It brings gas analysis out of the dark ages.

  • Finally, a universal detector that's sensitive, selective, and headache-free.
  • 1st Universal detector for identification and quantification.
  • It's easy to use.
    We repeat: Easy. To. Use.
  • Uniquely identifies compounds in complex mixtures, including co-eluting isomers.
The VGA-101 GC-VUV Detector

How does it work?
Easy. It's all about absorption spectroscopy.

  • Very fast sampling. (Up to 100Hz)
  • Excellent temporal resolution.
  • No ionization means minimal sample degradation.
  • Kiss calibration hassles goodbye, with the unique ability to model and accurately predict detector response.
  • Resolve co-eluting analytes & quit worrying about trying to achieve baseline resolved chromatography.

The vacuum ultraviolet spectrum opens up a wide spectrum of advantages. Most compounds have little or no absorption in the UV-VIS, while everything absorbs strongly in the VUV.

So who benefits from VUV Analytics technology?

Anyone who relies on gas chromatography and is fed up with poor quantification, ambiguous compound identification results, regular system maintenance and burdensome calibrations. This includes, but is not limited to, the good folks who work in:

The words you thought you'd never hear.
Powerful spectroscopy with functional simplicity.

Continuously and rapidly acquires full spectroscopic absorption data from ~120nm to 430nm.


Integrates data across the entire ~120nm to 430nm range and presents it as a single chromatographic response.



Data can be integrated across specific regions of interest using spectral filters, which improve analyte sensitivity by reducing the impact of the background matrix components.

Strong and unique absorption cross-sections of gas molecules in the VUV spectrum.


Easily integrates onto almost any gas chromatography instrument. Compatible with all common carrier gases.


Minimal facility requirements, limited moving parts,easy maintenance, and no vacuum pumps results in a very low cost of ownership.
