During gas chromatography (GC) column installation, ferrules are used to provide a leak-free seal. Different materials and configurations of ferrules are available, the choice of which depends on your application and use within the GC instrument. This primer provides a guide to GC column ferrule selection including ferrule material, I.D., and design (short vs. standard).
We are here to help you feel confident with the principles of method optimization so your lab can improve separations and save hours in extraneous method run times, driving efficiency and productivity. As the analytical column is the heart of the GC, selecting the right column ferrule for your application and instrument will minimize downtime and improve lab productivity. Ensuring the right ferrule selection isn’t just good science – it’s good for your laboratory’s bottom line.
