Event Overview

For more than 50 years, gas chromatography has matured, and largely meets analytical performance demands for the applications it serves. If you talk to any chromatographer, each will explain their unique challenges. Most of these challenges are either hardware or matrix related. We will describe in detail how GC innovation exceeds not only performance demands, but usability expectations and application needs of today’s GC labs, driving improved operational excellence for their enterprises. Specifically, this webinar will discuss some of the analytical capabilities of Custom Essence, a custom fragrance producer, and how new GC technologies has redefined their daily workflow. 

In this webinar, you will learn more about:
  • What new innovations have occurred in GC technology
  • Who is Custom Essence and what do they do
  • Why is GC important in the workflow of fragrance analysis
  • How has Custom Essence utilized the Intuvo and improved their workflow
