Adopting Dynamic and Lean Gas Chromatography Operations that Do More with Less
Register Free >>
The typical gas chromatography laboratory exhibits a static situation where a set number of GC or GC/MS systems with dedicated configurations run specific applications covering the necessary sample throughput. The workload is rarely optimized, as some systems feature injection or detection solutions that are seldom used, while others face demanding 24/7 usage. When quantitation or identification challenges arise or current instrumentation is no longer supported, users generally acquire new instruments to meet new needs. This increases the overall capital investment required, as well as the operational budget costs encountered, such as expanded gas supplies, energy consumption, and consumable usage, even when the new GC is not in use.
A refreshing approach to GC instrument design and laboratory management enables users to dynamically and efficiently adjust resources to meet new and existing demands with fewer systems. In this web seminar, we will illustrate some innovative ways to reduce the total number of GC systems used to accomplish the same level of productivity, share the existing components for maximum efficiency, and quickly redistribute application workload as needed — all with minimal capital investment. We will also show how instrument downtime for maintenance activities, whether planned or unplanned, can basically be reduced to zero. Join us for this discussion to evolve your lab into a dynamic and lean operation with fewer systems and lower operating costs.
