Universal Methanizer System for GC FID

One of the biggest GC advances in the last 5 years. This systems allows the capability to perform in a simpler much faster way. It has a catalytic microreactor that enhances new and existing gas chromatographs (GCs) with flame ionization detectors (FIDs) by converting all organic compounds to methane molecules prior to their detection by the FID. In doing so, the system reduces the need to perform time-consuming calibrations by creating a uniform detector response for truly universal carbon detection.


  • Better Data Quality
  • Increased Throughput
  • More Economical
  • Can use the same GC and software, but will produce better data
  • Reduce the need for traditional calibrations, saving time, money & waste
  • Quantify compounds with unavailable commercial standards
  • Increase sensitivity for select compounds (CO, CO2,formic acid, etc)
  • It's easy to use and is a universal detector for use on any manufacturer GC system with FIDs
  • Converts all organic molecules to methane
  • No nickel catalyst, non-toxic 
  • Resistant to traditional methanizer poisons (sulfur compounds)
  • Multiple mounting locations on the GC
  • For use with split applications for GC/MS
