Chromatotec® group and SEDERE combine their expertise in liquid chromatography

The two French manufacturers, independent family-owned companies with French capital, are willing to develop innovative HPLC solutions for the chromatography industry

Chromatotec®, French specialist in manufacturing turnkey solutions for gas and liquid analysis for 40 years, is proud to announce a collaboration with the company SEDERE, expert in the development, manufacturing and sales of Evaporative Light-Scattering Detectors (ELSD).

The two French manufacturers, export-focused and whose solutions are distributed all around the world, are wishing to collaborate on HPLC systems implementation projects combining MS solutions from Chromatotec® with SEDERE ELSD offer. These applications can be proposed for pharma or agro-food industries for instance, allowing fast and reliable on-field analysis.

SEDERE is the founder of the Low-Temperature Evaporation concept with its range of detectors SEDEX LT-ELSD, recognized as the most complete range of ELSD detectors.

Chromatotec® developed a transportable HPLC system for a big French industrialist. This system is composed of two suitcases : an “order” suitcase with a fixed frame and integrating an impact protection damping system, and an “analytical” suitcase which integrates a GPC analytical system with an auto-sampler, a pumping system, a column and a UV detector. This suitcase of less than 23kg with specific design is perfectly adapted to transport into the luggage bay of planes.

Chromatotec ® also proposes a range of liquid chromatography by HPLC, LC, GPC…, but also a rheometer in transportable case and a DSL system (Dynamic Scale Loop) for the analysis of precipitations and deposition of scale in piping systems like oil or water pipelines.   

These two new systems rely on electronic cards with technology owned by Chromatotec® group (airmotec cards, Chromatotec® software with its own supervision system). These solutions also include the automatic preparation of samples (with viscosity measurement, dilution, cleaning…) that involve the validation of samples before the injection in the chromatograph.

With this collaboration, Chromatotec is pursuing its development strategy on liquid chromatography market. The group indeed concluded at the end of 2021 a partnership with the company Knauer by Mazet, expert in liquid chromatography and official representative in French territory of the Knauer brand, a German manufacturer of scientific instruments for liquid chromatography.

French family-owned company with French capital, SEDERE is the industry leader in the manufacture of Low-Temperature Evaporative Light-Scattering Detectors (LT-ELSD) for HPLC, U-HPLC, HTLC, µ-HPLC, GPC, Preparative HPLC, Flash Chromatography, Counter Current Chromatography and SFC.

Focusing on innovation since more than 30 years, SEDERE is the founder of the Low-Temperature Evaporation concept with its range of detectors SEDEX LT-ELSD, recognized as the most complete ELSD detectors’ range.

Thanks to exclusive technology and an established distribution network, over 95% of SEDERE products are distributed across the world. Passion for innovation and for transforming the chromatography industry has helped the company build solid, long-lasting relationships with research specialists from academia and some of the brightest minds in the world.


About Chromatotec® group

Chromatotec® group specializes in designing, manufacturing and selling online gas chromatographs for gas and liquid, exclusively made in France.

With offices in the USA and China, the group is historically based in Bordeaux area since its creation in 1986.

Chromatotec® is worldwide recognized for its leading-edge technology. Based on chromatography principle, our analyzers are focused on VOCs, sulfur compounds and odor monitoring. We also produce generators for chromatography and online calibration. These technologies allow to track individual compounds at ppt/ppb/ppm concentration levels. Chromatotec® recently developed a new range of portable analytical systems including microVOC / microBTEX analyzers, microF and the 4 ways system ; those 3 systems in suitcase are Battery-powered.
