This Waters 2414 Refractive Index (RI) detector is designed for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) applications. It provides sensitivity, stability, and reproducibility for the analysis of components with limited or no UV absorption. The solution-centered design combines with Alliance or Breeze HPLC Systems for RI-based HPLC and GPC applications. It is also compatible with other manufacturers systems such as Agilent 1100 / 1200 via an A/D converter (please enquire).

Warranty Terms & Conditions For Used Equipment

Note: Our warranty terms quoted for this instrument apply to mainland UK customers. For clients outside of this locale, please enquire at point of sale.

It provides solutions for preparative and analytical applications including alcohol, sugar, saccharide, fatty acid, and polymer analysis.

  • Active nebulizer heating and cooling for method optimization and rapid stabilization
  • 60° scatter angle detection to minimise stray light and optics polarisation for long-term optimal sensitivity
  • Optimal energy output for improved bench-to-bench repeatability
  • Precise temperature control in the nebulization, evaporation, and detection stages, maintaining low-dispersion characteristics for improved resolution
  • Independent optimization of sampling rates and filter time constants gives you the ability to tune your detector to your separation goals
  • Nanogram-level detection limits
  • Open-access-ready with accelerated nebulizer stabilization
  • Sampling rates up to 80 points/s
  • Reproducible results and long lamp lifetimes
  • Mass response independent of analyte's optical properties
  • Improved detection for semi-volatile compounds
  • Simple user maintenance with front mounted snap-in nebulizer and lamp
  • Small, stackable footprint, minimizing laboratory space requirements
  • Low dispersion volume for high-speed GPC and narrowbore column chromatography from 0.1 to 10 mL/min
  • Thermally isolated optics bench for temperature stability and performance reproducibility
  • Save solvent and maintain stability with convenient recycle valve
  • Diagnostics and simplified design and control options for easy maintenance and everyday use
  • Circuitry and software in the detector's thermally isolated optics bench provide a sensitive, stable signal response to changes in refractive index independent of ambient temperature changes
  • Auto-zero, auto-purge, and LED-displayed diagnostic programming enable unattended operation and to simplify methods development
