During this course you will learn all the knowledge and skills you need for the correct execution of analyzes with capillary gas chromatography. Here you will gain insight into the basic principles of capillary GC, the construction of instruments, injection and detection and with the applications of the many types of columns for capillary GC. You will not only learn this in theory, but you will also be applying it yourself during the practical sessions, which will be carried out on different brands of GCs.

Target group

You have recently started working with capillary GC and have little or no experience. You would like to have a better understanding of the separating principles, equipment and types of columns for GC analyses. You would like to interpret GC results and be able to improve separations by GC.

End result

After finishing this course, you are able to start a gas chromatograph independently. You can assess the status and quality of the system on the basis of a test chromatogram. You will get a good overview of the structure of the GC, the properties of various injectors and detectors and of the most commonly used GC columns.
