Shimadzu GC-2010 Plus capillary gas chromatograph

Wednesday, 20 January, 2010 | Supplied by: Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Oceania) Pty Ltd


The GC-2010 Plus capillary gas chromatograph, with advanced flow technology, sensitive detectors and fast heating and cooling, is claimed to improve separation performance and reduce analysis time for trace analysis and ensure data quality for a wide range of applications.

Its advanced flow technology (AFT) consists of digital pressure controllers, additional hardware and intuitive software. AFT packages include the backflush kit and detector splitting system.

The backflush system discharges high-boiling point components through the injection port split vent to reduce analysis time and prevent column deterioration and detector contamination. The detector splitting system splits compounds eluting from an analytical column to multiple detectors to obtain multiple chromatograms, providing additional information in a single analysis.

The chromatograph’s detectors (FID, FPD, ECD, FTD and TCD) address increasing sensitivity demands for trace-level analysis.

The compact flame photometric detector features flame stability and double-focusing optics to achieve what is claimed to be the world’s highest sensitivity for analysis of phosphorus and sulfur compounds. Utilising clean detector gas flows and the latest noise reduction technology, the flame ionisation detector (FID) ensures sensitivity with a minimum detected quantity of 1.5 pgC/s.

The chromatograph’s oven enables rapid heating and cooling. A double-jet cooling system has airflow channels that enable a rapid cooling time from 450 to 50°C in 3.4 minutes. Long-term stability of peak retention times is enabled by the room-temperature compensation technology in each flow controller.
