Ethylene Acetaldehyde Ethanol

Real-time analysis of plant metabolic indicators

Sensor Gas Chromatograph SGEA-P3

“Small amounts of metabolites emitted by plants cannot be measured in greenhouses or laboratories.”
“GC-MS has some hurdles because of its high price and complexity of carrier gas cylinder handling.”
“Gas analysis at a research instituion will require large amount of emission gas and concentrate it to analytical level.”

Nissha FIS will overturn such common sense.

Sensor Gas Chromatograph SGEA-P3

Nissha FIS’s Sensor Gas Chromatograph SGEA-P3 detects ethylene, acetaldehyde, and ethanol in a low-concentration range of ppb order as the plant’s aging hormone.
It can be installed on research sites such as laboratories, warehouses, containers, and greenhouses because of
– Table Top Size Compact Equipment
– Not to use high pressure cylinders
– No preparation for sample concentrating
– Continuous measurement between 10-15 minutes

In the field of agricultural research, such as postharvest and flower shelf life, SGEA-P3 offers a data that no one has seen yet.

About Sensor Gas Chromatograph

The sample gas is separated by a small column and detected by the semiconductor type gas sensor.
The type of gas is determined by the retention time from the sample injection to detection.

Sensor Gas Chromatograph SGEA-P3

For metabolic analysis of plants /SGEA-P3

The sensor gas Chromatograph SGEA-P3 is ideal for metabolic analysis of plants.
– SGEA-P3-C for ethylene measurement
– SGEA-P3-A for acetaldehyde and ethanol measurement

We can also consult with you about customization,
such as “to measure ethylene and acetaldehyde at the same time” and “Other gases mesurement.”

Feature

Super sensitive measurement of quite small amounts of gas

Since extremely high sensitive semiconductor gas sensor is used as a detector, ppb (parts per billion) level measurement can be realized.

Easy operation/short time measurement

Simply injecting sample gas starts measurement automatically. The measurement is completed in 4 or 8 minutes.

No carrier gas cylinder required

SGC uses ambient air as carrier gas so that high pressure gas cylinder is not necessary.

Small size/light weight/Portable

Our original technology including a short length column has realized a small size (B4 size) and light weight (6.5kg) unit with excellent portability that does not require a limited installation site.

Real time data viewing with attached software

SGC is supplied with a standard software displaying the real-time measurement results on PC. This software has various features such as chromatography chart, gas concentration display, and continuous measurement (optional) display.
*Please supply your own PC.

*PC is not included.

Real time data viewing with attached software*PC is not included.

Customizable

SGC can be customized to meet your demand.

Examples:

  • For use with high purity air cylinder as carrier gas, if the ambient air around SGC is polluted, etc.
  • Automatic gas injection and continuous measurement (continuous monitoring is possible by automatic sampling function)
  • For the measurement of other gas than currently available gases

Continuous measurement (automatic gas injector)*Optional feature

Automatic continuous measurement is possible by setting total measurement duration time or total measurement times.
