Postcolumn Reactor Assemblies

Assemble Your Own System and Save!

Improve sensitivity for amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, inorganic ions, pesticides, and other samples. In postcolumn reactions, column effluent is mixed with a reagent before it enters the detector. The reaction can increase detection sensitivity or enable you to use more selective conditions (e.g., a different UV wavelength). The reaction can be as simple as changing the pH of the effluent, but the results often are significant. A postcolumn reaction system can be used to perform derivatizations or other reactions. It can be used with fluorescence, electrochemical, conductivity, and UV/visible detectors.

The equipment needed to perform postcolumn reactions can be relatively simple. These components enable you to easily and economically construct your own system.
