Gas Chromatography FID and FPD detectors.

The Agilent 7890A GC is the instrument for screening complex mixtures of volatile organic compounds. It is fitted with a programmable temperature vaporising (PTV) and on-column injector, a flame ionization detector (FID), a flame photometric detector (FPD) for detection of organic sulphur or phosphorous compounds and an Agilent 7683 autoinjector and robotic sample tray to facilitate high sample throughput.

Furthermore, the latest QuickSwap capillary flow technology is used allowing the splitting of the column effluent –sending the sample to both detectors- providing the most information from a sample in a single run and providing the possibility for backflushing. In addition, both the injector and oven can be cooled (independently), using liquid nitrogen.
