What GC Operators Need to Know: Part 2: Everything Needed to Understand Detectors, Methods and Troubleshooting

Part II of our definitive guide to what all GC operators need to know will examine how to select the correct detector for your application as well as which parameters can and should be optimized. We will discuss what an optimum GC method looks like and how to implement a written method - including what choices need to be made in relation to the carrier gas, setting up the inlet etc. If your lab requires higher throughput then our insights into speeding up GC will be invaluable. Finally, even the best developed method and most well maintained GC instrument can develop problems; therefore, we will finish this webcast by letting you into a few secrets on how the experts troubleshoot GC problems.

GC Troubleshooting Masterclass

Dr. John Hinshaw and Tony Taylor demonstrate practical GC separation troubleshooting. Using real world chromatograms submitted by CHROMacademy members from many different application areas, they illustrate how to recognize problems and explain further tests and investigations necessary to properly qualify the issue. They then offer advice on how the problem may be resolved to help you gain valuable insight into recognizing, characterizing and fixing problems in GC to improve your data quality and reduce instrument downtime..

Developing Better GC Methods - A Blueprint

This month we explore what constitutes the optimum GC method. We will examine the many instrument parameter settings, as well as the chemistry and temperature program considerations which can and should be optimized for every analysis. This webcast analyzes what the ideal method specification might look like and highlights the important decisions which lead to highly stable and sensitive GC methods. The webcast will draw up a blueprint for a highly useful and practically relevant optimum GC method.
