The Polyarc® System


Same GC. Same Software. Better Data.

The Polyarc system is a breakthrough innovation that combines catalysis with chemical analysis to revolutionize 60 year-old GC/FID technology. Give your FID a universal and uniform carbon response with a 7-order of magnitude linear range from <100 ppb to 100% for nearly all organic compounds. The Polyarc technology converts all organic molecules to methane after chromatographic separation for a truly uniform FID response. Improve your data quality, diagnose GC issues, and speed up analysis.

The Polyarc System

what are current polyarc users saying?

"Having a Polyarc System in our lab...

...makes compound independent calibration possible, saving time and cost associated with calibrations."

...allows compounds with little to no response in the FID to be analyzed, further simplifying GC operation."

...enhances analytical capabilities, allowing chemists to perform analyses previously inaccurate or even impossible."

...allows us to get a closer formula on the first injection, eliminating re-runs and saving valuable time."

Better Data Quality
