Benefits

The Lucidity GC-FID is the smallest, most affordable, most robust, easiest to use fully functional Gas Chromatograph (GC) on the market with the lowest cost of ownership.

EASIEST TO USE GC AVAILABLE

The software and hardware have been designed from the ground up to make the Lucidity GC-FID extremely intuitive to use so that even a novice can have success with gas chromatography and even an expert can get the performance and flexibility they are used to.

MOST AFFORDABLE GC AVAILABLE

Our prices are the lowest because we want to make gas chromatography available to everyone. You get everything you need to perform GC anlaysis all included in the system you purchase for one low price. We even offer a range of rental options.

LOWEST COST OF OWNERSHIP

With the most affordable service plans, free applications support, and no software licensing fees (software is included with the purchase of the Lucidity GC-FID) you will experience the lowest cost of ownership for any Gas Chromatograph.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS INCLUDED

We want to make it simple. You get everything you need to perform GC analysis when you purchase a Lucidity GC-FID, including a laptop, software, a column, and all the accessories you need.

SELF-INSTALLABLE IN UNDER 30 MINS

Because of the size, weight, and ease of use of the miniGC, you can set up your Lucidity GC-FID in under 30 minutes and be running samples. The system comes pre plumbed and includes a series of installation and training videos that walk you through set up of the system and are available any time you need for subsequent training.

ON SITE SWAP OR SWAP OUT SERVICE OPTIONS

Whether you want a trained service engineer to come on site or whether you want us to ship you a replacement system, we have you covered. Multiple options to fit your needs and keep you up and running!

FREE APPLICATIONS SUPPORT

We are only as successful as our customers. We have a team of highly trained analytical chemists available to assist in method development and applications support. And this service is free for all of our customers!

NO MORE GAS CYLINDERS

With the Lucidity GAS option, the Lucidity GC-FID is capable of performing Gas Chromatography without the need for external gas cylinders, which can be expensive, frustrating, and dangerous.

Features

SMALL FOOTPRINT

The Lucidity GC-FID has by far the smallest footprint of any fully functional GC out there.  It’s about that of a shoebox while about twice the height of a shoebox.  This makes the system ideal for putting in multiple locations, being able to move it when needed, and makes it very easy to install.

RAPID OVEN HEATING & COOLING

With the smallest oven of any fully functional GC on the market, the Lucidity GC-FID can ramp all the way to 400C at 60C/min and can cool from 400C to 50C in 5 minutes, meaning it heats faster and cools faster than any of the traditional GCs.  This allows for much faster analysis times and much less down time between runs.

HIGH TEMP OVEN

The oven can be programmed up to 400C making the miniGC capable of handling very difficult applications where you want to analyze very nonvolatile compounds.  This is one of the reasons the Lucidity GC-FID has very similar operating capabilities as the traditional larger, more expensive systems rather than being limited to much lower temperatures and therefore a smaller range of very volatile compounds as in portable systems.

SPLIT / SPLITLESS INJECTION PORT

The injection port is another key feature that makes the Lucidity GC-FID a true fully functional GC.  With its sophisticated flow controllers and refined, inert flow path, it is capable of operating in any of the split or splitless modes that users of high end, fully functional systems are used to and makes it capable of handling very concentrated and very dilute samples.

REMOVABLE COLUMN CARTRIDGES

One of the biggest pains with conventional GCs is installing and removing columns.  The Lucidity GC-FID allows you to install and remove standard GC columns as easily as you can put a video game cartridge into a gaming console, while eliminating potential user error that usually leads to small leaks or incorrect positioning of the column ends resulting in poor chromatography.

POWERFUL USER FRIENDLY INTERFACE

We have custom designed our user interface with the customer and ease of use in mind.  Our goal has always been to create an extremely powerful interface allowing full functionality but while also being extremely easy to navigate with no training required.  If it requires a manual to use, it’s probably too complicated.

MATCHES THE RESULTS OF TRADITIONAL GCs

Although the Lucidity GC-FID is dramatically smaller, lower cost, and easier to use, the chromatograms produced with the Lucidity GC-FID are indistinguishable from results produced by other traditional GCs, so that results can be matched and compared to literature results, historical data, and outside lab results.

The Lucidity GAS gas generator

The Lucidity GAS can be ordered along with the Lucidity GC-FID to supply all the needed gasses to the Lucidity GC-FID.  The Lucidity GAS is the same footprint as the Lucidity GC-FID (10.5″ wide each), so together they only take up 22 inches of benchspace or table space.  If you order a Lucidity GAS along with the Lucidity GC-FID there are no additional regulators or gauges you need to order – you’ll have everything you need to run GC analysis – gasses, a column, accessories, a laptop, and all the accessories you need to run it for a year or more.  You only need a power outlet.

Interchangeable Columns Cartridges

Changing columns has never been easier, and you can use any type of conventional GC column.  You can either order any column you want presintalled on a column holder or you can order any column you want and install it yourself onto a column holder, and then the columns can be changed as easily as video game cartridges into a gaming console.  The Lucidity GC-FID also keeps track of what runs are run on what columns and warns users if they attempt to run the wrong column with the wrong method.

User Interface

We have designed control and data viewing software for our Lucidity GC-FID that is the easiest to use GC software available while allowing full control of the system. The Lucidit GC-FID comes with a laptop with the software that connects to the system via an ethernet cable. The software and all future upgrades are free and open source to anyone so our software can be seamlessly integration with any LIMS system and the data can be exported into cvs for external data viewing and analysis. Watch the software demo video to see the software in action.
