The GL6 analyser is used in Industrial, Commercial & Biotechnology analyses for the rapid and precise analysis of multiple analytes of industrial and biotechnological importance.

The analyser can be specified to include five of the following single point calibration assays according to your areas of interest: Ethanol, Glucose, Glycerol, Lactate, Methanol, Sucrose or Lactose.

Application Areas

Measurement of key analytes in the following applications:

  • Food & beverages
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Biotechnology
  • Industrial process control


After calibration with a standard of the selected analyte, the single injection of sample is all that is needed to obtain a result and prepare the analyser for the next analysis.

Sample injection via an accurate positive displacement pipette triggers the complete analytical cycle and a hard-copy result is printed within 25 seconds.
