Anatomy of the HTEC-600
Eicom’s Innovative Cell Design
- Ultrasensitive, 30 fg of dopamine
- Graphite electrode often ready to use for < 30 mins after start-up
- No tools to access the working electrode
- Easy to clean or change the working electrode
The key to the sensitivity is the cell design. Eicom relies on a spring-loaded mechanism that always maintains the proper pressure. This structure allows the detector to quickly stabilize after the cell is opened and closed. Another benefit is that the working electrode can easily be accessed with no tools. In this way, the electrode can easily be wiped clean and reinstalled to ensure maximum sensitivity.
The [HTEC] has been fantastic, it’s run beautifully, and it’s super easy to use.
I like that all of my settings can be controlled right here on the screen, instead of having to make method files within the software and uploading them to the system – that’s just too much work.
