OPTIC is a highly advanced Gas Chromatograph multi mode inlet system with sophisticated temperature and gas flow control that can be used for the most demanding GC analyses. Compatible with most popular makes and models of GC and GC-MS instruments, OPTIC-4 can be used for hot injections, cold injections, large volume, on-column injections, in liner derivatisation, thermal desorbtion, pyrolysis and more.
The GC inlet system can work from cryogenic temperatures (-150°C) up to very high temperatures (600°C) using a ramp rate of up to 60°C/sec. With the optional peltier cooler it is possible to cool faster, and reach initial temperatures of +7°C.
Depending on solvent type, liner type and injection speed it is possible to inject from 0.1µl to 500µl in the OPTIC inlet.
OPTIC systems consist of the injector, the control unit and the dedicated control software - Evolution Workstation. The standard supplied Evolution Workstation graphically displays all the system parameters in a real time mode and gives the possibility to save the run-time data for every injection. It can be integrated into Master lab, MassHunter, Chemstation, Clarity, Analyst, EZChrom and Xcalibur by the Chronos master software. The PAL system can also be controlled directly from Chronos.
Our technical team can advise on selecting the correct OPTIC-4 version for your requirements. Installation and training are also available on request.
