GC Columns by Altmann Analytik are high quality (each column is one-by-one tested to assure the maximum column-to-column reproducibility and quality) low-cost alternative to expensive branded products. Altmann GC Columns are available in all possible dimensions (range of more than 5.000 GC Columns). They offer both general-purpose and application-specific solutions to analysts around the world.
- Complete range of analytical columns for GC, GC-MS, FAST-GC, Wide-Bore GC, Chiral-GC
- Special and innovative products and accessories for Multidimensional-GC (inlcuding GCxGC), High Temperature GCand MEMS micro-fabricated "Lab-on-a-chip" GC
- Excellent efficiency and inertness
Altmann offers the widest choice of FAST-GC columns with phases that don't have any equivalent on the market. FAST-GC is a technique that allows to reduce the analysis time while keeping an adequate resolution power, thus increasing your throughput.
For FAST GC analyses, without losing separation quality, columns with (very) small diameters must be used. In practice this means columns between 0.1 and 0.2 mm ID. If also other operational parameters are optimized (such as column length, film thickness, fast temperature programming, high column pressure/ gas speed), very short analysis times can be realised without losing resolution.
Fast-GC allows accurate and consistent analyses up to 10 times faster than standard GC. FAST-GC can be applied to medium-to-high complexity mixtures analysis and provides 3-10x faster analysis compared to conventional GC. With FAST-GC you can get 1-2 min long analysis. Quicker results allow more timely decisions, less product waste, higher-value products, and a shorter time to market.
