Product News: Improve your linear alpha olefins (LAO) impurity analysis with Rxi-LAO columns

04 Nov 2022


Specifically applicated for LAO impurity analysis, Restek’s new Rxi-LAO GC columns provide accurate analysis of these compounds, including 1-butene, 1-hexene, and 1-octene. Combining a stationary phase with a unique selectivity and an optimal, one-column method, these new columns help labs improve their analysis by increasing system uptime and sample throughput.

Rxi-LAO columns are defined by four key features:

  • Unique selectivity enables high resolution of impurities from peaks of interest for excellent data quality.
  • One-column method reduces instrument setup and analysis time.
  • Application specific column dimensions increase sample throughput.
  • Pro EZGC chromatogram modeler libraries simplify analysis optimization.

As worldwide demand for polyethylene increases, so does the pressure on labs performing LAO impurity analysis. Switching to Restek’s Rxi-LAO columns help labs achieve significant savings in time and resources when performing this critical analysis.
