New LPGC Approach Speeds Up Pesticides Analysis

Throughput is one of the most important parameters in the lab. The more samples we can analyze in a day, the sooner we can get home. Enter low-pressure GC (LPGC), a new technique that uses a relatively short, wide, thick film analytical column paired with a narrower guard column that functions as a restrictor. This setup allows faster analysis without a total loss of efficiency. The real question is how much faster is it? Here, we explore the answer with a QuEChERS pesticides analysis.
