Highly Reproducible Detailed cis/trans FAMEs Analysis Ensured by New Optimized Rt-2560 Column Manufacturing and Application-Specific QC Test
13 July 2017

Restek has optimized the manufacturing process and implemented a new, application-specific, QC-testing procedure for all new Rt-2560 columns (cat.# 13198) in order to ensure consistent performance for detailed cis/trans FAMEs analysis. Restek’s Rt-2560 GC column is commonly used for detailed analysis of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) in foods; for the determination of trans fat content in foods and edible oils; and for profiling of fatty acids in edible oils. The column is well suited to this purpose as it contains a highly polar, nonbonded, biscyanopropyl polysiloxane stationary phase housed in a 100 m x 0.25 mm x 0.20 µm column format.
