Vernier Gas Chromatograph

The Vernier Gas Chromatograph, or “Mini GC,” is an instrument for separating, analyzing, and identifying substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample.

It has all of the key components of a traditional gas chromatograph, including an injection port, temperature and pressure controls, a thin capillary column through which different substances pass at different rates depending on various chemical and physical properties, and a sensor for detecting the arrival of compounds.

The Mini GC also has the added benefit of a new patented MEMS chip sensor which allows for room air to be used as a carrier gas. Its compact size makes it an ideal solution for students to learn the principles of gas chromatography.

Vernier Summer Fitness Challenge

We have just kicked off our annual summer fitness challenge at Vernier! The goal of the eight-week challenge is to inspire everyone at Vernier to exercise at least 30 minutes for five days of the week.

This year’s theme is “Challenge for Causes.” Vernier has dedicated the challenge to three local charities: Oregon Food Bank, Start Making a Reader Today (SMART), and Sisters of the Road. For every hour an employee exercises, Vernier will donate sixty cents to the cause the employee has chosen.

Vernier employees are excited to exercise this summer for the benefit of their own health and to also contribute to our local community’s needs.
