DLS Solutions Applications : Chromatography

Chromatography is a fascinating and well-established technique used in analytical chemistry, process monitoring and biotechnology. Its fundamentals are based on the concept of separation of material using physical properties. The materials are usually gaseous or liquid. In high school or boot camp courses, the separation of material concept is introduced through simple demonstration using paper or gel chromatography. A good way to explore chromatography is the cut-and-weigh method, an older yet surprisingly accurate approach. An example where chromatography shines is gas chromatography (GC). It is not uncommon to find QC labs filled with rows of GC equipment running canned methods.
