Lab managers never like the idea of expensive and time-consuming instrument downtime, quite often the causes of these delays can be resolved rapidly if they have a sound understanding of troubleshooting. Shimadzu UK offer a free GC Troubleshooting Guide which has been made up to help GC operators understand how to deal with common problems and how to troubleshoot and fix them.

Shimadzu UK’s guide will help GC operators around a lot of common problems including:

  • Unstable baseline
  • Carryover and ghost peaks
  • Fronting or tailing peaks
  • Poor resolution
  • Retention time variability 

Researchers, analytical chemists, academia and all lab personnel who want to improve their GC troubleshooting knowledge can download the guide via this link.
