"It is a great instrument for fast and reproducible quantitative analysis. A touch-panel allows fast and easy communication as well as a real-time control of the chromatogram."

"This PerkinElmer GC is easy to program, use, and perform maintenance on. For our purposes, we couple it to an ICP-MS (PE Elan DRC2)."

Application Area: Fire debris, IH
Clarus 680 GC

"Perkin Elmer instruments are generally a lower cost option that provide a reasonable quality with a few minor issues. The sample introduction is great for avoiding bent syringes but will have greater variability in reproducibility than other systems such as Agilent. The Turbomass software is reasonably easy to use with decent customization of the report format. It is somewhat less intuitive than the Agilent software but again there is a cost differential that makes it a reasonable option."

Description

 

The Clarus® 680 GC is designed for fast-paced, high-volume laboratories that require fast analytical cycle times. It maximizes throughput with the fastest injection-to-injection time of any conventional gas chromatograph.

The Clarus 680 GC incorporates many other PerkinElmer innovations that provide unprecedented operational simplicity and outstanding flexibility while removing the barriers to productivity that can arise with more demanding samples and applications. The fastest temperature programmable inlets available combined with programmable pneumatic control (PPC) provides simple and straightforward solutions to complex analyses such as analysis for methanol in crude oil or determination of pesticides in food.

Its near-ambient performances make the Clarus 680 GC the instrument of choice for the separation of light volatile components or when Large Volume Injection is required to run high-sensitivity GC/MS applications.

Complete instrument control is available through TotalChrom and TurboMass as well as Waters® Empower™ 2 and Agilent® EZChrom Elite™ drivers.

Features/Benefits
Patented high-performance oven - the unique oven design of the Clarus 680 GC provides the fastest available heat-up and cool-down rate, enabling shorter injection-to-injection and analytical cycle times, maximizing your sample throughput and achieve maximum return on your investment

•  Its twin-walled oven design with concentric air exhaust* allows the user to achieve greater separation at near-ambient temperatures without the use of special coolants, especially important for the analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
•  Fast oven heat-up allows faster chromatography, particularly useful when speeding up the elution of late eluting compounds.
•  Fastest available cool-down rate is delivered using forced convection air. This greatly reduces non-productive time between runs.
•  Universal Programmable Split-Splitless (PSS) and Programmable On-Column (POC) injectors design enables Large Volume Injection of volatile solvents and cold on-column injections without the use of expensive cooling agents
•  Novel Swafer™ micro-flow technology dramatically simplifies complex tasks helping to make the Clarus 680 GC easily used by operators at all skill levels
•  Complete instrument control is available through TotalChrom™, TurboMass™ as well as Waters® Empower™ 2 and Agilent® EZChrom Elite™ drivers.
