The Clarus 680 GC incorporates many other PerkinElmer innovations that provide unprecedented operational simplicity and outstanding flexibility while removing the barriers to productivity that can arise with more demanding samples and applications. The fastest temperature programmable inlets available combined with programmable pneumatic control (PPC) provides simple and straightforward solutions to complex analyses such as analysis for methanol in crude oil or determination of pesticides in food.

Its near-ambient performances make the Clarus 680 GC the instrument of choice for the separation of light volatile components or when Large Volume Injection is required to run high-sensitivity GC/MS applications.

Complete instrument control is available through TotalChrom and TurboMass as well as Waters® Empower™ 2 and Agilent® EZChrom Elite™ drivers.

Features and Benefits:

  • Oven cool-down from 450 °C to 50 °C in less than 2 minutes.
  • Unique high-performance conventional oven and injectors speed cycle times and provide best-in-class near-ambient performance.
  • Integrated 108 vial liquid autosampler adds flexibility and automation.
  • Temperature programmable inlets deliver performance and flexibility for more demanding applications.
  • Programmable pneumatic control (PPC) adds automation
  • PerkinElmer's complete offering allows easy integration of best-in-class headspace, headspace trap or thermal desorption as well as MS detection
  • Swafer micro-channel technology expands analytical capabilities.
  • Innovative, intuitive touch-screen interface makes operation easy.
  • Scalable TotalChrom Chromatography Data Systems (CDS) make data management and reporting easier than ever.
  • Complete instrument control through Waters Empower2 and Agilent EZChrom drivers.

Patented high-performance oven - the unique oven design of the Clarus 680 GC provides the fastest available heat-up and cool-down rate, enabling shorter injection-to-injection and analytical cycle times, maximizing your sample throughput and achieve maximum return on your investment

  • Its twin-walled oven design with concentric air exhaust* allows the user to achieve greater separation at near-ambient temperatures without the use of special coolants, especially important for the analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
  • Fast oven heat-up allows faster chromatography, particularly useful when speeding up the elution of late eluting compounds.
  • Fastest available cool-down rate is delivered using forced convection air. This greatly reduces non-productive time between runs.
  • Universal Programmable Split-Splitless (PSS) and Programmable On-Column (POC) injectors design enables Large Volume Injection of volatile solvents and cold on-column injections without the use of expensive cooling agents
  • Novel Swafer™ micro-flow technology dramatically simplifies complex tasks helping to make the Clarus 680 GC easily used by operators at all skill levels
  • Complete instrument control is available through TotalChrom™, TurboMass™ as well as Waters® Empower™ 2 and Agilent® EZChrom Elite™ drivers.
