Overview

When the highest levels of throughput are critical to your operations, choose the Clarus 690 gas chromatograph. Its patented high-performance oven delivers the fastest heat-up and cool-down of any oven in the business, and that means shorter injection-to-injection times, and the ability to run more samples per day. Plus, the oven’s twin-wall design with concentric air exhaust provides exceptional cooling to near-ambient temperatures without resorting to liquid cryogen – critical for analysis of VOCs. The Clarus 690 GC features a wide-range flame ionization detector (FID), a new high-performance capillary injector with decreased reactivity, and autosampler technology that delivers multiple options for liquid injection, headspace, and SPME on one system.

This system is driven by our TotalChrom chromatography data system (CDS) that serves as both an instrument controller and a data management system, making it the best choice for data handling in demanding multiuser, multisite environments where a number of instruments are in use. Plus, the TotalChrom system’s unique data protection features ensure that data acquisition processes aren’t disrupted or compromised. Plus, our GC instruments feature an intuitive touch-screen interface with real-time signal display and eight-language support for greatly simplified user interaction.

The calibration/Internal standards are available but must be ordered separately.
