Title: Device in a gas flow cell and a method of analyzing chemical substances by means of the gas flow cell

Abstract: The present invention relates to a device in gas flow cells for the analysis of chemical substances by spectrophotometry. The gas flow cell has two longitudinal ducts, which are connected by a connection so that a first flow is permitted though the ducts and the connection. The first duct in the direction of flow has a separation column and the second duct is a light guide. The invention is characterized in that in the connection there is a coupling, which is connected with the outlet from an external separation unit. The connection is designed to receive a second flow comprising the substances separated in the external separation unit together with a first carrier gas, so that the second flow is added to the first flow in the connection. The device is designed to function in either of two operating positions, where in the first position the device functions in the conventional manner and where in the second position the first flow comprises the second carrier gas and the second flow is connected up. The invention also relates to a method of analyzing chemical substances.
