GC Guard Columns for Enhanced Protection

For enhanced performance and extended column life, Shimadzu also offers GC guard columns. These columns act as protective barriers, shielding the primary GC column by capturing contaminants or particles. By utilising a guard column, you can increase the lifespan of the GC column and save costs. 

Customised Solutions for Specific Requirements

Shimadzu understands that each GC column application is unique, and specific requirements may arise. That's why we offer customised GC columns tailored to your particular needs. Our team of experts collaborates closely with you to have a clear idea of your application and recommend or develop a custom GC column that meets your precise specifications. This personalised approach ensures you achieve optimal results and efficiency in your analytical processes.

Reliable GC Column Application at Shimadzu

GC columns and customised GC columns are the solutions to various GC column applications. In order to cater to your GC application requirements, Shimadzu offers a wide range and high-quality GC columns, capillary columns, metal columns, PLOT, and customised GC columns. We can provide you with dedicated capillary columns for GC used for pesticide analysis, analysis of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) analysis, blood alcohol analysis, PCB analysis, volatile amine analysis and many other GC applications.

High performance columns for highest inertness and excellent performance

Shimadzu’s series of high-quality capillary columns provides the highest inertness and excellent performance. Our high-performance columns deliver exceptional temperature stability, leading to minimal bleeding properties and heightened system sensitivity. This enables achieving reduced limits of detection (LOD), quicker system stabilization, and shortened conditioning times.

Metal Columns: Ideal for Specific Applications

Shimadzu's metal columns are specially designed for specific applications that require unique characteristics not found in traditional columns. Metal columns offer superior performance in applications such as sulphur compounds, permanent gases, and metal analyses. These GC columns provide excellent stability, robustness, and selectivity, enabling precise analysis of challenging samples in various industries.

PLOT Columns: Enhanced Separation for Complex Matrices

Our PLOT (Porous Layer Open Tubular) columns excel in analysing complex matrices and volatile compounds. The unique porous structure of PLOT columns allows for enhanced separation and analysis of typically difficult to resolve components. These columns are particularly suited for environmental analysis, forensic analysis, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) analysis. PLOT columns offer superior retention capacity and can withstand challenging sample matrices, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

Dedicated columns for dedicated applications and analytes

In order to solve chromatographic challenges, we provide an array of specific GC columns for dedicated applications like EPA methods, food analysis, clinical samples and more. These columns and stationary phases have been fine-tuned and rigorously tested to deliver optimal separation, precise quantification, and rapid analysis durations.

Customisation of GC Columns same as Customised Solutions for Specific Requirements???

Each analytical challenge is unique; sometimes, standard GC columns may only partially meet your specific requirements. Shimadzu offers customisation services for GC columns, allowing you to tailor the column to your specifications.

Our customised GC columns are available in either glass or stainless-steel tubing, and you can choose the diameter, length, solid support material, coated phase, and mesh size that best suits your analytical needs. By submitting your request for a customised GC column to Shimadzu, you can enhance the performance and efficiency of your analyses by obtaining a column GC designed specifically for your application.

Frequently Asked Questions About GC Columns

1. What is the function of a GC column?

Gas chromatography (GC) columns are essential to gas chromatography as they are used in separating complex mixtures. It is a crucial tool used and applied in analytical chemistry as it is efficient, and effective. It is made up of a glass-like material called fused silica coated with a layer of stationary phase that interacts with the analytes as it goes through the column. This interaction results in the separation of the more volatile compounds from the less volatile ones.

2. What are the types of GC columns?

There are two types of gas chromatography (GC) columns - packed columns and capillary columns. Packed columns are short and thick columns made of stainless steel or glass. These GC columns have low separation performance and create broad, peaked shapes in the chromatogram. Packed columns are less susceptible to contamination and can handle larger sample volumes.

Capillary columns are currently the most common GC column type. These columns have superior separation performance and are ideal for highly sensitive separation and analysis. Capillary columns create sharper peaks resulting in higher sensitivity and lower detection limit.
