Small and modular. Robust and intelligent. The new range of Runge Mikron detectors recently introduced by Biotech AB, unites many attractive features in a tiny package. Different modules can be combined to measure in a variety of fluidic systems, including liquid chromatography.
Thanks to several available LED-based fixed- wavelength light sources with a life-time of more than 5000 hours, power consumption below 2.5 watts, and start-up within seconds, the Runge Mikron detectors are ideal for incorporation into portable field instruments and online monitoring devices. This also allows the detectors to be operated in refrigerated laboratory environments down to 4 °C (39 °F), without virtually any heat production. Flexibility in sampling frequencies, detector cell sizes, port connections and choice of wetted materials, make the Runge Mikron detectors suitable for many flow rate conditions and eluent compositions.
The Runge Mikron detectors are easy to connect as they communicate through, and draw power from, one single USB-C port. Drivers are provided for several chromatography software, alternatively, an open protocol can be used for customised implementation. The detectors conform to international standards and are CE marked.
