With total control over design and manufacturing Bruker ensure the quality and technological excellence of its products is complimented and combined with features that deliver the  true benefits of productivity.

The new SCION 436-GC and SCION 456-GC set new standards for data acquisition speed at >600Hz per channel for rapid separations and greater analysis throughput. This key advance increases productivity and provides a platform that will inspire further advancement of GC separation technology. Dr. Frank Laukien, President and CEO of Bruker Corporation commented, "The launch of the new generation SCION 436 and 456 Gas Chromatographs reaffirms our commitment to provide innovative new products to the gas chromatography market. Continuing from the incredibly successful SCION TQ and SQ products, the new SCION GC's set the stage for even more innovations from Bruker in this key market segment."

The SCION 436-GC is a compact instrument supporting two injectors and two detectors, including mass spectrometer - the perfect choice when bench space is at a premium. SCION 456-GC provides industry-leading flexibility by supporting three injectors and four detectors, including the mass spectrometer. Meredith Conoley, Director of GC Marketing added, "The SCION 456-GC is the industry's first system to be able to simultaneously acquire data from four detectors, including a mass spectrometer, providing our users with a rapid time-to-benefit advantage."
