Intuvo Guard Chip

Intuvo Guard Chips from Agilent

The Agilent Intuvo Guard Chip harnesses the protective power of a traditional retention gap within an easy-to-install, disposable, microfluidic chip. It traps sample residue by providing almost one meter of inert flow path between the liner and the column. With rapid, regular replacement, sample contamination never reaches the head of the Intuvo GC column, eliminating the need for column trimming.

Intuvo Guard Chips are designed as a disposable consumable. To prolong the lifetime of your Intuvo GC column, the Guard Chip should be replaced at about the same frequency as you would typically trim your conventional analytical column, or whenever chromatographic performance begins to decline.

For some ultra-clean applications where a Guard Chip may not be needed, the Jumper Chip provides a short, direct flow path. For example, customers whose applications do not require column trimming may be able to use Jumper Chips. Generally, the majority of customer applications will utilize Guard Chips rather than Jumper Chips to ensure column longevity.

Guard Chip

  • Saves time and improves sample throughput
  • No more column trimming
  • Enables retention time reproducibility, and easy, consistent installation
  • Excellent for use with GC-MS since there’s no need to vent the MS when replacing the guard chip
  • Not reusable, replace regularly for best results

Jumper Chip

  • Best suited for ultra-clean applications, especially those using headspace or purge and trap sample introduction techniques
  • Direct path from inlet to column
