Application Note: 2 Ways to Attain Sharper Peak Shape and Higher Sensitivity in Gas Chromatography
11 April 2016

In gas chromatography the Method Detection Limit, or MDL, is the minimum concentration of a substance that can be measured with 99% confidence that the analyte concentration is greater than zero. It can be difficult for GC analysts to find a method sensitive enough to meet the MDLs, this technical note from Phenomenex addresses that issue by discussing two methods which produce a sharper peak shape and have higher sensitivity.
