Market Profile
Market Profile: Market Profile: Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC)
Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) makes use of a supercritical fluid, typically carbon dioxide (CO2), instead of an organic or aqueous solvent, to carry the sample through the chromatography column. The advantages of SFC when using carbon dioxide are that there are no organic solvents to dispose of. Read More.

Editors' Series: Faster Gas Chromatography in Practice
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
11:00 AM EDT.
Want faster GC separations? Tune in to learn a convenient method for selecting the most appropriate route for speeding up specific GC applications.
Solving One of Chromatography’s Biggest Dilemma — Proper Sealing of Chromatography Autosamper Vials — Using the Advanced Vial Closure System (AVCS)
Thursday, June 6, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT.
This web seminar will review the impact an innovative vial & closure design, like AVCS, can have on improving data quality by providing data that supports how an AVCS-designed vial & closure eliminates under and over compression of vial seals while improving robotic autosampler pick-up of vials, ensuring more centered vial closure positioning and greater optical recognition of vials placed in autosamplers.
