Faster GC Using Existing Instrumentation

Description

There are a number of ways that the analysis time can be reduced. All depends on how well the components are separated in the present application. Most easy is to trade in some resolution for speed using higher gas velocities or using a shorter column. If the exact separation must be maintained, a choice has to be made between using hydrogen as carrier gas, or use a smaller ID capillary column (or a combination). Important is that in the new method, the same chromatogram must be obtained. Using the EZGC method translator, you can simply calculate the oven program you need for that. Also the ProEZGC chromatogram modeler, you can see the impact of any changed parameter, using your computer.
