Other Considerations:


Use the GC-FID Test Mix: In order to provide you with best possible experience, we highly recommend ordering either the miniGC Accessory Kit, or a GC-FID Test Mix (Lucidity PN: R35108 or Restek PN: 35108) with your system.  It is the same standard we use to QC your system before it leaves our facility, and you will see 3 runs of this GC-FID Test Mix in the Results section of your miniGC when it arrives.  We encourage users to run the miniGC Test Mix again once they have unpacked their system to ensure proper operation of the system.  At any point if you are having issues with your system, we will ask you run the Test Mix (additional and new Test Mixes can be purchased through either Lucidity or Restek) to check the performance of your system.  The Test Mix is a great way for both us and you to monitor performance of your system to make sure it is operating at the same high level we both expect it to.




Ordering Additional Columns: If you want an additional column to the MXT-5 Starter Column, you can choose from fused silica or metal capillary columns on Restek’s site ( or any other GC column provider, provided that these columns are wound in a coil diameter of 4 inches or less.

You can either order the GC columns from any GC column vendor and install them yourself onto a Lucidity column holder, or you can order them preinstalled on a column holder from Restek.

When ordering from Restek, remember to add a “-LUC18”, “-LUC25”, or “-LUC53” to the part number of the column depending upon the ID of the column to get the column preinstalled into a miniGC Column Holder.  For example, the PN for a MXT-5 (30m x 0.25mm x 0.25um) column in a miniGC Column Holder is 70223-LUC25.  For more info see the Restek site (





Gasses: You will need to ensure that you have the correct gas line hookups to run the miniGC.  The miniGC requires 2-3 gasses to run the system (Helium, Hydrogen, or Nitrogen as the carrier gas, and Hydrogen and High Purity Compressed Air for the detector).  There is an 1/8″ compression fitting on the back of the miniGC for each of the 3 gas hookups, so you will need to ensure that you have three 1/8″ metal lines coming from each gas source to connect into the back of the miniGC each with a pressure regulator in line to control the input pressure of each line to 50 -100 psi.
