and ultra-fast GC, removing the requirement for multiple systems. This is the only GC machine that can offer this flexibility for the customer.
Ultra Fast GC can decrease you analysis cycle times by up to 10 times.
The 500 Series GC has one of the smallest footprints in the market saving valuble laboratory benchspace.
Energy consumption per sample dramatically reduced compared to other conventional GC’s.
When using the 500 Series GC in conventional mode, the GC can accept standard capillary and packed columns. These are then heated in a hot air oven. The 500 Series GC uses the unique patented heat exchanger flow through oven system. Originally developed for the 200 Series GC the innovative technology delivers industry standard heating performance whilst dramatically reducing energy consumption.
The 500 Series GC can also perform Ultra-Fast Chromatography when used with metal ultra-fast GC Columns. When in Ultra-Fast mode rather than using the hot air oven to heat the column, an electrical current is passed directly though the column resistively heating it. This allows for significantly faster temperature ramping, and then because only the column has been heated rather than an entire oven, the cool down time is greatly decreased.
