Course Description
In Gas chromatography the most important process is to get the sample into the column. If sample transfer is not optimized, the results will not be reliable. Goal of this course is to understand the different injection techniques used and the process how to obtain a narrow injection band.

Target Audience
This short course is intended for the user of GC equipment that wants to understand how the different injection processes work. You will be able to choose between techniques and understand the most important maintenance and troubleshoot items for GC application work. For best result, some experience with GC separations and analytical chemistry is preferred

Course Outline
In this half day course we will discuss the basics of the most popular injection techniques that are used in Gas chromatography. Techniques like split, splitless, direct, on-column and options for large volume injection will be discussed in detail. Also the selection of liners, retention gaps and columns will be addressed. All techniques will be explained using practical examples. At the end we will zoom into some typical "injection" troubleshooting examples.
