Technology Forum

Technology Forum: Environmental Analysis
From sample prep to low detection levels to automation, environmental analysis provides unique challenges for analytical chemists. Participants in this Technology Forum are Kory Kelly of Phenomenex (Torrance, California), and LCGC Editorial Advisory Board member Pat Sandra of the Research Institute of Chromatography (Kortrijk, Belgium).
Replace Helium with Carrier Gas, Fuel Gas, and Zero Air from one system
Eliminate the expense and inconvenience of high pressure Helium, Hydrogen, and Zero Air Cylinders. The Paker Balston GCGS Gas Station will produce Carrier Gas, Fuel Gas, and Zero Air from one system. The system will produce UHP zero air from house compressed air (<0.05 ppm THC) and 99.99999+% pure hydrogen. Ideal for 1 3 FIDs and 1 3 capillary columns. Read more

Toxic Mushrooms
A team of scientists has solved a series of mysterious deaths in southwestern China’s Yunnan province.
Better Chromatographic Results with Autosampler Vials
RSA™ glass vials have solved many difficult problems for chromatographers and most are happy to shout about it. These vials do not have silanols or contain metals and common contaminants found on the surface of all other borosilicate glass vials. Free yourself from adsorption of basic compounds, avoid hysteresis and pH changes for more reliable data. RSA glass vials are economical and reliable. All batches are tested by LCMS. Read more.
Environmentally Friendly Eggs
Organophosphate flame retardants (OPFRs) are used in a variety of commercial products worldwide, however, little is known about their environmental and health impacts. A team based in Canada has developed a method for examining their impact by analyzing 13 herring gull eggs from the Channel-Shelter Island colony at Lake Huron.
