THERMO Scientific TRACE™ 1300 Gas Chromatograph

Reduce costs while maximizing productivity. Designed from the ground up for a new level of usability, the budget-friendly Thermo Scientific™ TRACE™ 1300 Gas Chromatograph gives you the ability to switch instant-connect injectors and detectors in minutes without tools for unprecedented flexibility. Its simplified user interface requires few keystrokes to accomplish tasks yet maintains full programmability. With its ability to boost productivity, accelerate response times, and lower total cost of ownership, this compact GC system is a smart investment for any lab.

Switch Injectors and Detectors in Minutes
Switch injectors and detectors in two minutes without special training or tools
Reduce maintenance downtime dramatically and be back to running samples in minutes
Switch to a different workflow or method instantly

Boost Productivity
Analyze dirtier matrices with minimum cleanup using the system’s robust injector technology
Analyze trace concentrations with smaller injection amounts and minimum preconcentration results using enhanced detector sensitivity and micro-volume technology
Protect system components and reduce run time and maintenance using optional backflush capabilities
Shorten sample cycle times using low thermal mass injectors and detectors and fast oven technology
Automate your entire workflow—from pipetting to injection—using a full range of sample handling options
Streamline and speed up data analysis using Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System (CDS) software

Lower Cost of Ownership
