Faster GC Using Existing Instrumentation
There a number of ways analysis time can be reduced. It is dependent on how well the components are separated in the present application. Most easy to do is trade in some resolution for speed using higher gas velocities or 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 methods, the same chromatogram (and peak elution order) must be obtained. Using the EZGC method translator, you can simply calculate the oven program you need. Also, you can see the impact of any changed parameter, using the ProEZGZ chromatogram modeler.
