Low bleed provides reproducible and accurate results
Thermo Scientific TRACE GC columns have been tested and found to provide less than half the bleed of competitive capillary columns. Low bleeding means fewer problems with low sensitivity, contamination of the detector, lower temperature limits, and shorter life spans. These columns have been manufactured with improved bonding to be extremely robust, minimizing the risk of damage due to contaminated carrier gases. Improved column-to-column reproducibility guarantees that your column will work with the same high standard as those purchased years from now. Each column goes through rigorous testing and is delivered with a certificate of traceability to guarantee the performance.
TRACE TR-5MS Columns provide low bleed separations and are ideal for use in GC/MS applications, with a maximum operating temperature of 370°C. These inert columns result in minimal peak tailing and works well for environmental semi-volatile and food applications. The TR-5MS columns show excellent robustness and are the ideal choice for GC/MS instruments doing a wide variety of methods.
