Gas ChromatographyNC

Non-Credit Certificate

What is Gas Chromatography?

Gas Chromatography is an analytical technique commonly used in research, environmental and forensic laboratories to separate and identify a mixture of thermally stable and volatile substances. A mobile phase, generally an insert carrier gas such as nitrogen, helium, argon or carbon dioxide is used to carry the substances through a heated stationary phase (column). A detector located at the end of the column provides quantitative measurements of the components in the mixture as they elute together with the carrier gas.

Courses/programs listed with “NC” are non-credit courses/programs.
