The Clarus 690 GC from PerkinElmer has been developed specifically for fast-paced, high-volume laboratories that require analytical cycle times to be increased. It offers superior capacity, sensitivity and throughput — with the versatility to manage more.
PerkinElmer’s best-in-class portfolio of TurboMatrix™ options contains manual and automated thermal desorption (TD, ATD), headspace (HS) and MultiPrep Autosampler solutions.
When users demand the highest levels of throughput as crucial to their operations, they can select the Clarus 690 gas chromatograph. Thanks to its patented high-performance oven, the instrument provides the quickest heat-up and cool-down of any oven in the business, which implies brief injection-to-injection times and the potential to run more samples daily.
Additionally, the twin-wall design of the oven with concentric air exhaust offers remarkable cooling to near-ambient temperatures without resorting to liquid cryogen. This feature seems to be crucial for the analysis of VOCs.
The Clarus 690 GC includes a wide-range flame ionization detector (FID). It is a new high-performance capillary injector that comes with reduced reactivity. The system also features autosampler technology that offers several options for headspace, liquid injection and SPME on a single system.
This system is powered by the TotalChrom™ chromatography data system (CDS) from PerkinElmer, which acts both as an instrument controller and a data management system, thereby making it the perfect choice for data handling in challenging multiuser and multisite environments where several instruments are in use.
Moreover, exclusive data protection features of the TotalChrom™ system guarantee that data acquisition processes are not compromised or disrupted. The GC instruments also feature an intuitive touch-screen interface that has a real-time signal display and eight-language support for significantly simplified user interaction.
The internal or calibration standards are available but should be ordered individually.
