Portable Gas Chromatograph

Chromatography to Go: Power, Performance, and Rugged Reliability

The most technologically advanced portable GC in the world. Rechargeable and field-replaceable batteries allow up to eight hours of field use, or the option to operate off external AC or DC sources. Voyager's powerful analytical engine is composed of a built-in three-column configuration with an isothermal oven for fast GC analysis for up to 40 factory-programmed EPA listed VOCs.


With a miniaturized PID/ECD dual detection system, it's easy to see why the Photovac Voyager is truly unique.

Chromatograms and/or tabular results are easily viewed in the field using the built-in backlit LCD screen. Voyager's data logging stores a full day of field results, which can conveniently be uploaded to a PC in the field or office.


Voyager is compact, lightweight (15 lbs/6.8 kg).  Every Voyager is delivered with your choice of one or more application assays. Each assay automates the setup of the instrument operation conditions. With Voyager, running an assay and collecting data is as simple as press and go.
