In cooperation with the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions has developed the GC Fractionator: an application that automates the collection of micro fractions for a GC-MS analysis. Essential part of the application is the XYZ sampler combined with the Da Vinci smart grip.
Gas chromatography (GC) is a superior technique for separating many compounds. The fractionation of compounds from a GC analysis requires a complex setup and allows to collect only a limited number of fractions. Therefore a post-column fractionation after a liquid chromatography analysis is preferably used. The VU university of Amsterdam developed a new analytical technology for a highly efficient, high-resolution and high-yield fractionation of compounds after a GC separation. Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions engineered the dedicated hardware parts and also developed the software to automate the fractionation.
