While most chromatographers would agree that development of effective, short, and stable chromatographic methods requires elements of personal intuition and systematic screening, some might argue that it is in fact more art than science.

When Peak Scientific started manufacturing gas generators in 1997, we knew that there was a huge potential for our gas generation products, which include nitrogen generators for LC–MS as well as hydrogen, ultra high purity nitrogen, and zero air generators for GCs. 10 years later, we are still amazed by the rapid growth of the market not only for gas generator products but also for those instruments that require gas to analyze samples, such as LC–MS and GC.

I was first acquainted with LCGC in the mid 1980s. Known then as just LC Magazine, it appealed to any graduate student working in the field of chromatography because it was delivered each month free of charge.

Millipore Corporation is a leader in sample preparation technology, including filtration, chromatographic preparation, and ultrapure water for chemical and biochemical analysis. Although scientists have placed emphasis on the results of analysis, there has been a recent shift of focus to include the preparation stage. Research done through chromatography, mass spectrometry, elemental spectrometry, microscopy, and particle analysis are reliant on sample quality.

I firmly believe that the most significant development in mass spectrometry in this decade - or perhaps even the history of mass spectrometry - will turn out to be the ability to measure samples directly in open air under ambient conditions. In my experience of using mass spectrometry for the past thirty-plus years, the biggest limitation has always been the need to insert samples into a high-vacuum chamber, or to dissolve the samples and inject them or deposit them onto a prepared surface. The ability to analyze samples immediately by using open-air analysis without these restrictions has been very liberating, and it has made it possible to analyze a much wider variety of materials. I no longer hesitate to try an analysis because I am not sure about extraction, solubility, volatility, likelihood of contaminating the mass spectrometer, or whether the sample will go through a GC or LC column.

Born from the garages of entrepreneurs, the analytical instrumentation industry's first 25 years were marked by invention and the establishment of core technologies. Invention continues, but the past 25 years are better characterized as a time of perfecting and reengineering, pushing limits, and consolidation - of the technologies and the industry. The specifications arms race continues as the players try to stay on technology's leading edge, but new technology introductions have been rare. Instead, the industry debuts faster, smaller, and more economical products that are customer-focused and user friendly. Hybridization is becoming common. An industry once driven by inward facing R&D departments is now driven by market demands.

Metrohm has established itself in the competitive analytical instruments sector and has continually extended its position. We are the market leader in the fields of titration and voltammetry, in the ion chromatography sector we are a very strong number two. The company is owned by the Metrohm foundation, whose purpose is to keep the company independent, to provide employment to local people and to support causes of public interest in our area.

In 1983, the brainchild of Ed Aster, President of Aster Publishing, and Tom Hager, an editor, a publication called LC-Liquid Chromatography and HPLC Magazine was christened.
