Expanding on the functionality of its original gas chromatograph, Vernier Software & Technology has released the Mini GC Plus. Designed for high school and college science laboratories, the Mini GC Plus is a portable instrument for separating, analyzing and identifying substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample.
The Mini GC Plus offers an increased maximum column temperature of 160ºC and a MEMS chip sensor that can be set at either of two levels of sensitivity – standard sensitivity mode or high sensitivity mode. The standard sensitivity mode works well for polar compounds such as ketones, alcohols and esters, while the high sensitivity mode works well for compounds such as halogenated alkanes and substituted aromatics, as well as mixtures with one or more compounds of low concentration.
The Mini GC Plus is currently available for $1,799. For more information and detailed specifications, visit www.vernier.com.
