Excellent Detector Performance
The 6000 Series LC system comes with a portfolio of detectors including Ultraviolet and Diode Array Detector, Fluorescence and Refractive Index all designed for stability, precision, and sensitivity.
Low Volume Degassing Options
The low-volume degassing unit reduces solvent purging time and reduces the amount of solvent used
To avoid any salt precipitation from the mobile phase. The SCION 6000 Series HPLC can be configured with an auto plunger washing mechanism that prevents damage to the pump seal or the plunger.
Extra Large Solvent Cabinet
The SCION 6510 Organiser is designed for multiple-liquid operation and can hold different bottle sizes to accommodate multiple applications.
Manual Injection Valve
For educational purposes, or low throughput applications a manual injector can be added to the 6000 Series instead of the 6210/6220 Autosampler. A manual valve ensures great repeatability for situations where a single good result is needed.
Superior Gradient Performance and Excellent Flow Rate Precision
The SCION 6100 Quaternary pump has a new low-pressure mode called High Frequency Mode (HFM), which utilises a double switching function of proportioning valves. HFM with the high-speed real-time feedback control system greatly suppresses liquid pulsation for superior reproducibility of gradient and retention times.
Excellent Injection Volume Precision and Ultra-Low Carry-Over
The high-precision syringe drive unit provides excellent injection volume precision. Dead volume in the SCION 6210/6220 Autosampler flow path has been minimised. Syringe washing protocols, and stringent temperature control has resulted in a superior precision autosampler with extremely low carry-over.
Peltier-Based Heating and cooling
The SCION 6310 Column Oven delivers accurate Peltier-based heating cooling profiles, delivering sharp peaks with excellent peak symmetry. The column oven accommodates three 250 mm analytical columns fitted with a guard-column. We are able to offer a full product line of LC columns with our 6000 Series HPLC, effective immediately. A wide selection of base materials, dimensions, functional groups, and particle sizes are now available to fit most HPLC applications. For more demanding applications, the SCION 6320 column oven can house three 400mm columns or six 150mm columns.
Compass CDs Control
The SCION LC 6000 Liquid Chromatograph offers complete support through CompassCDS, adding full instrument control and automation, a complete suite of integration, calibration and reporting tools whilst allowing for full 21CFR11 compliance
