Ultra-Fast GC can Help Make Testing Labs More Profitable and Sustainable

Oct 15 2021

Analytical Testing Laboratories are seeing ever growing numbers of sample. A highly competitive marketplace means end users are demanding faster turn-around times and lower analysis costs. This means companies need to look at the latest techniques and technology available to ensure they can offer the best service at a competitive price, whilst still achieving good profitability and operating a sustainable business.

One technique that can greatly increase sample throughput is Ultra-Fast GC. The Term has been banded around recently with some manufacturers even claiming a conventional GC with 2 channels is Ultra-Fast, So what really is an Ultra-Fast GC?  A True Ultra-Fast GC directly heats the analytical column rather than using a conventional air blown oven. This offers several distinct advantages a conventional air blown GC cannot. The column can be heated at much faster ramp rates, this can help sharpen peaks and decrease analysis time. As only the column is being heated rather than an entire oven the cool down time is greatly decreased, this means that the injection-to-injection cycle time can be a fraction of that of a conventional GC. Directly heating the column rather than an entire oven also mean significantly less energy is consumed per sample, helping companies further reduce their Carbon Footprint and meet their sustainability goals.

Ellutia has been a pioneer in Ultra-Fast GC technology for over 20 Years. The latest 500 Series GC is an innovative new design that can switch between operating as a conventional air-blown GC with regular fused silica column to an Ultra-Fast GC that directly resistively heats a metal column. The 500 Series GC features a compact footprint that means several GC’s can fit under a single autosampler further increasing the sample throughput of a system.

To find out more about the 500 Series GC you can visit Ellutia at the Lab innovations 2021 show Stand B62.
