The authors look at how achieving both greater throughput and increasing informational content is a driving force in small-molecule analysis. They describe how analysts should address mechanical increases in productivity, software implementation flow and data management, and effective sample preparation to improve efficiency and reduce frustration.

This article is an adaptation of one written in the German publication Nachrichten aus der Chemie and discusses how gas chromatography instrumentation, columns and techniques have improved over the past 10–15 years, making even relatively new equipment obsolete for many applications. In particular, the authors look at how older equipment is unsuitable for fast GC, better trace analysis and comprehensive multidimensional GC.
