"The instrument is operator-friendly and easy to use. Computer controllable functions are well defined and accessible. The problem is relatively frequent malfunctions, mainly in the computer-instrument communication. Needed more visits from the technicians than other GC instruments we had in our lab. "
The FinniganTM FOCUSTM GC is the Thermo product conceived to maximize productivity of QA/QC labs with fast chromatography, yelding high quality results and yet requiring minimum operator’s training. Compact in size and very affordable, FOCUS GC is the ideal solution for every budget conscious laboratory looking for an instantly productive GC environment.
