Nitrogen-specific detector that produces a linear and equimolar response to nitrogen compounds.
The Agilent 8255 Nitrogen Chemiluminescence Detector (NCD) is a nitrogen-specific detector that produces a linear and equimolar response to nitrogen compounds. This is accomplished by using a stainless steel burner to achieve high temperature combustion of nitrogen containing compounds to form nitric oxide (NO). A photomultiplier tube detects the light produced by the subsequent chemiluminescent reaction of NO with ozone. Because of the specificity of the reaction, complex sample matrices can be analyzed with little or no interference
- Nitrogen-specific detection for gas chromatography (GC)
- Picogram-level detection limits
- No hydrocarbon quenching
- Linear, equimolar response to organic nitrogen compounds
- Responds to ammonia, hydrazine, hydrogen cyanide, and NOX
- Redesigned Burner and Detector, the NCD also has a nitrosamines specific configured option
