Evaporative Light-Scattering Detector
Agilent Technologies Inc. has released the 1290 Infinity evaporative light-scattering detector and the 1260 Infinity evaporative light-scattering detector that provide up to 9x higher sensitivity, better efficiency and greater reproducibility than any currently available ELSD.
Both detectors are ideally suited for the analysis of non- and semi-volatile compounds in pharmaceutical, drug discovery, QA/QC, food quality testing, nutraceutical and fine chemical analysis. Both can screen pharmaceutical compound libraries without tedious sample preparation, because they eliminate interference from DMSO, a solvent widely used for sample storage in drug discovery, and both complement the Agilent 6100 Series mass spectrometer systems.
The laser-based 1290 Infinity ELSD shows up to 9x lower limits of detection than the previous model. The unique evaporator design, coupled with its proprietary gas-flow programming, allows sub-ambient analysis of semi-volatile compounds that cannot be detected with any other brand of ELSD.
The 1260 Infinity ELSD provides enhanced performance based on a proven LED light source and evaporator design at an affordable price. A standby mode enables energy savings as well as reduced nitrogen gas consumption by 50% to 75%.
