Description

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 minimal signal-to-noise ratio leading to reliable and reproducible analysis results.
