We maintain a worldwide network of suppliers in order to always have efficient and innovative products in our program. For many partner companies we have taken over exclusive sales and support obligations for Germany and partly also Austria and Switzerland. With others, we are linked by a cooperation for individual products or product areas. We make one fundamental demand on each of our cooperations: the products must provide a very special benefit for our customers, either on their own or in combination with our services. Here you will find a list of our suppliers and manufacturers. Use the links to visit their homepage.
What began as a distributor for gas chromatographs quickly led to a company that also develops its own instruments and software solutions. The first step in this direction was taken by the Odorization Control Division. With our own hand-held and stationary measuring instruments we are the world market leader in the field of natural gas analysis and odorant control. Through our sales activities in the chromatography sector, we learned about the users’ problems. We use the experience we gained during the development of the ODOR instruments as a basis for finding new solutions for chromaography as well. Especially under the brand name CHRONECT complex automation solutions for the laboratory are created. Decisive for this workstation is above all the software CHRONOS, which was developed by us for a more efficient control of the sample preparation. It also enables simultaneous analysis, as it can be combined with many common evaluation programs. Most new developments are created in close cooperation with renowned contract laboratories or established research institutes.

The current Clarity product line is already the third generation of chromatography stations. It combines years of market knowledge with the flexibility to adopt the latest trends in the chromatography industry. We therefore use Clarity for our chromatography application systems.
ATAS GL International B.V. has changed its name to GL Sciences B.V. The company had already been part of GL Sciences Inc. since 2001, but operated as an independent subsidiary. GL Sciences B.V. is based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Founded in 1990, the company specializes in the development and manufacture of high-performance analytical instruments for gas chromatography systems. This European office provides the opportunity to have local stocks and support in the European market. The main product is the OPTIC multi-injector. The specialisation in injection technology leads to highly developed systems with outstanding performance.

Mettler-Toledo GmbH offers precision instruments worldwide for research and development and quality control. The balances can be integrated into automation processes in the laboratory. They are an integral part of our CHRONECT Quantos System or the CHRONECT Workstation MulitMix. Here, the smallest quantities of powder or liquids are weighed with the highest precision and automatically.
The core competence of the Swedish company Pyrol AB lies in the pyrolysis of complex samples. Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of a material in an inert atmosphere, i.e. without the presence of oxygen. Pyrolysis allows a non-volatile material to be analysed in a gas chromatograph by examining the pyrolysis products, often by mass spectrometry. The samples may be insoluble, dark or inhomogeneous and may contain synthetic and natural polymers, such as vulcanised rubber, resins and composites. Paper, coal, textiles and paints are examples of materials that are successfully analysed by analytical pyrolysis. Different pyrolyzers use different heating methods, which in turn determines which temperature gradients and heating programs are possible. In the pyrola-pyrolysis systems, the sample is placed directly on a platinum thread which is heated by a strong current pulse. This offers maximum flexibility and possibilities that are not available with other systems. The same sample can be pyrolyzed repeatedly with short heat pulses, with GC running between the individual pulses. This facilitates interpretation and provides new insights when analyzing complex samples. The result of many years of research and development are particularly sophisticated systems for pyrolysis.
For our applications we use, among other things, accessories and columns from the company Restek, which was founded in 1985 in the USA. For more than 25 years Restek has been inspiring people in Germany with its high professional competence and quality. With its developments, it strives to be able to offer superior technologies and thus achieve results that are as simple as possible and as reliable as possible.
With Spark Holland we have a long-standing cooperation. The company has become a world-class provider of innovative sample introduction, extraction and separation technology for analytical systems such as HPLC, MS, GC and NMR. Spark proactively collects user feedback and tries to understand the typical problems in the analytical laboratory. This allows the focus on product development towards simplicity and reliability. Since 2018 we are exclusive dealer for the Online SPE Technology and support the sales activities of our partners worldwide. Together with the software CHRONOS we have a complete range of products to continue and expand this business area of Spark Holland as CHRONECT Symbiosis.
