Products & Services
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Analyzers
Volatile organic compound (VOC) analyzers are used to detect concentrations of heavy hydrocarbons in gas or liquid media.
HPLC Columns
High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) columns use a liquid mobile phase to separate the components of a mixture.
Laboratory and Calibration Gases
Laboratory and calibration gases are specialized for use as laboratory standards, as well as for detection, sample preparation, environmental monitoring and analysis applications.
GC Columns
Gas chromatography columns (GC columns) are of two types: packed and capillary. Solutes to be measured travel through the column at a rate primarily determined by their physical properties, and the temperature and composition of the column.
GC Detectors
Gas chromatography detectors (GC detectors) identify solutes as they exit the chromatographic column. A chromatogram is generated plotting the signal versus time.
