Product Description

The Mini GC is a small, lightweight, portable gas chromatograph that has the same easy to use features as the rest of the Forston Labs LabNavigator sensor products but is designed strictly for training new GC users. 

Like its analytical cousins, it is an instrument for separating, analyzing, and identifying substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample. It uses MEMS technology originally developed for the Army Research Laboratories.  The Mini GC can detect and distinguish between families of compounds, including alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons, carboxylic acids, chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, ethers, and nitriles. It has all of the key components of a traditional gas chromatograph, including an injection port, temperature and pressure controls, a capillary column through which different substances pass at different rates depending on various chemical and physical properties, and a sensor for detecting the arrival of compounds. It has a patented MEMS chip sensor that allows for room air to be used as a carrier gas.

The Mini GC connects to the LabNavigator and the LabNavigator App software allow users to easily control data-collection parameters, then collect data in real time. After the peaks are detected, the software allows you to determine retention times and/or integrate peaks to help quantify the relative amount of each compound present in the sample. 

With a retail price of under $3,895 which includes a Mini GC, LabNavigator 2 and software, the product is the perfect tool for introducing new users to GC concepts and analytical techniques without the expense of taking analytical time away from the dedicated GCs in your laboratory.   Its portability makes it ideal to share among multiple training facilities or sites.

The attractive cost of the system, ease of use and ability to measure, track and analyze chemical parameters makes the product unique in the market.
