Gasera, Ltd.


Product name: PA301; FT-IR-Accessory; Ultrahigh performance photoacoustic detector for solid, semisolid, and liquid samples.

Used for: Laboratory analysis.

Measurement mode: Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS).

Description: Photoacoustic detector for solid, semisolid, and liquid samples; software can be used in other equipment, is compatible with other manufacturers' equipment.

Suggested applications: Dark samples (for example, bitumen, rubber, and so forth), pharma quality control, soil samples, paper and wood analysis, tissue samples, food analysis, explosives, depth profiling.

Primary benefits: Spectrum is also independent of sample morphology, contactless and nonconsuming, possibility for depth profiling, suitable for optically opaque samples.

Unique features: Patented ultrasensitive optical cantilever sensor. Includes a built in flow meter for helium purge.

Product name: FTIR accessory: PA101 FTIR-accessory, (sample cell + detector): Photoacoustic gas analysis module.

Used for: Laboratory analysis.

Measurement mode: Photoacoustic.

Description: Photoacoustic accessory detector for gases; software Available as separate product, may be used in other equipment, compatible with other manufacturers' equipment.

Suggested applications: Headspace analysis, analysis of decomposition products, analysis of synthesis processes, or outgassing of materials, wet gases, measurements requiring high dynamic range, measurements requiring low sample volume.

Primary benefits: High sensitivity from very small volume (volume < 10 mL), wide linear dynamic range due to the short optical pathlength, measures directly the absorption in gases.

Unique features: Utilizes Gasera's patented ultrasensitive optical cantilever sensor.

Glass Expansion, Inc.


Product name: U-Series Nebulizers.

Used for: Atomic spectroscopy; consumable accessory for ICP-AES and ICP-MS instruments.

Suggested applications: Ideal for all applications of ICP-AES and ICP-MA.

Primary benefits: The U-Series line of concentric glass nebulizers improves the sample line/nebulizer interface is easy to connect. Dead volume has been eliminated thus speeding sample washout. The internal sample channel is uniform from one end to the other.

Unique features: Zero dead volume interface eliminates carryover. Designed to be compatible with the company's HPLC interface kit.
