HPLC-ECD system for the sensitive and selective analysis of carbohydrates
Highly sensitive analytical system with electrochemical detector
This dedicated system is specifically designed for the analysis of carbohydrates with pulsed amperometric detection (PAD) on a gold electrode.
Carbohydrates are important in the manufacturing of many foods, pharmaceuticals and biofuels. The heart of this system is the AZURA ECD 2.1 electrochemical detector. This detector enables the quantification of the smallest amounts of carbohydrates due to its extraordinary sensitivity and comes with an integrated column thermostat. In combination with the SenCell Au HyREF flow cell, carbohydrates can be detected by pulsed amperometry. More systems components are the AZURA P 6.1L pump in its bio-inert LPG version and the AZURA AS 6.1L bio-inert autosampler. Therefore, an interesting application is the analysis of wood sugars and uronic acids for biofuel research.
