What will you learn on this course?
This one day course mixes classroom and laboratory training and is designed for those who want to enhance their skills in the use of Agilent CFT devices, like the purged and non-purged Agilent splitters, QuickSwap and optimized Tee systems to manage their carrier gas flow through the GC system.

Applications include splitting to multiple detectors, using multiple columns into a single detector, back flushing through the pre-column or analytical column or changing the column without venting the mass spectrometer.

The course includes the selection of columns & restrictors, installation of columns into these devices, system configuration, method optimization and the development of backflushing skills.
