Gas Chromatography (GC)

GCECD

The new GC laboratory is equipped with an Agilent 7890 GC with a micro electron capture detector (uECD) and a thermo-conductivity detector (TCD) as well as an Agilent 6850 GC with a mass spectrometer(MSD). There is also a portable Agilent 3000A micro GC available for gases (H2, O2, N2, CO, CO2 and CH4) analysis on site. Currently, the GC lab is setting up for determination of hydrocarbons, pesticides, herbicides and PCB extracted from soil, sediments, water and plant tissues. It is also prepared to determine the banned substances -PBB and PBDE in electronic products for EU ROHS/WEEE compliance.
