Thermo Fisher Scientific says that SafeGuard can extend the life of the analytical column without compromising its chromatographic performance.
To prolong their life, GC columns are routinely cut to remove contaminant deposits. With conventional columns, however, this practice reduces the separation accuracy, peak resolution and column quality over time. With SafeGuard, users can cut columns during routine maintenance with no impact on the chromatography performance of the analytical column.
Thermo Fisher’s TraceGOLD™ GC Columns with SafeGuard are available in a range of guard column lengths and analytical column specifications, and are suitable for use in a broad spectrum of applications that require the injection of involatile sample matrix, particularly in environmental, forensic, food safety and petrochemical analyses.
