Analytical laboratories are constantly challenged to balance high productivity with operational efficiency. And with the growing popularity of hybrid operating models since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, gas chromatography (GC) operators are increasingly looking to remotely access their GCs – both from different parts of the lab and from completely different locations.
The GC 2400 platform from PerkinElmer helps you make faster decisions from anywhere, whether in or out of the lab. The innovative technology allows access to real-time chromatographic information on the go, allowing the user to effectively monitor sample status with a movable, intuitively designed touch screen.
In addition, SimplicityChrom™ Chromatography Data System (CDS) software maximizes GC performance and increases automation of laboratory operations by allowing every step in the GC workflow to be integrated together, from instrument control to data processing.
Reduced downtime and increased productivity
PerkinElmer’s GC 2400 platform is designed to drive productivity by combining intelligent connectivity, simplified operations and sustainable solutions. The platform facilitates comprehensive and automated workflows and remote connectivity functionality supported by live system status, while SimplicityChrom CDS software is designed to accelerate results at any level of expertise.

The GC 2400 platform offers intelligent sampling capabilities to optimize operations, as well as status notifications and easy-to-maintain hardware. Tasks are managed by software and workflows are automated and comprehensive so users can focus on results.
In addition, the platform features intelligent gas management to reduce gas consumption and uses hydrogen as a carrier gas with a built-in sensor to improve laboratory and operator safety. Its flexible, intelligent sampling capabilities can maintain resilience and are designed to grow in sync with your lab’s needs.
Streamlined, efficient gas chromatography through an integrated system
The GC 2400 platform consists of four hardware parts and two software applications that come together to provide complete, efficient gas chromatography workflow solutions. These are PerkinElmer’s AS 2400™ Liquid Sampler, MS 2400™ SQ Detector, GC 2400 System and HS 2400™ Headspace Sampler, as well as Simplicity Vision™ App and SimplicityChrom CDS software.
PerkinElmer’s AS 2400 Liquid Sampler features plug-and-play towers that can be easily transferred between analytical channels or GCs without the need for manual reconfiguration. This significantly reduces downtime and increases overall laboratory productivity and return on investment. The sampler features both single and dual tower configuration options and has multiple tray capacities.
The MS 2400 SQ detector offers precise detections in full scan mass spectra, selected ion complete ion (SIFI) and selected ion monitoring (SIM) modes. The single-quadrant system provides laboratories with the flexibility needed to maximize sample throughput and operate smoothly and efficiently. Its exclusive Marathon™ Filament technology features exceptional durability and extended life, while SMARTsource™ technology provides tool-free source access, cleaning and maintenance, giving your lab greater instrument uptime and sample throughput.
The GC 2400 system from PerkinElmer aims to offer a new GC monitoring experience by providing important information from the laboratory and beyond at a glance. Using our SimplicityChrom CDS software and Asset Genius™ solution allows him to automate the collection, visualization and reporting of key performance data for insight into your most critical lab assets.
Our HS 2400 Headspace Sampler introduces samples into the column without the use of a gas syringe or valve and loop through the use of unique balanced pressure sampling technology. This minimizes many sources of variability and contamination, which improves sample accuracy and reproducibility by avoiding dead volumes, carryover, and peak distortion.
On the software side, Simplicity Vision allows for real-time status updates and monitoring of every step of the GC workflow, as well as instrument setup and manual operations prior to release. The program can be used as a single or multi-tool interface to allow operators to work remotely and make decisions on the fly. SimplicityChrom CDS software connects and integrates all steps of the GC workflow in an intuitive and flexible way; the program also maintains compliance with 21 CFR part 11.
Complete, integrated gas chromatography workflows
The GC 2400 platform is ideal for a range of analytical sectors and applications, from industrial and environmental analysis to food and pharmaceutical quality and safety testing. The platform offers connectivity and workflow integration for all points of the GC process.
PerkinElmer’s OneSource Laboratory Services portfolio offers complete workflow solutions for food, environmental, industrial and pharmaceutical analysis. These include services to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, support non-core but critical laboratory activities, ensure that your laboratory’s IT system is working properly and assistance in case of laboratory relocation.
To provide timely and accurate residual solvent analysis, the GC 2400 platform is part of an analytical workflow that relies critically on efficiency. SimplicityChrom CDS software integrates the analytics workflow to offer an intuitive user experience while meeting compliance and traceability requirements.
Selection and preparation of the ideal consumables
The innovative design and intelligent features of the GC 2400 platform are designed to make it easier for cutting-edge laboratories to access, operate and monitor their gas chromatographic separations, which are made of robust, reliable and reproducible columns, which are the heart of any GC instrument.
PerkinElmer can help you select the best column to separate and accurately quantify your sample, and offer stationary phases and column sizes to meet your unique analytical needs. We’ve invested in in-house column manufacturing capabilities to offer a new level of reliability and performance – every new GC 2400 comes with a PerkinElmer-manufactured column to ensure your instrument and analysis are accurate from the start.
In addition, we provide a full range of vital consumables to support your analytical workflow, with each consumable carefully selected and designed to deliver the best results.
