Great buddy! Good narrator for telling the stories beyond the samples.
Application Area: Analyze a wide range of Polyolefin samples
"As a researcher working more than 8 years in the field of catalysis and polyolefin polymerizations, I totally satisfy by data collected from the Agilent technology instruments (e.g. HT-GPC-IR). This high-tech machine equipped with different detectors not only provides required information for better understanding the interactions and molecular properties of the samples but also talks to you by the data of the samples which were prepared over months. Therefore, it can be said that this machine with multi-detectors narrates the story of the prepared samples. It tells me all the things about the sample without any censors. Even sometimes the sample is not good enough and the machine shows errors and says to change the sample and use a better one (please). So, I rely on the story and write it down (as a paper) to tell it to other scientists and researchers."

An essential tool in our lab for polymer characterization.
Application Area:Polymer molecular weight and structural analysis
"Powerful tool for molecular weight analysis of essentially all polymer systems including polyolefins and engineering polymers. The instrument requires patience to obtain stable and reproducible results, especially when switching between solvent systems. Documentation is generally good but some gaps in information do exist in manuals/etc. Software, once configured to a given workflow, is quite capable but also possesses some notable gaps in capabilities/diagnostics. The manufacturer is generally very responsive and provides an invaluable service plan for the instrument that is highly recommended."
The 1260 Infinity II High-Temperature GPC System can provide information about all of today’s engineering polymers such as polyolefins, which are one of the most popular polymers with numerous applications. This level of detail helps with development and to predict how a given batch will process and perform in the final product.
Traditionally challenging materials such as polyethylene and polyamides can be analyzed routinely regardless of detection technique. High-temperature light scattering, viscometry, and concentration detectors (RID and HTELSD) all deliver a wealth of information, whatever your polymer of interest.
