The aim within the laboratory should be to achieve the best separation in the shortest time period. The most commonly used gases as carrier gas for GC are nitrogen, hydrogen and helium.
Several technologies are available for generating high-purity hydrogen, but palladium diffusers offer many advantages over the others.
The Flame Ionisation Detector (FID) detector is the most commonly used detector in Gas Chromatography with around 90% of GCs equipped with at least one. The FID can be used in almost any organic analysis, and is sensitive down to the parts-per-billion (PPB) range, which is the reason for its widespread use in GC analysis in areas from oil and gas, to food and pharmaceuticals.
