Detail Information

The D-Swafer Dean's Switch Kit is for new Clarus GCs with programmable pneumatic control (PPC) and includes: D-Swafer Dean's Switch, all required installation hardware and user guides. PerkinElmer's Swafer platform is a micro-channel wafer technology, providing Clarus®580 and 680 GC users with additional application flexibility, while delivering richer sample information, increased sensitivity, lower maintenance costs and increased sample throughput. The D-Swafer is based on the classical Deans' Switch principle, but may be configured in multiple ways to provide a variety of features:

  • Inlet, column, and detector switching and isolation - provide maximum application flexibility
  • Heartcutting (Deans Switch) - allows separation of selected peaks within a complex sample matrix
  • Solvent venting/column-bleed venting - removes undesirable materials from the GC system
  • Sample backflushing - for removing heavy sample residue
  • Carrier gas swapping
  • Polarity tuning - allows tweaking of column selectivity durinchromatography to optimize difficult separations
  • Selective peak attenuation - enables specific peaks to battenuated to monitor a larger dynamic range

Additional Swafers can be purchased separately: S-Swafer (part no.N9306262); D-Swafer (part no. N9306251.
