1260 Infinity II Multi-Detector GPC/SEC System

Accurate, efficient, and detailed polymer characterization
With the 1260 Infinity II Multi-Detector GPC/SEC System you can select from any combination of detection by refractive index, light scattering, and viscometry. The system delivers accurate, absolute molecular weights and sizes, and can be used to analyze a wide range of polymers, regardless of molecular weight range or solvent. Each detector has independent temperature control to ensure that high levels of precision and reproducibility can easily be achieved from one day to the next.

Research Facility

Verschuren Centre Laboratory
Cape Breton University
Nova Scotia (NS)

The Verschuren Centre for Sustainability in Energy and the Environment at Cape Breton University is a service provider for commercially focused Clean Tech Solutions. Furthermore, it is a hub for collaborative research, development and demonstration. The Centre was established in 2009 to find innovative and sustainable solutions to energy and environmental issues and is uniquely positioned to address these challenges. Located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, home to world-class natural resources and Canada’s most progressive climate change laws, the Centre is positioned to not only undertake directly relevant research, but to lead its application and governance. Verschuren Centre faculty, staff and students draw inspiration from a collaborative approach to research, a diversely international campus population, the Island’s remarkable ecosystems, and the Centre’s design: one of the most sustainable university laboratories in Canada.
