  Ensuring Reliable Sample Containment with Autosampler Vials

Reliable containment of samples is crucial and the integrity, cleanliness and consistency of vials is critical for accurate analysis.

agilentMany analysts think of vials as simple components that do not affect results which is an easy mistake to make…until something goes wrong. Using vials that are not fit for purpose can have a significant impact on the quality of analysis and there are a number of issues to look for in uncertified autosampler vials, including: Non-uniform bottom thickness which can damage needles and cause inconsistent sample draw...


  Utilizing Fast HPLC Screening Methods for the Detection of Steroids

As the importance of steroids in the regulation of bioprocesses has increased so has the demand for fast screening methods for their detection.

Agilent technologiesHPLC is a highly regarded analytical technique for pharmaceutical applications due to its unrivalled analytical validation characteristics; including accuracy, precision, limit of detection, specificity, linearity and range, and ruggedness. The high throughput demands of quantitative steroid analysis require faster run times and as a result there has been a focus on the development of fast HPLC screening methods to detect steroids...


  Benefits of Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) for the Analysis of Mycotoxins in Food and Feed

The globalization of the food chain has meant that the focus on food safety is greater than ever before and as a result, food manufacturers are facing increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.

agilentOne area that is receiving a growing amount of attention is mycotoxin intake from contaminated food and feed which causes mycotoxin intoxication. Mycotoxins are secondary fungal metabolites that are typically produced by fungi growing on grains and fruit during shipment or storage. When ingested, mycotoxins may cause acute or chronic disease and it has been shown that repeated exposure to low level mycotoxin ingestion can affect...


  Improving GC Connections for Reliable, Robust and Reproducible Results

Leaks at gas chromatography (GC) column connections are a common source of frustration and wasted time in laboratories.

agilentTime is often spent manually tightening connections between columns using a handheld tool – time which could otherwise be spent analyzing results or running more investigations. Preventing GC leaks has become a priority for researchers looking to save time and money while achieving high quality results. GC column connections leak because capillary column ferrules made of graphite polyimide blends loosen after...
