Thermo Fisher Scientific said that the ultra-low bleed TraceGOLD GC columns ensure high sensitivity levels are obtained with low baseline noise, resulting in improved limits of detection with enhanced resolution of low level analytes.

Reducing column bleed consequently minimizes the risk of contamination within the Mass Spectrometer, as well as extending the interval between scheduled maintenance, leading to an increase in productivity.

As an essential requirement for all analytical laboratories, low column bleed also facilitates accuracy and reproducibility of the stationary phase, leading to an increase in run-to-run reproducibility. Furthermore, even between batches, every column provides the same high-quality performance. This mean each TraceGOLD column delivers valid and consistent data for any GC application.
