Everything You Should Know About Headspace GC Tutorial
Headspace sampling is excellent for the qualitative or quantitative analysis of volatile species in samples that can be efficiently partitioned into the headspace gas volume from either a liquid or solid matrix. It is also a good technique for the analysis of samples where the entire sample should not be injected into the GC instrument (i.e. dirty samples).
Headspace sampling is also particularly amenable to the analysis of trace levels of analytes.
Watch the webcast and delve into our CHROMacademy material to further your knowledge of headspace sampling.
Headspace Sampling eLearning A comprehensive guide to allow you to set up, use, and optimize headspace sampling. The theory of headspace sampling is detailed using CHROMacademy’s interactive animations to aid understanding. Take a look inside each stage (pressurization, loop fill/vent, injection) of a headspace injection, while we discuss which parameters must be optimized for successful headspace sampling. Finally, in order to achieve reliable results headspace extractions must be correctly calibrated, this can be problematic, however, there are details contained within this module which describe different calibration procedures to suit all samples.
