Solvent Delivery Modules

LC1150 HPLC Pump

Solvent Delivery Module LC 1150

The LC1150 is a high performance solvent delivery system with quaternary gradient and solvent blending capability. It features a sophisticated spindle driven variable stroke piston arrangement providing exceptional solvent delivery performance, operational reliability and optimal flow delivery. The advanced on-board computing automatically compensates for solvent compressibility and provides excellent flow with minimal pulsation and precision independent of system pressure.

It can be used as a stand-alone pump with full control and on-board diagnostics from a built-in keypad, or remotely controlled by a host computer in a fully automated system.

The LC1150 uses dual microprocessor control to match high speed proportioning with piston stroke volume, ensuring accurate and precise gradient formation with extended analytical flow range. The dual-serial piston chamber flow path facilitates efficient in-pump solvent mixing with minimal delay volume. This eliminates the necessity of a mixer and delivers sharp gradient formation, essential for high precision assay and improved method ruggedness.

LC1120 HPLC Pump

Solvent Delivery Module LC1120

The LC1120 HPLC pump offers high performance solvent delivery for isocratic applications. It uses a modular stand-alone stackable compact design and can be readily integrated into any existing HPLC setup. The solvent-proof enhanced keyboard and back-lit LCD display ensure rapid instrument start-up and operation, with real-time display of operating conditions.

Comprehensive diagnostics and system log facilitates preventative maintenance scheduling. With built-in computer interface and optional oven control, the LC1120 can also be easily configured with other GBC HPLC modules, providing a complete HPLC system with single computer interface control.

The LC1120 can be upgraded to quaternary operation, offering a cost effective entry level to a future-proof HPLC system.

For the technically minded, the LC1120 uses a self-priming dual serial piston chamber configuration with built-in pulse damper and purge valve for maximum instrument reliability and assay sensitivity. The self-centering floating piston design reduces seal wear and simplifies seal changeover, while the double ball check valve cartridge design improves valve switching efficiency with extended flow performance and reliability.

LC1650 Autosampler


The LC1650 Automated Chromatography Sample Introduction System (ACSIS) is a high performance autosampler with extended sample throughput and fast robotic capability. It features some of the most advanced developments in liquid sample handling design for exceptional injection performance and operational reliability. A sapphire plunger self priming syringe in conjunction with a flow-through needle path eliminates dead volume ensuring excellent precision and linearity resulting in accurate and reliable assay results.

An unprecedented sample capacity of 160 standard (2 or 4 mL) vials is accessed by a x,y,z, robotic sample probe to perform sample dilution, internal standard addition, solvent extraction and pre-column derivatization with high precision as integral parts of the LC1650's sample processing routines. A small footprint (34 cm of bench space) and an open view front access design facilitates fast sample loading and easy serviceability.

The LC1650's advanced processing capabilities can be utilised as a stand-alone module through built-in keypad and backlit LCD display, or integrated into a complete HPLC system with single computer control. Built-in processing templates can be used for unattended batch analysis and pre-column sample preparation. A priority function enables urgent samples to interrupt batch mode analysis. The modular stand-alone format allows easy integration into any existing HPLC system, or combined with other GBC modules to provide a complete HPLC system with single computer control.
