Thermo Scientific Launches Versatile Gas Chromatograph Series
Product News Mar 26, 2012
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the Thermo Scientific TRACE 1300 Series GC, a compact, versatile gas chromatography system that is designed to increase productivity and lower cost in QA/QC and routine laboratories working on environmental, chemical and food safety applications.
It features unique user-exchangeable instant connect injectors and detectors and an intuitive interface that delivers reliable results and maximum sensitivity.
The company will showcase the new TRACE™ 1300 Series GC in Thermo Scientific booth 2665 during Pittcon 2012, being held from March 11-15, in Orlando.
The TRACE 1300 Series GC comes in two models: the TRACE 1300 GC and TRACE 1310 GC.
The TRACE 1300 GC is ideal for budget-conscious laboratories carrying out routine analysis; its simplified interface requires limited user interaction, so it can run 24/7 with limited staff oversight.
The TRACE 1310 GC, ideal for QA/QC laboratories or those focused on methods development, features an icon-based touch screen for more precise user control.
Both systems benefit from a robust design that is durable yet easy to use and maintain. Specific features include:
•User-exchangeable instant connect injectors and detectors that can be mounted in two minutes or less for rapid change if a different injection or detection technique is required.
•New micro-volume detectors designed for higher sensitivity and faster peak detection.
•Optional injector back-flush option that eliminates heavy or undesired compounds to protect column and detectors, increase sensitivity and ease maintenance.
•Full control and easy programming with the scalable Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon Data System, which streamlines path from samples to results and enhances operational simplicity.
“The TRACE 1300 Series GC is the ultimate combination of performance and productivity, designed with customers’ input to help make labs more productive without compromising performance,” said Massimo Santoro, global gas chromatography product manager at Thermo Fisher.
Santoro continued, “What’s more, the new series relies on the Chromeleon Chromatography Data System, showing how the recent Dionex acquisition is already paying dividends for our GC customers.”
