Gas Chromatography

Since our first Gas Chromatograph (GC) was introduced in 1956, Shimadzu has been developing innovative Gas Chromatography solutions. From simplified user interfaces to tool-free maintenance technology, Shimadzu GC systems are built with the operators in mind.  Each system in the product line-up was built with different users in mind. Whether your lab needs a rugged, simple to use box or a highly sensitive research tool, Shimadzu has a system to fit the needs of the laboratory.

Gas Chromatography (GC) Instruments

Nexis GC-2030 Gas Chromatograph

Nexis GC-2030 Gas Chromatograph

Maintenance and ease of use have never been simpler with the Nexis GC-2030.  With features like a full color, touchscreen display, tool-free maintenance, and the ability to use alternative carrier gases, operators have never been more in control. System can be configured with multiple inlets and detectors including the new SCD-2030 detector.
GC-2014 Gas Chromatograph

GC-2014 Gas Chromatograph

The GC-2014 is made to run when put through harsh conditions. With it's compact size and versatility, it can be used for everything from routine QA/QC work to specialty applications. Using everything from capillary to packed inlets, columns, and detectors, the GC-2014 is our most customizable unit available.
GC-8A Gas Chromatograph

GC-8A Gas Chromatograph

Reliability and compact best describe the Shimadzu GC-8 gas chromatograph. This unit is great for laboratories looking to run the most basic applications or looking to instruct new users GC.
System GC

System GC

With the flexibility of the entire GC product line, Shimadzu can offer GC systems built with a specific application focus. At our US headquarters in Columbia, MD, we have a full system integration and testing facility to build specialty and custom GC configurations based on an application need. These systems include following specific standard test methods such as the analysis of Natural Gas by GPA 2261 and Transformer Oil as Analysis System (TOGAS) by ASTM D3612 or a custom valve configuration determined by a need in your laboratory.

GC Sample Introduction Options

AOC-20 Auto Injector/Auto Sampler

AOC-20 Auto Injector/Auto Sampler

There is automation to fit any budget. The AOC-20i autoinjector can be used for a few samples or many when combined with the AOC-20s autosampler carousel.
AOC-6000 Series Multifunctional Auto sampler

AOC-6000 Multifunctional Autosampler

With automated pretreatment and the ability to switch between three GC/MS sample injection modes – liquid, headspace, and solid phase micro extraction – the AOC-6000 dramatically improves GCMS and GC analysis productivity.

Optic-4 Inlet for GC sample introduction

Optic-4 Inlet for Gas Chromatography

Offering multiple modes of injection including ultra-fast heating and large-volume injection, the Optic-4 can easily accommodate a wide variety of applications.
HS-10 Headspace GC Sampler

HS-10 Headspace GC Sampler

A cost-effective HS-10 headspace sampler offers a smaller carousel and loop mode sampling, great for routine laboratory work.
HS-20 Headspace GCMS and GC Samplers

HS-20 Headspace GC-MS Samplers

With both loop and loop/trap models, the HS-20 dedicated headspace sampler is an optimal solution for analyzing a wide range of volatile organic components (VOCs) in a variety of sample matrices. Perfect for use with either GC or GC-MS.
Frontier GCMS Pyrolyzer for Pyrolysis GCMS

Frontier Lab Pyrolyzer and Accessories

Not all GC and GCMS samples can be liquid or gas, sometimes solids like plastics need to be analyzed. Using the PY3030 operators can characterize virtually any organic material, from biomass to synthetic polymers using single- or dual-stage pyrolysis. The system comes equipped to run multiple techniques including Evolved Gas (EGA), Single-shot Analysis (PY) and many more.
TD-30 series GCMS Thermal Desorption Unit

TD-30 series Thermal Desorption Unit

The TD-30 is the optimal solution for gas and materials analysis. Its outstanding processing ability and excellent expandability provide strong support for all types of analysis, for example measuring air quality in buildings, VOCs of interior car materials, or even odors in packaging.

Advanced Chromatography Techniques

Multi-Dimensional Gas Chromatography System

Multi-Dimensional Gas Chromatograph

This multi-dimensional heart cutting gas chromatography system, incorporating a “multi-Deans switch,” greatly increases separation power and simplifies the normally difficult separation and quantification of compounds in complex, multi-component samples.
Comprehensive GCxGC System

Comprehensive GCxGC System

Shimadzu’s GC x GC offers about 10 times greater peak capacity of conventional one-dimensional chromatography, allowing separation of overlapping peaks based on differences in polarity.
Backflushing System

Backflushing System

The backflush gas chromatography system discharges high-boiling point components efficiently through the injection port split vent to reduce analysis time, and prevent column deterioration and detector contamination.
Detector Splitting System

Detector Splitting System

This system splits compounds eluting from an analytical column to multiple detectors to obtain multiple chromatograms, saving laboratories time and money.
Detector Switching System

Detector Switching System

This Gas Chromatograph uses a switching element at the column outlet to direct separated target compounds into multiple, appropriate detectors without a loss in sensitivity.
