The increasing need for even more sensitive analyses of harmful substances brings new pressure on gas chromatography (GC) analytical methods.

The increasing need for even more sensitive analyses of harmful substances brings new pressure on gas chromatography (GC) analytical methods. Flow path inertness is the next frontier in the continuous improvement of GC analyses. The ongoing development of ultra-inert inlets, columns and detectors - alongside test mixes and procedures that assure a highly inert flow path - is improving the ability to analyse difficult, active compounds present in trace amounts.
