Detection Method
   Detection Method:       
   Your choices are...         
   Thermal Conductivity Detector       A TCD consists of an electrically-heated wire or thermistor. The temperature of the sensing element depends on the thermal conductivity of the gas flowing around it. Changes in thermal conductivity, such as when organic molecules displace some of the carrier gas, cause a temperature to rise in the element, which is sensed as a change in resistance. 
   Flame Ionization Detector       An FID consists of a hydrogen/air flame and a collector plate. The effluent from the GC column passes through the flame, which breaks down organic molecules and produces ions. The ions are collected on a biased electrode and produce an electric signal. 
   Atomic Emission Detector       The AED simultaneously determines the atomic emissions of many of the elements in analytes that elute from the GC capillary column. As eluants come off the capillary column they are fed into a microwave powered plasma (or discharge) cavity where the components are destroyed and their atoms are excited by the energy of the plasma. The light that is emitted by the excited particles is separated into individual lines via a photodiode array. 
   Electron Capture Detector       The ECD uses a radioactive Beta emitter (electrons) to ionize some of the carrier gas and produce a current between a biased pair of electrodes. When organic molecules contain electronegative functional groups, such as halogens, phosphorous, and nitro groups pass by the detector, they capture some of the electrons and reduce the current measured between the electrodes. 
   Photoionization Detector       The PID uses ultraviolet light as a means of ionizing an analyte exiting from a GC column. Electrodes collect the ions produced by this process. The current generated is therefore a measure of the analyte concentration. 
   Flame Photometric Detector       This device uses the chemiluminescent reactions of phosphorous containing compounds in a hydrogen/air flame as a source of analytical information that is relatively specific for substances containing these atoms. 
   Chemiluminescence Spectroscopy       Chemiluminescence uses quantitative measurements of the optical emission from excited chemical species to determine analyte concentration. Usually the emission is measured from energized molecules rather than excited atoms. The bands of light determined by this technique emanate from molecular emissions and are therefore broader and more complex than bands originating from atomic spectra. 
   Nitrogen Phosphorous Detector       Compounds are burned in plasma surrounding a rubidium bead supplied with hydrogen and air. Nitrogen and phosphorous containing compounds produce ions that are attracted to the collector. The number of ions hitting the collector is measured and a signal is generated. 
   Other       Argon discharge detector, discharge ionization detector, electrolytic conductivity detector, etc.

Detector Specs
   Detection Limit or Sensitivity:       The limit to which the detector can detect the solutes. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Dynamic Range:       This is the range where the peak area is directly proportional to the solute amount (e.g., doubling the solute amount results in a doubling of peak area). This allows for the quantification of unknown samples using a multi-point calibration curve. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Temperature Range:       The temperature range within which the detector operates. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
