EDITORS' SERIES - Optimizing GC Methods for Speed: More than Just Columns
Event Date: May 23, 2012 at 02:00 PM EDT
Most discussions of “fast GC” focus on developments related to columns: shorter, smaller inside diameters and thinner films. While the column is the “heart” of the method, the other components and steps in the method also have strong effects on analysis speed and time. In this web seminar, a brief overview of column-related strategies for improving GC method speed will be presented, followed by a discussion of implications on the other components of the method. Faster separations on the column impact all facets of the overall method: sampling, sample preparation, injection, detection and data analysis. Thinking about all of these areas enables chromatographers to more carefully consider how changes to the separation itself to increase speed should be approached. It is possible that the most important gains in the speed of the overall method may not come from the separation itself.
