Siegwerk, one of the leading ink manufacturers for flexible packaging, ensures the safety of its products starting with a comprehensive raw material introduction process supplemented by incoming quality control (IQC). Incoming solvents are checked using gas chromatography (GC) to avoid contamination of inks and varnishes by impurities or other non-intentionally added substances (NIAS). Some NIAS could be non-carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic (CMR) substances which give an off-flavor or disturb the printing process.

The team at Siegwerk switched from conventional GC oven systems to the Intuvo 9000 GC. In this webinar Dr Dieter Franke describes how this approach increased speed by >50% for universal methods, and how he expects it to reduce analysis time from 25 mins to 10 mins with a robust analytical experimental model and innovative gas chromatography. 

By viewing this presentation you will learn...

  • how to ensure the safety of products starting with a comprehensive raw material introduction process supplemented by IQC
  • how direct column heating in gas chromatography reduced sample run times
  • the advantages of 'Guard Chip Technology' – an end to column trimming saves crucial time
  • how to achieve fast, confident column changes with ferrule-free 'click-and-run' connections in Intuvo 9000 GC
  • how Intuvo 9000 GC drives better business outcomes with its new compact design with the same robust performance.
