Low-bleed GC and GCMS Columns

There is a rapidly increasing population of benchtop GC/MS instruments in analytical laboratories that analyze a widening range of trace level, higher temperature samples. These samples require increasinglyinert, lower bleed, higher temperature columns. In response to this growing need, Agilent Technologies designed several "ms" columns to chromatograph a broader range of low level samples and generate lower bleed even at higher temperatures.

What makes an Agilent J&W low-bleed column exceptional? Unique polymer chemistry and proprietary surface deactivation, both of which have contributed to columns that adhere to the tightest quality control specifications in the industry for bleed, inertness, selectivity and efficiency. Agilent J&W "ms" columns utilize special surface deactivation and siloxane chemistries which enhance the chromatographic performance of siloxane polymers.
