Which flow cell suits your application best?

Remote HPLC detection

KNAUER fiber optic technology offers the possibility to separate the flow cell spatially from the detector via fiber optic cables in a distance up to 10 meters. This enables the measurement of UV/ VIS absorption in flow-through mode remotely from the detector.

Fiber optics enable the flow cell to be located very close to the column, minimizing peak broadening.

The UV nano flow cell with fiber optics technology from KNAUER received the Best of Industry award 2017.

Mass Spectrometry solution out of the box

Chip-based single quadrupole mass spectrometer

The 4000 MiD is a miniaturized chipbased single quadrupole mass spectrometer suitable for a broad range of applications.
An integrated oil-free pump system enables a small footprint and thereby the installation of this detector nearly everywhere.

Refractive Index Detector Kit That Fits

Detection of small amounts of dissolved compounds with little or no absorption in the UV/V is spectral range represents an analytical challenge even today. The differential refractometer is an established work-horse for the detection of alcohols, sugars, lipids or polymers in HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) and GPC (gel permeation chromatography).

No chromophor? No problem.
