GC/MS training for laboratories

Your teams need training in the GC/MS chromatographic technique...

What is the principle of GC/MS?

First of all, what is gas chromatography (GC)? It is an analytical technique that separates a mixture of volatile or semi-volatile molecules.

Using this technique, the sample is first heated to a high temperature and then vaporized. Thus, the gaseous form of the volatile molecule is injected into the chromatographic column. 

Following this separative phase, a detector transforms the arrival of the different molecules into a signal: the chromatogram (peaks). This detector can be MS, MS/MS or FID.

In addition, Gas Chromatography is coupled to Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS).  This GC/MS technique has several objectives:

  • the separation of the various volatile and semi-volatile compounds of a mixture,
  • then, to analyze them in a qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative way.

For which compounds is the GC/MS technique used? This technique is particularly adapted to the analysis of apolar volatile compounds (residual solvents, oils, hydrocarbons, alkane derivatives and small organic molecules).

Why train in gas chromatography GC/MS?

The applications of GC/MS analysis are multiple…you will be able to :

  • Deformation

  • Stability study of chemical formulation

  • Characterization of Materials

  • Raw material analysis

  • Analysis and study of container-content interactions in the laboratory

  • Chemical analysis

  • Impurity identification
