Nexis GC-2030 - Options

Options for Expanding Your Productivity

Simultaneously Control Up to Three Injection Units and Four Detectors

Up to four types of injection units or six types of detectors can be selected depending on the purpose of analysis and target components. Four detectors can be controlled simultaneously using LabSolutions.

Note: The number of detectors installed depends on the type. The injection port can control up to two devices simultaneously.



Split/Splitless Injector (SPL)
-  The carrier gas saver function reduces split gas consumption.
-  Inactivation options
Direct Injection Unit (WBI) - Shares and simplifies the glass inserts for splitless analysis (patented).
On-Column Injection Unit (OCI) - Supports analysis of high-boiling compounds (straight-chain hydrocarbons with 100 or more carbons)
Programmed Temperature Vaporization Injector (PTV) - Uses an inert heat-resistant quartz insert.
Packed Column Injection Unit (SINJ) - Glas s packed column and SUS packed column can be connected.


Detector (BID)

The barrier discharge ionization detector (BID-2030) is a universal detector that offers high-sensitivity analysis by using a low-frequency dielectric barrier discharge plasma for ionization. The BID generates helium (He) plasma by applying a high voltage to a quartz glass tube. The light energy from the He plasma then ionizes the target components and the ions are collected and output as peaks using a collection electrode. A wide variety of compounds other than He and neon (Ne) are detected with high sensitivity.
Ionization Detector (FID)

The jet and collector structure on the flame ionization detector (FID-2030) has been optimized to provide improved performance. Noise levels were also decreased by improving the stability of the signal processor and flow controller. This results in the world’s most sensitive FID*.
Chemiluminescence Detector (SCD)

SCDs are the most sensitive GC detectors for measuring sulfur components. The Nexis SCD-2030 is equipped with an ultra-short flow path and high efficiency redox cell, so it provides the world’s highest level* of sensitivity and stability. In addition, detector startup is automated, easing the burden on operators.
Detector (TCD)
- Enables more reliable analysis that is less easily affected by column oven temperature.
- Analysis for inorganic gases and high-concentration organic compounds.
Detector (FPD)
- A novel optical system with a more advanced dual-focus system results in the world's highest* sensitivity.
- Analysis for organic phosphorus compounds and sulfur compounds.
Detector (ECD)
- High sensitivity and a wide dynamic range are achieved by adopting ECD cell structure and purge flowrate optimization, as well as highly durable materials.
- Analysis for electrophilic compounds.
Detector (FTD)
- An improved collector reduces the negative peaks from impurity components.
- Collectors can be replaced without tools.
- Analysis for organic nitrogen compounds and organic phosphorus compounds.
