  3.  If needed, drag the boundary lines to resize the integrated peak selection. 

Note: You can modify the name of the peak as desired. This feature is only available if you have a Vernier gas chromatograph connected. 

Supported Instrumentation

The concept of chirality can be difficult for students to visualize. Go Direct® Polarimeter provides a visual representation of this concept by measuring the optical rotation of optical isomers such as sugars, amino acids, and proteins. 

Teach students chromatography with an affordable, portable gas chromatograph that detects polar and nonpolar compounds. With the easy-to-use Go Direct Mini GC, students can separate, analyze, and identify substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample. 

Give your students hands-on experience with electrochemical reactions using this affordable potentiostat, the Go Direct Cyclic Voltammetry System, and disposable screen-printed electrodes. 

About Instrumental Analysis

With our free Vernier Instrumental Analysis™ app, students can collect and analyze data from our Go Direct® Mini GC, Go Direct Polarimeter, and Go Direct Cyclic Voltammetry System using computers, Chromebooks, or other mobile devicesLearn more about Instrumental Analysis »
