Newest Innovations in GC Systems
Posted: September 14, 2012
Happy Friday LabWrench users, I hope you all had a productive week.
In today's blog, we will be having a look at GC Systems. If you have ever worked in a laboratory, chances are that you are familiar with the many uses of Gas Chromatography systems. Some of these uses include the separation and analysis of compounds, testing the puritfy of substances, and identifying unknown samples.
An interesting feature of GC Systems is that they can be used in conjunction with many different detectors which helps increase the flexibility of the system when identifying particular substances. For example, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is considered the “gold standard” in the field of forensic science when it comes to substance identification.
According to the responses from a survey conducted by Lab Manager Magazine, the biggest factors that influence the decision-making process when buying a new GC System are as follows (percent of people that stated of high importance);
Accuracy = 96%
Availability of supplies and accessories = 83%
Ease of maintenance = 85%
Easy transfer of methods = 84%
Price = 85%
