Whether you are preparing to run your GC(MS) or preparing to go for an actual run, there are steps that you should take to ensure that you are able to run as long as you plan to (or hopefully a little longer). Just like taking the time to stretch and wear the proper foot wear can help you run longer, so can adding a gas clean filter before your instrument can protect your column and help it run longer. Taking advantage of an ultra-inert flow path and supplies is just one of the many ways to start your GC(MS) out as clean as possible and sets you up for success.

This webinar goes over simple strategies to help maintain a clean and healthy GC(MS) system longer, such as how utilizing guard columns can protect your analytical column and back flushing can stop heavier compounds from reaching your mass spec and keep it cleaner. 

What does it cover?

  • Ultra Inert Flow Path Supplies
  • Guard Columns
  • how to keep your GC/MS system clean by using backflushing
  • using Gas Clean Filters to help protect your GC column from impurities.

By viewing this presentation you will learn:

How to set your GC(MS) system for success with the most optimum supplies, tools, and strategies for maintaining a clean system as long as possible.

Why should you view it?

To gain better understanding of strategies and supplies that can be implemented to start your analysis clean and keep your GC(MS) system running longer.
