The course concludes with the final module of the GC system; the detector.
We will consider what characteristics we require in a detector and from here will look in more detail at some of the more common types of detectors, including the FID, NPD, ECD and TCD. For each we will discuss the operating principles and some general troubleshooting.
Amy began using chromatography at the start of her academic career with nanoflow-liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, and a variety of other proteomics techniques, for her research into the dynamic proteome. The laboratory also focused on gas chromatographic separations of volatile biological samples.
After using chromatography for 10 years, Amy has now moved into a more training-based role with Crawford Scientific, where she hopes to share the knowledge she gained during her time in the laboratory.
