Trust Your Science: How does carbon load on a column relate to retention?

Video   Jun 21, 2018

 

Have you ever heard that higher carbon loads on a chromatographic column lead to more retention? Or, have you heard that column equivalency is driven by matching percent carbon between columns?

Columns specified in compendial monographs are typically designated by the bonded phase and percent carbon value. Many scientists expect equivalent retention between columns with equivalent % carbon values. In this episode of Trust Your Science, we take a look at the impact the percent carbon value has on chromatographic retention, to prove or disprove if there truly is a correlation between the two. Kim Haynes and Jonathan Turner are chromatography experts at Waters.

The focus of a forensic toxicology laboratory is to determine the presence or absence of drugs in biological samples. Often times when it comes to drug testing, the sensitivity of the analytical method is critical because scientists need to detect chemical compounds in very small amounts. Multidimensional liquid chromatography (2DLC) is one option forensics labs can use to test biological samples, such as urine, blood, oral fluid, hair, to determine if an illicit drug or toxin played a role in a person's death.
