Much has been written about column overload, however, I've seen many instances lately in which overload may not be instantly recognized, or causes problems that may not normally be attributed to overload. Therefore, I wanted to explain how to spot and deal with different types of overload situations.

When developing a separation, some fundamental choices need to be made on how we might achieve the separation we require - primarily the mode of chromatography used and the way in which we intend to control and optimise the retention and separation (selectivity) of analyte components.

Many troubleshooting investigations in chromatography often don?t lead to a single causal factor. Often, the reason for problems or lack of method robustness are related to many small ?contributory factors? and this is particularly true of the problems associated with sample introduction in capillary Gas Chromatography.
