Abstract: Using an Rtx®-CLPesticides column set is the best strategy for labs considering alternate carrier gases as a way to reduce helium consumption. These columns have a unique selectivity and produce faster results than DB®-CLP1 and DB®-CLP2 columns when using either helium or hydrogen. In addition, only Rtx®-CLPesticides columns can be used with nitrogen, which give labs the freedom to choose the carrier gas option that is best for them.
