Selecting your Custom GC Packed Column
A packed column for GC consists of a fine-particle stationary phase that is fully packed in glass or stainless steel tubing. A GC packed column is useful and highly effective when you need to separate lighter gases such as hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and more. When selecting a packed column for your gas chromatography, you must consider the stationary phase, column length, column ID, and particle mesh size. These properties can contribute to the column performance when separating compounds. Shimadzu offers a wide range of solid support and liquid phases to meet your packed column requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Packed Columns
1. What is the difference between capillary column and packed column?
In a packed column, the column is shorter in length, larger in diameter and is fully packed with porous solid particles or solid particles coated with a layer of liquid stationary phase. They generally produce broader peaks and therefore have a lower sensitivity and resolution. Most packed columns are custom-made. Visit the custom packed column request page to get your quotation.
Capillary columns are longer in length and much narrower in diameter. They have an open tubular concept which has the stationary phase, either liquid stationary phase (WCOT column), porous particle (PLOT column) or support coated particle (SCOT column), coated on the inner wall of the capillary.
2. Should I use stainless steel or glass packed columns for GC?
Glass may seem breakable but it is a standard operating procedure to use a glass custom packed column when you are working with biochemicals and pesticides. It is recommended when you are separating compounds that tend to bind with the walls of the stainless steel column. Stainless steel packed column for GC, on the other hand, offers more durability as it won’t break during transport. It can run on a higher flow and can withstand greater pressure.
