GC Column installation
“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” - Plato, The Republic
A properly installed GC column is the most important beginning for your work. Follow our step by step guide below, and use the interactive animations, to ensure your column is correctly installed every time, giving you great chromatography, analysis after analysis.
GC columns need to be properly prepared to avoid issues such as high bleed and poor peak shape. Poor installation can lead to reduced efficiency (broad peaks), peak shouldering or splitting, and poor quantitative reproducibility.
