Agilent Unveils 1200 Series Diode-Array and Multiple-Wavelength Detectors
Product News Nov 09, 2006
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the launch of 1200 Series diode-array and multiple-wavelength detectors featuring improved noise specifications.
These liquid chromatography detectors are designed to enable scientists to reach lower detection limits, even under harsh, fluctuating ambient temperature and humidity conditions.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) tags for flow cells and a UV lamp provide new levels of data traceability.
The RFID tags record such parameters as product and serial number, production date, cell dimensions, lifetime and usage of the lamp, and the last date of a successful cell or lamp test. This information is saved with each individual raw-data file.
The Agilent 1200 Series diode-array and multiple-wavelength detectors additionally offer:
- Dual lamp design for sensitivity from 190 to 950 nm;
- Programmable slit for optimization of sensitivity, linearity and spectral resolution;
- Low-noise electronics and electronic temperature control for lowest detection limits;
- A range of nine flow cells for highest application flexibility; and
- Upgrade to the 80 Hz sampling rate for high speed separations.
"These new detectors reinforce the scalable and open architecture of the 1200 Series LC platform," said Agilent Product Manager Christian Gotenfels.
"They can be easily upgraded to work with SL models for Rapid Resolution LC with an 80 Hz sampling rate, making this a secure investment in the future of our customers’ labs."
