FireflySci responds to demand for cells in high-end machines

FireflySci has expanded its Agilent flow cell line products for high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) machines.

The firm said in response to the growing demand for cells that work in Cary/Varian machines, it has added an additional z-dimension option of 20mm to the product line. 

It added while the majority of commercial spectrophotometers and fluorometers use the z-dimension of 8.5 or 15mm, machines such as the Cary 5000 and the 6000i models are higher end and use the z-dimension of 20mm.

Z-dimension or beam height is the height of the spectrophotometer’s light beam from the bottom of the cuvette holder.

On its Type 601 offerings, the company has added the 20mm z-dimension option for the 1, 2, 5 and 10mm selections and for the Type 605, the 0.1, 0.2, 1 and 2mm lightpaths are available in 20mm z-dimension. The Type 606 now features a 20mm height for the 5 and 10mm lightpath option.

Most of the cells are made with oval-shaped flow chambers to reduce hard angles where debris can be trapped.

Each FireflySci Agilent flow cell is designed with a dome-shaped cavity to reduce bubble formation. Bubbles can create interference in measurements and disrupt any continuous ones and the cells are produced to withstand pressures of 5 bars.

 Alongside its Agilent flow cell line, FireflySci offers colorimeter cells, dye laser cells, UHV cuvettes, HPLC flow cells and others.
