Easy to use and very compact system Clarus SQ8.
Application Area:Environmental analysis and chemical routine
"The Clarus SQ8 is very compact, quiet, easy to use, easy to maintain. However, the equipment is not very good in terms of sensitivity. It is not good for reproducibility analysis. The base line is very noisy. The after sale service is fantastic in Melbourne VIC, but some of the problem from the equipment itself are very hard to identify even for PE service engineers. I am not very happy with the value for money of this instrument"

Great instrument! Study a lot to make the best use of it!
Application Area:Analysis of fabric
"The instrument is realy useful for a lot of applications. It gives precise and reliable results. It is not so simple to use it, but the manufacturer provides an initial course to begin familiarizing yourself with the tool."

Instrument is great, software needs work.
Application Area:EPA regulated organics
"Software has a lot of flaws and routinely locks up, causing the program to be redownloaded. This causes a fault in production, processing of results, and aggravation."

"Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS gives the advantage of switching between EI and CI ionisation modes in an easy way. Ballistic cooling is an added advantage. But the Clarifi detector is not robust enough for long time operations. "

"We have newly purchased this instrument and are currently beginning method development with it. We are happy with it so far."
