The Buck academic chromatography package includes the "gas-less" 310 Gas Chromatography system with Catalytic Combustion Detector (CCD), and the BLC-10  Fixed Wavelength Isocratic High Performance Liquid Chromatography system. Both instruments come with free Peaksimple software, Column, and class room experiments!

310 Gas Chromatograph with CCD


  • CCD Detector

  • Detects down to 500ppm
  • Gasless operating capability
  • Inexpensive
  • Built-in spare element
  • On-Column Injector
  • Built-in "whisper quiet" Air Compressor
  • 1 channel PeakSimple Data System
  • 1-meter Hayesep-D Column
    ...on the ultra compact 310 chassis

Our 310 Gas-less Educational GC system is ideal for undergraduate chemistry classes where the principles of gas chromatography are demonstrated on the same equipement students will encounter in industry. The Gas-less Educational GC includes a built-in "whisper quiet" air compressor and a CCD detector. The CCD detects combustible (hydrocarbon) molecules, and it operates on air carrier gas from the air compressor.

This GC is perfect for teaching situations where compressed gas cylinders cannot be used due to safety considerations or budgetary limitations. Because it operates on its own infinite supply of room air, the Gas-less GC may be used to peform demonstrations in the classroom, instead of the lab. Most conventional GCs require helium gas. Compared to the ongoing cost of cylinder rental, storage and gas consumption, operation of the Gas-less Educational GC is essentially free, except for the minimal cost of electricity. The Gas-less Educational GC system is equipped with a built-in, single channel PeakSimple data system, which provides powerful yet easy data acquisition, as well as temperature programming for the column oven. Fast cool-down fans automatically cool the column oven at the end of the analysis from 250oC to 50oC in less than five minutes.

Catalytic Combustion Detector for Hydrocarbon selectivity, 100% to 500ppm sensitivity

About as sensitive as a TCD, the Catalytic Combustion Detector has the hydrocarbon selectivity of an FID, plus the ability to operate on air alone. Because the CCD requires no compressed gases like hydrogen or helium, it can be used in Buck's Gasless GCs where our internal "whisper quiet" air compressor supplies the ambient air carrier gas. The CCD detector can also be used as a hydrocarbon monitor in non-chromatographic applications where the CCD senses the total hydrocarbon content of a flowing air stream, or as a hydrogen/hydrocarbon leak detector.

Thermal conductivity detector

Flame Ionization detector



The BLC-10 can operate to system pressures of 3000 PSI. It comes equipped with the standard "PEEK" valve. There is no pressure read out on these units. System pressure is obtained using the Buck-Chrom software. Our fixed wavelength systems are available in either "SS" or "PEEK"" configurations for the same price.

The BLC-10 comes standard with either a PEEK or SS analytical flowcell dependent the users option. A preparative flowcell, semi-preparative flowcells and a microbore flowcell are also available.

The pumping system on all the instruments is a high quality single piston pump with a built in pulse damper. A two-stage injection valve with a 20µl loop is standard.

Pump flow rates are from 0.01ml/min to 10ml/min.  The BLC-10 HPLC has a very sensitive, and stable filter photometer for routine assays at the most common wavelengths. The BLC-10 comes equipped with a 254nm fixed wavelength filter photometer. 280, 365, 420, 505, or 540nm filters are also available. The BLC-10 comes complete with a column, fittings, a pump and injector hardware for instant setup and analyses. The BLC-10 can be changed to a different wavelength with the purchase of a filter & source kit.
