LUCIDITY MINI GC, Gas Chromatograph-flame ionization detector (GC-FID)

GC-FID. With the smallest oven of any fully functional GC on the market, the miniGC can ramp all the way to 400C at 60C/min and can cool from 400C to 50C in 5 minutes, meaning it heats faster and cools faster than any of the traditional GCs. This allows for much faster analysis times and much less down time between runs.
