Supporting almost every industry in South Africa from petroleum to what is on your plate
Gas chromatography (GC) was first used in 1952 and is now one of the most widely used techniques in analytical chemistry. The use of relatively standardised approaches of separation, which involves optimising only temperature and gas, makes the technique user friendly. The only attribute a molecule requires is that it can be volatilised and enter the gas phase. Therefore, GC is currently used in almost every conceivable industry, from production to food safety. As this analysis is used in such a broad scope of applications, continuous performance monitoring is one of the most important aspects of GC analysis. The aim of this workshop is to provide analyst with tools to improve the separation, identification, and quantification of compounds of interest. While taking a critical look at instrumental quality control criteria.
