A gas chromatograph is used for composition analysis of gasoline and its additives in order to improve fuels' performance. In addition to excellent performance, Shimadzu's GC systems improve productivity. For example, the Nexis GC-2030 system combines three standards into one to save analytical instrument and labor costs.
