GC Temperature Programming Tutorial
Whether operating under isothermal or temperature programmed gas chromatography (GC) CHROMacademy contains excellent theoretical and practical information surrounding all aspects of GC.
Use our quick guides to pick up some hints and tips on optimizing GC temperature programming and looking after your column and chromatographic instrumentation, or watch our webcast to ensure that you are developing the best GC methods possible.
GC Column Maintenance - Prevention is Better than Cure Using proper procedures for capillary GC column storage and conditioning can have a major impact on column lifetime and the quality of results obtained. This 'Tips and Tricks' instalment covers everything you wanted to know but were never told about proper GC column maintenance.
GC Column installation Video
A properly installed GC column is the most important beginning for your work. This 5 minute Quick Guide video demonstrates how to properly install a GC column, giving you great chromatography, analysis after analysis.
GC Temperature Programming - interactive learning from CHROMacademy
All of the essential information relating to GC Temperature Programming including the relationship between temperature and retention, the advantages of isothermal and temperature programmed GC, and how to implement and use scouting gradients to develop methods. A great module for any GC chromatographer to have at their fingertips.
In order to obtain sensitive, robust, and reproducible gas chromatography (GC) methods, each stage of the chromatographic process needs to be optimized. It is also important to record and report as much detail pertaining to each parameter in order for methods to be reproduced between operators and between laboratories. Using a generic GC method outline, and a generic sample (Table 1), each stage of the GC chromatographic process will be examined resulting in a 'blue print method' that can be used to ensure all parameters are considered, optimized and included in the final method specification. http://www.chromacademy.com/Developing-Better-GC-Methods-a-Blueprint.html
