Quo Vadis, Capillary GC?
 
How mature is capillary gas chromatography (CGC)? And where is it going? Frank David, Koen Sandra and Pat Sandra draw on 30 years of CGC experience to answer the big questions.
 
 
 
 
Into the Cannabinome
 
Cannabis contains hundreds of potentially bioactive chemical compounds. We find out how analytical scientists are using GC-MS and other techniques to explore the cannabinome.
 
 
 
 
GCxGC Game Changer
 
“I believe that the future is bright for the field, and that the day will come when GC×GC is in widespread use for routine analysis,” says Tadeusz Górecki, University of Waterloo.

Application Notes
 
 
Analysis of Diacetyl and Other VDKs
 
Vicinal diketones (VDK) are naturally produced compounds in the fermentation process. The levels are of great importance as the concentration of these compounds can greatly alter the flavor of a beverage. This application looks at how the low cost 200 Series GC can be used to monitor these levels.
 
 
 
Analysis of N-Nitrosamines in Beer and Malt
 
Nitrosamines are a group of carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds. These compounds can be formed in malt during the malting process and then potentially be passed onto the final beer product. This application looks at how the 800 series TEA can be used to test for these compounds to ensure product safety and compliance.
 
 
 
Routine Quality Control Analysis of Cannabis using a Low Cost GC
 
This Document looks at how a low cost Ellutia 200 Series GC with an FID can be used for a number of quality control applications in the cannabis market. These applications include potency testing, residual solvent analysis, pesticide screening and terpene analysis.
 
 
 
Analysis of N-Nitrosamines and Nitrosatable Substance in Toys As per BS EN 71-12:2013
 
Nitrosamines are a group of carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds. Daily and prolonged contact with manufactured items including rubber products, such as toys, will lead to continual exposure of these compounds. This application looks at how the 800 series TEA can be used to test for these compounds to ensure product safety and compliance.

200 Series GC - The Affordable Compact Gas Chromatograph with Big Performance
 
The 200 Series Gas Chromatograph makes gas chromatography accessible to all. Designed to take up less bench space, to be easier to use and be affordable to purchase whilst not compromising on analytical performance.
 
 
 
800 Series TEA - The Industry Standard for Nitrosamine Analysis
 
The 800 Series TEA from Ellutia is chemiluminescence detector for nitro, nitroso and nitrogen containing compounds that can be interfaced to most models of GC. Thanks to its incredible sensitivity and almost infinite selectivity for nitrogen containing compounds it is the detector of choice for nitrosamine analysis.
