Applications of Specific Detectors in Microanalysis by Gas Chromatography
Although the high sensitivity of the detectors is largely responsible for the wide applicability of gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) in biological studies, it is not the only characteristic to consider when choosing a detector for a given analytical problem. The specificity of the detector often plays a more important part in determining whether the desired information will be obtained in a given analysis and how reliable that information will be. In this paper, several examples of applications of highly specific detection systems that demonstrate the contribution these devices can make will be described.
