Flame Ionization Detector
The flame ionization detector (FID) is the most widely used detector for gas chromatography because of its reliability, versatility, and ease of use. It responds to virtually any organic compound while generating little or no signal for common carrier gases.
The auto-ranging FID used on Agilent Intuvo 9000, 8890, 8860, and 7890 GC systems offers the ability to detect and quantitate from percent levels to parts per billion (ppb) in a single injection. Rapid data acquisition rates easily accommodate fast GC.
