‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence
A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.
Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved
For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs.
Artemisinin Mechanism Uncovered
New understanding of how artemisinin works could facilitate development of new drugs and therapeutic strategies against malaria.
Cleaning Out the Membrane Each Day
Cell membranes are made up of a lipid bilayer that is constantly changing due to the flux of material in and out of the cell.
AMRI Acquires Whitehouse Laboratories
Strategically extends AMRI's analytical offerings in rapidly expanding area of outsourcing services.
Novel Approach to Understanding Brain Function
Russell Poldrack scanned his brain to create the most detailed map of brain connectivity ever.
New Analysis Technique for Chiral Activity in Molecules
Professor Hyunwoo Kim of the Chemistry Department and his research team have developed a technique that can easily analyze the optical activity of charged compounds by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.

Practical Laboratory Skills Training Guides: Gas Chromatography
Bookmark and Share

Brian Stuart (Author), published by the Royal Society of Chemistry
ISBN: 9780854044788


Gas chromatography has been the most widely used technique in analytical chemistry for over three decades. It offers unchallenged resolving power for closely related volatile compounds and high sensitivity and selectivity with many of the detector systems. This technique is very accurate and precise when used in the laboratory.

This guide begins by looking at the basic theory behind gas chromatography, then goes on to examine injection and sampling methods and the chromatographic column. Sections on detection, data handling, calibration and standards are followed by problem-solving and practical exercises.

Gas Chromatography is one of the Practical Laboratory Skills Training Guides, a series that aims to make achieving best practice easy. These invaluable manuals will enable both experienced and inexperienced staff to get the essential basics of any experiment right simply by following the clear and easy to use instructions provided. The guides are written by experienced scientists and include minimal theory, plenty of practical exercises in order to assess competence, and trouble shooting information. Other titles are: Measurement of Mass; Measurement of Volume; Measurement of pH; and High Performance Liquid Chromatography.
