Vernier Go Direct Mini GC can connect via Bluetooth® wireless technology or wired via USB to your device, providing an opportunity for you to choose the solution best for your laboratory. An interface is not required.

Developed with Seacoast Science, Vernier Go Direct Mini GC uses an efficient, software-controlled internal pump system. This design allows the Vernier Go Direct Mini GC to use room air as the carrier gas so there is no need to purchase an external carrier gas tank or maintain a gas filtration system.

Easily incorporate gas chromatography into your curriculum using Vernier's e-book Chromatography Experiments with the Go Direct Mini GC™ available for free with your purchase. Essential instructor information and word-processing files of student instructions for each of these experiments will be provided upon purchase:
• Using Gas Chromatography: Identifying an Unknown Compound
• Gas Chromatography Basics: Column Temperature and Loading
• Dehydration of 2-methylcyclohexanol
• Detection of Chemical Isomers with Gas Chromatography
• Fischer Esterification: Preparation of Banana Oil

You can also use this mini gas chromatograph to identify unknown compounds, monitor chemical reactions and measure products from a distillation.
