Tracera High Sensitivity Gas Chromatograph System

The Tracera comes with Plasma technology which is the future of GC detection. The system utilizes the new Barrier Discharge Ionization Detector (BID) technology coupled with a GC-2010 Plus capillary gas chromatograph to create a GC system that makes it possible to reveal trace components that are difficult to see by other GC detectors.

Plasma Technology for Universal Trace Analysis

The barrier discharge ionization detector (BID) is a highly sensitive device that creates ionization from a Helium-based, dielectric barrier discharge plasma. A 17.7eV plasma is generated by applying a high voltage to a quartz dielectric chamber, in the presence of helium at a relatively low temperature.Compounds that elute from the GC column are ionized by this He plasma energy and then detected by the collection electrode and processed as peaks.The BID provides a detection sensitivity over 100X higher than Thermal conductivity Detection (TCD), 2X higher than Flame Ionization Detector (FID). Across the different compound classes, the BID is more sensitive and exhibits a more consistent response than the FID. With a maximum operating temperature of 350 Deg C, the BID is capable of analyzing compounds upto n-C44.

  • Detection sensitivity over 100x higher than TCD, 2X higher than FID
  • Single detector approach for complex analyses
  • Long term stability with new discharge design.
