UMass Biogeochem now has a GERSTEL Preparative Fraction Collector!

Our newest instrument, a GERSTEL Preparative Fraction Collector (PFC) coupled to an Agilent 7890A GC-FID is now installed and running! The The  GERSTEL PFC collects compounds after separation by GC. We plan to use this instrument to isolate compounds such as plant leaf waxes for compound-specific radiocarbon dating.
