Dissolved Species Monitor for Biofuel Research

altHiden Analytical (UK) introduce a new and novel cuvette style interface for the Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet mass spectrometer (MIMS) series. Specifically engineered for the researcher investigating gaseous species generated by algal photo-responsive reactions, the cuvette is engineered to be both flexible and user maintainable and features inert materials throughout.

Concentric transparent acrylic cylinders, sealed by a removable base and cap, form an inner reactor zone with an outer sleeve, the latter to enable thermally stable water to be re-circulated to maintain a uniform reactor temperature. A magnetically driven impeller, located close to the integrated membrane surface, maintains overall media consistency.
