Reno, Nevada (August 15, 2011) - Hamilton Company, world leader in fluid measurement, 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."
