MicroGC / Mass spectrometer coupling
The SOLIA is a very fast gas analyzer using gas chromatography to separate compounds from a gas mixture in less than 3 minutes.
It is a modular instrument composed of 1 to 3 complementary analytical modules. Each module can analyze several compounds that are detected by a universal non-destructive detector. Then, a quadrupole mass spectrometer is used to formally identify each of the separate compounds.
A single interface allows the association of the 2 detectors in series, without loss of performance.
The analyzer allows the qualitative and quantitative analysis of complex gas mixtures. Most compounds are detected by the universal detector in a concentration range from 1 ppm to 100% with very good linearity. Mass spectrometer coupling improves sensitivity to 50 ppb or less.
