CHRONECT Mistral™| Temperature Controller
Stable and precise oven
Dependable temperature control for better separations
The CHRONECT Mistral Cool is a high-performance HPLC/UHPLC column temperature controller. Powered by Peltier technology combined with a forced air oven for rapid equilibration, the CHRONECT Mistral Cool can control temperatures accurately over a range of 5o C. to 75o C. This range is broad enough to accommodate virtually any chromatographic separation. The stability of the oven is further enhanced with the circulating air bath, while the mobile phase pre-heater reduces any temperature gradients across the column.
With its vapour sensor and integrated solvent pre-heater, the MISTRAL™ offers stable and precise temperature control to optimize your HPLC or UHPLC assay. As you will easily recognize, retention times will be more constant with constant temperature, but varying the temperature can also be of great help to tune selectivity, improve peak shape and reduce analysis time. Plus, high temperatures reduce column back pressure significantly, allowing higher solvent flow rates, narrower columns or smaller particles.
