New High Temperature GPC/SEC System with improved Sensitivity and Automation for Polyolefin Analysis.
Polymer Char announces the development of a renewed reliable and fully automated 4D Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC/SEC) system with a significant improvement in the IR detectors to measure the composition and molar mass of polyolefins. The new GPC-IR instrument incorporates new features such as the full integration of the new infrared detector IR5 MCT, with outstanding sensitivity and stability to measure both concentration and composition (SCB/1000C). In addition, other detectors such as a four capillary bridge viscometer and a multi-angle light scattering for Long Chain Branching (LCB) can be coupled to Polymer Char GPC-IR becoming the most advanced instrumentation for SEC analyses.
