NOVAPID FOR GC

A COMPACT PID FOR EASY INSTALLATION IN GC SYSTEMS WITH BUILT-IN CONNECTION COLUMNS. THE MICRO-FLUIDIC TECHNOLOGY AND ENHANCES EMI SHIELDING DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES THE SENSITIVITY.

A PID FOR GC

The NovaPID is a revolutionary photoionization detector (PID) designed especially for use in gas chromatography. Users can easily install or uninstall the PID in most gas chromatographs with the built-in connection column. The adoption of micro technology and enhanced EMI shielding dramatically improves its sensitivity. The NovaPID is also highly flexible for customizations, and users are welcome to choose the connection column and the UV lamp suitable to their application.

HIGHLIGHTS

Icon 1

Excellent Performance

The NovaPID exhibits a quick response with high precision and wide detection range from 1 ppb to 10,000 ppm. Its sensitivity matches that of an FID, while performing better for aromatic compounds. It can also detect organic compounds such as hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, which an FID cannot.
Icon 2

Safe & Cost Effective

The NovaPID adopts UV to ionize the gas molecules so that no additional make up gas is needed. This makes the PID much more safer and cost effective. Additionaly, the NovaPID does not destroy the molecules, making it perfect for coupling with secondary characterization.

Easy Installation

There are columns attached on both ends of the gas flow pass of the NovaPID so that it can be easily installed and uninstalled in a gas chromatograph. Electrical pins at the bottom enable direct plug-in to a  GC circuit. No additional accessories are needed.
Icon 4

Customizable

The NovaPID is compatible with most gas chromatographs. Users can customize the PID based on their requirements by choosing the guard column and the UV lamp with photon energy of 11.7 eV, 10.6 eV, 10.0 eV or 9.6 eV.

FAQS

Simply attach the guard column to the capillary column in your GC using capillary column connectors. Then connect the pins at the bottom to your electrical boards for powering and signal collection.

Yes. The 3 pins are for power supply, ground and signal output, separately. When used with the PCB we provide for the NovaPID, a specific direction has to be applied to insert the pins into the holes on the PCB.

Yes. Like most commercial PIDs, the PID outputs the signal in form of voltage. A user will need to use an circuit system to collect the voltage information and convert the signal into chemical amount by comparing signals from known amount of the same compound.
Several picogram (10^-12 gram) to several hundreds of nanogram (10^-9 gram) of a chemical.

VOCs and volatile inorganic compounds that have ionization energies less than 10.6 eV. These includes more than 300 species. A list of detectable compounds can be found here.
