All gas phase molecules absorb strongly in the vacuum ultraviolet region, yet application of VUV absorption technology to analytical detection and measurement has not been addressed…until now. The VGA-100 is a universal mass-sensitive gas chromatography detector that provides both qualitative and quantitative data. The strong absorption of gas phase molecules in the VUV provide excellent sensitivity, and the compound-specific absorption spectra provide unparalleled selectivity.
The VGA-101 is the latest innovation in vacuum ultraviolet detection featuring an expanded wavelength spectrum and a higher allowable maximum operating temperature. An expanded wavelength spectrum of 120 – 430 nm provides unique selectivity for complex structures such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The ability to operate the VUV detector as high as 450 °C allows GCxGC analysis of high boiling point compounds. Engineering advancements have also enabled the VGA-101 to be placed in-line with other GC detectors for new data correlation and analytical insight.
The SVGA-100 is the world’s first streaming gas detector using vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) spectroscopy designed for the real-time analysis of bulk and specialty gases. The detector features a multi-port sample selection valve with inputs for up to four gases. Its software allows for quick toggling between samples (<1 sec), enabling rapid sampling and short analysis times. The SVGA-100 is a universal detector with unmatched compound selectivity that is designed for real-time qualitative and quantitative analysis with no need for prior chromatographic separation.
