SCION Instruments, Gas Chromatography solutions
Built on the history of Chrompack and Varian in GC and GC-MS, SCION Instruments was acquired by the Techcomp group in 2014.
SCION Instruments designs, develops, supplies and supports GC, GC-MS and Compass CDS (chromatography data system) product lines.
The company prides itself for manufacturing in Europe at facilities in Goes, The Netherlands with its headquarters based in Livingston, Scotland. SCION Instruments maintains a global infrastructure to support sales around the world. As well as providing support for SCION Instruments customers, there is also service and support available for users of legacy Varian systems.
SCION SQ GC-MS
The SCION (SQ) GC-MS is designed for today’s fast paced analytical laboratory. Innovative design features such as a Lens-Free ion path, heated ion optics and an Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) detector enable the SCION SQ to deliver accurate quantification and identification on a routine basis, even in complex matrices. As ions pass through a mass spectrometer a significant portion is lost every time they encounter a lens. Due to its unique design the SCION SQ doesn’t have any lenses thus increasing the sensitivity of the instrument by reducing ion losses. Another major advantage of having no lenses the source is the only part to clean, so you can spend more time analyzing samples and less time maintaining your instrument. The SQ is integrated with our SCION 436 or 456 GC as sole or as additional detector.
- Innovative lens-free ion path delivers simplifies tuning
- Off axis source and detector increase sensitivity
- Active focusing Q0
- Dual filament source increases uptime
- Compound-based scanning software
