- Thermo Fisher Scientific Unveils Femtogram-Level Electrochemical Detector at Pittcon 2013
Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific Unveils Femtogram-Level Electrochemical Detector at Pittcon 2013Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced that it will feature its new Thermo Scientific Dionex UltiMate 3000 Electrochemical Detector during Pittcon 2013. This detector makes the speed and resolution of UHPLC separation available with electrochemical detection. Electrochemical detection offers: the high sensitivity needed to measure neurotransmitters, the robustness to analyze pharmaceutical compounds, and the selectivity to characterize complex samples such as supplements, beverages, and biological samples. Thermo Fisher will showcase the new instrument within booth 1835 during Pittcon 2013, being held in Philadelphia from March 17-21, 2013.
Compatible with the current family of Thermo Scientific Dionex Ultimate 3000 EC-optimized HPLC and UHPLC systems, this detector features coulometric and amperometric sensors that are designed for simple, flexible and low-maintenance operation. Coulometric sensors are known for their stability and low maintenance. Amperometric sensors are chosen for their very high sensitivity, even with precious, volume-limited samples.
Plug-and-play electrochemical sensors with SmartChip intelligence are designed to configure the instrument automatically, optimize parameters and minimize noise by eliminating cable connections. Fluidic components are exchangeable from the front of the detector without special tools, simplifying routine set-up and maintenance. Full-scale signal autoranging protects data integrity by reducing peak over-ranging. The UltiMate 3000 Electrochemical Detector can be used with gradients for method flexibility and high throughput.
