Gas Chromatography (GC)
Gas chromatography uses helium, hydrogen or other gases to separate, identify and quantify volatile sample mixtures with reliable results. This technique is widely used in the food, environmental and chemical industries, but also has many other applications, like residual solvents testing in the pharmaceutical industry. Avantor® has everything you need to perform reproducible GC and GC-MS in the lab.
With precision engineered gas chromatography columns and supplies, you can ensure reproducibility of results and dependable performance, regardless of your instrument platform.

What is Gas Chromatography?
Gas chromatography (GC) is a valuable analytical technique that is capable of separating and quantifying a wide variety of volatile sample mixtures and producing very reliable results for long periods of time. Used extensively in the food, environmental and chemical industries it also has wide applicability in many other areas. The technique uses a gas (usually helium and hydrogen) as a carrier for the injected sample, which is vaporized using elevated temperatures.
