Easy sample introduction.
Application Area: Volatiles analysis
"The TSP desorption probe allows easy sample intro of solids directly into the multi mode inlet of you Agilent GC. Rapid sample heating allows for VOC analysis or heat up to 450C for “pyrolysis” like polymer characterization. Still investigating if cryo cooling is possible to prevent more aggressive desorption conditions during oven heating for the GC analysis - what I see as the one potential drawback vs the more expensive Frontier PY3030 system."
The Agilent Thermal Separation Probe (TSP) provides fast analysis of solid, liquid, and slurry samples. The process is simple, clean, and requires limited or zero sample preparation. Non-vaporized high boiling point ‘dirty sample matrix’– compounds, which can contaminate the GC liner and column, remain inside the micro-vial, and can be discarded after each injection. Use the TSP when testing complex samples in food, forensics, and environmental applications.
