The problem with almost every other type of detector is that there is a bias. The bias might be that one analyte responds more than another or that mobile phase affects detection differently. A charged aerosol detector measures analyte charge that is in direct proportion to the amount of the analyte present.
Thermo Scientific™ charged aerosol detectors can be used with the most up-to-date liquid chromatography instruments to measure analytes that cannot be seen by UV and may not be readily detected with other detection techniques, including molecules without chromophores.
- Ability to detect non-volatile and many semi-volatile analytes
- Consistent response independent of chemical structure
- For HPLC and UHPLC
- Compatibility with gradient conditions
- Sub-nanogram sensitivity
- Simple and straightforward implementation in any lab setting
This uncomplicated technique can both increase the efficiency of existing analytical operations and open up entirely new possibilities by exploiting a range of analytes unnoticed by other techniques.
