We have a Shimadzu GC2014 with FID (flame ionisation detection). This is suitable for quantitative analysis of volatile materials (such as monomers), however, it does not offer chemical identification.

The cylinder gas is compressed air and the generator is hydrogen.

Both our GCFID and GCMS only have liquid injection, this means that analysis of solvents is often challenging.

Before using, please check that:

There is enough gas in the cylinder

That the hydrogen generator has been topped up with water

What column is fitted compared to what you require

The solvent wash bottles on the autosampler are topped up and the septa on them are in good condition
