Have you maximized the sensitivity of your analyses on your GC or GC/MS system? Are your peak shapes optimal, or do they tail and have shoulders? Matching the correct injection style, supplies, column type and column flow can bring an analysis to the next level.
This webinar delves into the sensitivity of different GC detectors — yes, mass spectrometers (single quad and triple quad!) and non-MS detectors — and optimizing the GC supplies and parameters for the best separation and peak shape as the analytes head into the detector.

We also compare column styles and carrier gas parameters, and then discuss troubleshooting steps for split and split-less injections – how to step back and check the problem source: parameters or instrument. Moreover, there is more to a mass spec than Scan; we delve into SIM for the single quad and MRM for the triple quad with discussion on setting up parameters like dwell times and dynamic MRM.

What does it cover?

  • Sensitivity of non-MS and MS detectors
  • Understanding column flow (constant flow vs. constant pressure and why it matters)
  • Liner and column selection for select applications, such as pesticides applications across multiple detectors
  • Comparison of ms UI columns and bleed stability over time
  • Choosing and troubleshooting split or split-less injections
  • Using Scan/SIM and or MRM to maximize sensitivity and how to set up the parameters for SIM and MRM.

By viewing this presentation you will learn...

  • about maintaining sensitivity and peak shapes in your analyses with a GC (and GC/MS) system through column selection and the correct injection and column flow styles
  • how to set-up your GC(MS) system to maximize the ability (and sensitivity) of the single quad and triple quad mass spectrometers with setting up SIM and MRM parameters.
