The HTEC-510 is user friendly, provides worry free maintenance, can be easily switched between methods, and most importantly has superb sensitivity.

Ultra-High Sensitivity Electrochemical Detection

The best advantage of using electrochemical (EC) detection is the sensitivity. Eicom will never compromise when improving the electrochemical detector’s sensitivity. The combination of the HTEC-510, HPLC-Electrochemical Detector and the appropriate applications will easily ensure 160 amol sensitivity for dopamine and serotonin, and 5 fmol for acetylcholine.

Turn-Key System

The HTEC-510 is the optimized HPLC-ECD (Electrochemical Detection) system. Analytical applications of electrochemical detection have already been prepared, all you need to do is choose the appropriate method and follow the detailed protocol. Then you can easily get the results.

Easy to Maintain

The simple compact design of the HTEC-510 (HPLC-ECD) allows for easy maintenance. If you have any questions, we will be happy to help you every step of the way.

Superior Customer Support

We assign a trained application specialist to work directly with you from the beginning.  This way we build an efficient working relationship and can help resolve any issues immediately.

Eicom’s Innovative Cell Design

  • Ultrasensitive, 30 fg of dopamine
  • Graphite electrode often ready to use < 30 mins after start-up
  • No tools to access the working electrode
  • Easy to clean or change the working electrode

HPLC-ECD-Electrochemical-Detector-HTEC-500--innovative-cell-design

The key to the sensitivity is the cell design. Eicom relies on a spring loaded mechanism that always maintains the proper pressure. This structure allows the detector to quickly stabilize after the cell is opened and closed. Another benefit is that the working electrode can easily be accessed without any tools. In this way, the electrode can easily be wiped clean and reinstalled to insure maximum sensitivity.
