About Us

The Mission

Wasson Building

Gas chromatographs are powerful, technologically complex analytical tools. With so many options available, many find it difficult to customize an instrument to perform a particular analysis. For those who don’t specialize in GC customization, it can be a time-consuming and costly process where the end result may not provide optimized, consistent analysis.

Wasson-ECE specializes in configuring and modifying new or existing Agilent Technologies gas chromatographs. Our systems are guaranteed, turn-key analytical solutions, with the installation, warranty and service plan on us. Contact us for your custom GC analysis needs and find out what a difference 25 years of experience can make.


The Process

The system ordering process begins with a conversation between the customer and one of our specialized marketing chemists. The customer describes analysis objectives and details of the sample composition such as analyte concentration ranges, sample phase, sample temperature, desired throughput, and any special project needs.

With this information, we begin to design and build your custom instrument. Our design team includes chemists, chemical engineers, electronic engineers, mechanical engineers, software engineers, and fabrication engineers. Together, we design a system that may add extra ovens, valves, plumbing, flow control, columns, electronics, software, and other specialized components to your complete GC system. We’re not simply system integrators. We can design and build exactly what your project needs.

Once the instrument has been built, we develop and test your complete analytical method. Our chemists run relevant samples through the GC system and provide you with example chromatograms for approval prior to shipment. Our insistence on customer approval assures customers that the system is performing to specification as guaranteed. Customers are also welcome to visit our Fort Collins, Colorado facility for factory acceptance testing prior to shipment at no additional charge.

When the customer is completely satisfied with the system, a Wasson-ECE field engineer travels to the customer’s site to install the system in the laboratory and provide extensive training. Our field engineers run customer samples and calibrate the instrument onsite. Once installed, the gas chromatograph is immediately ready to begin analysis.

After installation, and throughout the life of the chromatograph, our support chemists are ready to help, either onsite or by telephone. We can assist with application details, questions, training, calibration, maintenance, and on-site service and repair. The quality and responsiveness of our support team is second-to-none in the industry. While other companies delay you with voice mail or take a "hardware only" approach to service, we understand your needs and provide you with the prompt, personal help you deserve.
