The Analytical Scientist is a very smartly produced scientific magazine full of interesting articles, including many on chromatography. I’ve had the pleasure of working with two of the minds behind this publication, Rich Whitworth and Frank van Geel, on a TAS GCxGC contribution, and have been impressed with the volume of quality work they’ve put out. I’m sure they’d be the first to admit that it’s not just the two of them; it’s the people that work with them that make their efforts stronger. And that’s one of the reasons I’m posting this blog, to acknowledge the contribution of Restek’s Chris Nelson, one of the chief architects behind our EZGC™ Online Suite, which recently won one of The Analytical Scientist Innovations Awards for 2014.
Restek’s EZGC™ Online Suite, which includes the Method Translator and Flow Calculator, and a Chromatogram Modeler, speeds gas chromatography method development, and we’ve benefitted greatly from these tools in our own work as you can see from the list of ChromaBLOGraphy posts below. We couldn’t have done any of this without the efforts of Chris Nelson to make the program accurate and user-friendly. So...many thanks to Chris for his work on EZGC™ and to The Analytical Scientist for recognizing the power of this GC method development platform. Try the tools in your lab today and let me know what you think of them. You can get some ideas from the posts below (note that those are links that you can click in to get the post).
