Ellutia launches 500 Series of chromatography instruments at Pittcon

Published: 7-Feb-2017

Ellutia Chromatography Solutions will display the first chromatography instrument able to perform conventional, fast and ultra-fast gas chromatography

The 500 Series Gas Chromatograph is a new concept in gas chromatography. It has the ability to perform conventional and fast gas chromatography with an air blown oven, and Ultra-Fast chromatography with directly heated columns.

Ultra Fast Gas Chromatography (UFGC) is both an advancement of the technology and method of typical GC, a core technique for chemical analysis in analytical laboratories worldwide.

Philip James, Managing Director at Ellutia said:

“When operating in conventional GC mode, the 500 series uses its compact air blown oven and patented low energy heat recovery heating system to deliver industry-standard performance while greatly reducing energy consumption for chromatographers.”

In ultra-fast mode, metal capillary columns are directly resistively heated, allowing increased ramp rates and upper temperature limits, as well as decreased cool down times and reduced energy consumption.

All of this combines to reduce cycle times by up to 10 times, while only using a fraction of the energy a conventional GC would require.

Ellutia will also display the compact 200 series GC and the 800 Series TEA. The latter is a highly sensitive chemiluminescence detector for nitro, nitroso and nitrogen-containing compounds.


Pittcon is the world’s leading annual conference and exposition on laboratory science. It attracts attendees from industry, academia and government from over 90 countries worldwide.

“We look forward to engaging with industry peers and having constructive discussion,” said James.

“Pittcon is always such a worthwhile experience. We can meet with many industry experts and discuss the wide range of challenges involved in providing chromatography instruments to a broad range of markets – from education and brewing, to materials testing and forensics.

Pittcon has evolved beyond its roots in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy into an event that now also serves a diverse constituency encompassing life sciences, pharmaceutical discovery and QA, food safety, environmental, bioterrorism and other emerging markets.

The event will be held in Chicago (Illinois, USA). Ellutia will be at Booth No. 5243.
