The LCGC Blog: Column Abuse!
Answers to frequently asked questions about column usage and the truth about common myths related to the abuse and reconditioning of HPLC columns.
Convert to Hydrogen as a Carrier Gas
The global shortage of helium has caused prices to increase significantly. Many GC users are considering switching to hydrogen as a carrier gas. Hydrogen provides many advantages over helium including, higher resolution, shorter run times, longer column life, and cost savings. Many instrument manufacturers now provide resources to make switching carrier gas easier. This How To Guide will take you through the steps necessary to convert from helium to hydrogen as a carrier gas for Gas Chromatography. Read more

Upcoming Webcast

Editors' Series: HILIC: A Critical Evaluation
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
11:00 AM EST; 8:00 AM PST
In this web seminar, we will explore the possibilities and limitations of HILIC using columns packed with sub-2-µm fully porous particles and sub-3-µm core-shell particles.
Adopting Dynamic and Lean Gas Chromatography Operations that Do More with Less
Tuesday, January 19, 2013
11:00 AM EST; 8:00 AM PST
In this web seminar, we will illustrate some innovative ways to reduce the total number of GC systems used to accomplish the same level of productivity, share the existing components for maximum efficiency, and quickly redistribute application workload as needed — all with minimal capital investment. We will also show how instrument downtime for maintenance activities, whether planned or unplanned, can basically be reduced to zero. Join us for this discussion to evolve your lab into a dynamic and lean operation with fewer systems and lower operating costs.
