Date & time

What will you gain from the course?
You will learn about the different detectors available in gas chromatography, their relative sensitivities, dynamic ranges and how to choose the best detector for your analysis. This webinar will provide you with practical knowledge to go back to your lab, select the best detector for your analysis and optimise it.

What does it cover?

  • The advantages and disadvantages of universal and selective detectors
  • What to look for in a detector including sensitivity and dynamic range
  • The different types of GC detectors including FID, ECD, TCD, FPD, NPD, PID, SCD/NCD, ASD, IRD 
  • How to choose the best detector(s) for your analysis and optimise the importance of optimising parameters
  • Splitting your column effluent between multiple detectors

Who should attend?
This course is ideal for those with a basic knowledge of gas chromatography and with a wish to learn in more detail about the different components and key considerations within a gas chromatograph and GC method. Combine this with the other topics in the Practical Essentials of GC range to get a full, detailed view of gas chromatography.
