Environmental Analysis 35 World’s Smallest FTIR Spectrometer Introduced
Agilent Technologies (USA) introduces the Cary 630 Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, offering outstanding performance and reproducibility for routine laboratory analysis of solids, liquids and gases. In addition, the new instrument is the smallest and lightest FTIR spectrometer on the market, creating a significant decrease in the instrument’s footprint in the laboratory.
Designed with customer applications in mind, innovative sampling accessories slide in and out in seconds, with no alignment required. Intuitive software allows even novice users to accurately analyse samples in just seconds. The Cary 630 FTIR removes the need to use a liquid transmission cell through Agilent’s unique liquid sampling technology, the DialPath and TumblIR.
“Agilent is all about improving customer workflow and providing solutions that will save time and money,” said Philip Binns, Agilent vice president for spectroscopy products. “The Cary 630 FTIR will change the way our customers approach measuring samples. It provides exceptional value, performance and usability all packed into the smallest instrument available in the market.”
Ideal for QA/QC in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, the Cary 630 FTIR is also well suited for academic research and teaching labs. The intuitive, multi-language software guides users through every step of operation, while colour-coded alerts make it easy to see whether samples meet specification.
Dimensions of 16 x 22 x 13 cm make it the smallest and lightest FTIR on the market. Reader Reply Card No. 90
New Platform for Sensitive and Accurate Analysis of Contamination and Impurities SQ 8 Gas Chromatography/ Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), setting a new industry benchmark for sensitivity and
PerkinElmer (USA) announces the launch of its Clarus®
stability. The Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS provides extreme sensitivity to analyse samples accurately, with an 800:1 signal to noise specification. This capability gives environmental and food testing laboratories the ability to detect lower levels of contaminants and impurities.
The Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS delivers superior throughput and productivity by minimising requirements for calibration of instruments and reducing the need for sample preparation and concentration, dramatically improving workflow. PerkinElmer’s Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS provides accurate results, which allows environmental and food testing laboratories to comply with new and evolving regulatory requirements that drive compliance in environmental and food applications.
“The quality and safety of food products are major issues worldwide, and accurate analysis of pesticide residues and other contaminants is imperative to monitor the interplay between human and environmental health,” said Dusty Tenney, president, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer. “We work hand-in-hand with the world’s leading environmental and food testing labs, and our introduction of the new Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS emphasises our commitment to giving
customers the right tools to solve the growing challenges of these markets.” Reader Reply Card No. 91
New GC Autosampler Syringes Deliver Leak-Free Performance
Hamilton Company (USA) introduces a new line of syringes for GC (gas chromatography) headspace autosamplers. Designed to work with PAL* COMBI-xt GC headspace autosamplers, which are sold under many brand names, the new syringes feature a unique spring-in-plunger design for leak-free operation. The spring keeps the PTFE plunger tip against the glass barrel, preventing gaps that can occur with GC temperature fluctuations.
The rugged Hamilton syringes demonstrate a long lifetime over a large range of temperatures and gradients. All Hamilton syringes meet stringent requirements for dimensional accuracy, needle length, gauge, tip and lifetime. The new GC headspace autosampler syringes are offered in six volume/needle gauge combinations.
"Our engineers have developed an inventive solution that improves overall GC results," explains Mark Carrier, chromatography market segment manager for Hamilton. “The fact that CTC specifies the Hamilton syringe demonstrates the superiority of our product’s design and performance.”

A faultless and comparable analysis is closely linked to accurate sample handling. Only a sample representative of the initial material can provide meaningful analysis results. This can be achieved by using a rotating sample divider, such as Retsch’s (Germany) new PT 100. It divides the sample so exactly that the composition of each of the 6, 8 or 10 fractions corresponds exactly to that of the original bulk sample. This applies both for fine-powdered and coarse materials up to 10 mm feed size. The material feed and dividing processes take place automatically and without loss of material.
The new rotary tube divider PT 200 allows for the representative, dust-free division and reduction of larger volumes of bulk goods. The ratio of the fractions is freely adjustable. Both dividers feature digital time setting and comfortable quick-release clamps.
