"This new detector is bringing a much needed upgrade to an old technology. The large furnace affords better total combustion which brings beter performance and longer stability."
With dramatically enhanced sensitivity and reliability, excellent maintainability, and next-generation automation functions, the Nexis SCD-2030 significantly improves laboratory productivity.
The Nexis SCD-2030 features an innovative horizontally positioned redox cell. This design ensures an ample reaction time and reaction zone within the cell, which promotes the sample's redox reaction, and achieves long-term stability. Moreover, the new design has significantly simplified changing the consumable pyro-tube and allows fast recovery of the instrument after maintenance. In addition, the SCD-2030 provides best-in-class sensitivity for sulfur chemiluminescence by utilizing the industry’s first ultrashort flow path. As the flow path becomes shorter, the sensitivity for both peak area and signal-to-noise ratio increases by up to 2.5 times.
Equipped with a new automation functions, the Nexis SCD-2030 enables operators to finish preparations such as gas control, temperature control and conditioning with a single touch. When combined with LabSolutions workstation software, the instrument can start up with the optimal conditions at a specific date and time, then automatically perform functions from system checks to starting and finishing analysis to system shutdown. Automating the processes previously performed by an operator supports a more efficient workflow and can prevent damage and degradation of detectors due to human error.
