Multimode Inlet

Multimode Inlet

The Multimode Inlet (MMI) increases analytical capability, allowing the ability to inject large volumes of sample and split away the solvent, dramatically increasing the sensitivity. Inject cool-temperature thermally labile compounds and then ramp temperatures quickly to transfer to the column.

The injection technique that is used for a method can be tailored to the compounds. Using the MMI the GC can meet current analytical needs and provides flexibility to meet future regulatory requirements.
