GC5

The Highest Sensitivity GC-IRMS system

Compound specific isotope analysis provides a deep level insight into many geochemical and forensic applications and is considered to be a crucial technique for many laboratories. The GC5 offers exceptional sensitivity for low concentration analytes whilst maintaining chromatographic integrity of sample peaks during compound conversion. As a VAR partner of Agilent Technologies, the GC5 system takes full advantage of the market leading Agilent 7890B GC system to create the highest performance GC-IRMS system for your research.
