Quality Control of Hand Sanitizers using GC

by | Oct 8, 2020

Learn more about the use of gas chromatography for effective alcohol analysis in hand sanitizer following USP <611> and ASTM D3695 method recommendations.

Would you like to learn more about the use of gas chromatography for effective alcohol analysis in hand sanitizer following USP <611> and ASTM D3695 method recommendations? If so, this on-demand webinar will provide the answers.

Gas chromatography (GC) is one of the techniques recommended by USP for alcohol concentration determination. GC can also provide retention time information to verify the alcohol identity, ensuring that the hand sanitizer has not been contaminated. With the qualitative and quantitative analysis capability, Agilent GCs & J&W DB-WAX UI columns will continue to play a key role in the quality control of hand sanitizer.

The webinar focuses on USP <611> and ASTM D3695 methods for alcohol determination.

What does it cover?

  • Why use GC techniques for alcohol analysis in hand sanitizer?
  • Recommended GC configurations and consumables for alcohol analysis
  • Instrument performance on alcohol analysis in terms of analytical precision, accuracy and system suitability performance
  • Agilent chemical purity solution for ASTM 3606 and ASTM 3695
  • Smart connected instrument features.

By viewing this presentation you will learn...

  • how to use GC techniques to help make quality control on the key components in hand sanitizer
  • how to choose the right GC consumables for the targeted analysis
  • how to evaluate the system performance
  • how to accurately qualify and quantify the targeted components in hand sanitizer.
