GC micro-channel wafer technology

Friday, 05 June, 2009 | Supplied by: PerkinElmer Pty Ltd


The Swafer micro-channel wafer technology platform is designed for flow-switching applications in capillary gas chromatography (GC). The platform provides Clarus Gas Chromatograph users with additional application flexibility while improving sample information, sensitivity and throughput.

The platform is suitable for applications ranging from simple techniques, like connecting two detectors to one column and removing unwanted material from a column, to sophisticated multidimensional separations on complex samples.

Two versions of the Swafer are available. The S-Swafer is a scalable splitting device designed for sample-stream splitting between a range of detectors or columns. The D-Swafer is based on the Deans’Switch principle. Both the S-Swafer and the D-Swafer can be configured in multiple ways, offering a variety of capabilities.

The platform is applicable to a range of industry functions, including the detection of pesticides in food products and the analysis of complex matrices (such as petroleum or natural products). With tools such as detector switching or heartcutting capabilities, the Swafer can handle complex samples and yield reliable data.

The platform integrates all paths in contact with samples into a single circular disk 20 mm in diameter and 3 mm in thickness. It is inert and easily installed onto any PerkinElmer Clarus 500 or 600 GC with programmable pneumatics.
