General description

SupraSolv® ECD and FID is specially developed for gas chromatography in combination with ECD (Electron Capture Detetor) and FID (Flame Ionization detector).
SupraSolv® solvents offer the largest specified retention time range, a clear baseline and a minimum signal-to-noise ratio leading to reliable and reproducible analysis results.

Application

Ideal for GC applications including sensitive detection in residue and environmental analysis.
The product is used as a solvent/reagent in:
  • sample preparation for determination of chlorinated pesticides according to EPA method 508
  • pesticide residue analysis by fast GC and GC-MS
  • determination of folpet and phthalimide in food by LC-MS
  • quantification of cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes in human blood by large volume injection coupled to GC/MS
  • detection of fatty acids in cooking oils by GC
