Recommended Application

TraceGOLD™ TG-5MS GC Columns These columns employ the most widely used 5% phenyl MS phase in gas chromatography.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5MS GC Columns with SafeGuard The Safeguard feature of these columns extends column lifetime and ensures more consistent results over a longer period of time.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5MT Metal GC Columns These columns ensure greater stability and inertness at elevated temperatures even when working with highly active compounds.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5SilMS GC Columns The phenyl groups incorporated in the polysiloxane backbone offer improved thermal stability and reduce bleed and susceptibility to oxidation.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5SILMS GC Columns with SafeGuard The integrated SafeGuard feature of these columns offer the benefit of extended column lifetime.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5MS AMINE GC Columns These columns enable analysis of ppm levels of amines without column priming.
TraceGOLD™ TG-5HT GC Columns Ideal for high temperature GC applications, these columns offer extended operation up to 400°C.
TRACE™ TR-5 GC Columns Excellent starting columns for method development, these columns are capable of performing most required separations.
TRACE™ TR-5MS GC Columns These columns feature a popular GC-MS phase for many applications.
TRACE™ TR-5HT GC Columns These columns feature upper temperature limits as high as 400°C.
