Too Fast GC — What is Too Fast in GC?

Commercialization of technologies to produce faster temperature ramps in GC have been some of the few GC advances in recent decades. This article will take a look at the utility and ultimate areas of practical application for these technologies.

Preventative GC maintenance and performance verification testing

Is the analytical result you are reporting valid? Maybe the ones from yesterday or last week were, but will the ones from today also be? Will the results from your tray of 70 samples have to be thrown out and the analyses be run again? This month...
