The new TD-30 series of thermal desorption systems consists of pretreatment, sample introduction units that are available for use with Shimadzu’s GCMS product line. With large sample capacities, an efficient workflow, and a robust design, they are ideally suited for the analysis of trace components in such industries as environmental, chemical, food, and automotive. The TD-30 is equipped with a 60-sample carousel; the TD-30R has the ability to hold 120 samples. Both models are equipped with a retrapping function that allows split samples desorbed from the tube and loaded into the GCMS to be trapped again for potential remeasurement. The thermal desorption units have been designed for ease of use and simplified maintenance.
