DVLS GC2 Modulator

Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions is proud to introduce the DVLS GC2 Modulator: the first two-stage modulator for GC×GC based on thermoelectric cooler (TEC). The TEC technique eliminates the need for cryogens and requires only a minimal maintenance. The modular design and small footprint of the GC2 Modulator allows an easy installation on any GC platform.

A GC×GC SOLUTION THAT PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT RESOLUTION

The DVLS GC2 Modulator is a versatile and premium thermal modulator, suitable for most GC×GC applications in research and conventional testing laboratories, online monitoring and even in the field.
Comprehensive two-dimensional GC (GC×GC) is a chromatographic separation technique that connects two independent columns with a different stationary phase in series via a dedicated modulator. All compounds that elute from the first column are concentrated in the modulator and injected in pulse with a fixed frequency to the second column for further separation. Co-eluters in the first column will probably be resolved in the second column, achieving the orthogonal separation.

As the thermal modulator usually exhibits a better performance through narrow and sharp modulation peaks and is more compatible to mass spectrometers, it has been extensively employed in the petrochemical, environmental, flavor and fragrance industries.
