Gas chromatography is a technique used for analyzing and separating compounds that can vaporize without decomposing. It is used to test purity and quality of substances, analyze biological specimen, and forensics. Moreover, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MC) is also used to detect drugs, identify and investigate unknown and explosive samples. Gas chromatography a wide range of application in various field such as chemicals, healthcare, oil and gas, agriculture, academics and research institutes, forensic, environmental, and clinical toxicology. In biotechnology and pharmaceutical domain, gas chromatography is used for analytical research and development, drug formulations and production, quality control, and quality assurance. Furthermore, it is used in detection of nucleic acid, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and metabolic profiling. Advancements in technology in gas chromatography products such as GC-2010 plus and GC-2014, which are temperature-programmed chip-based GC helps to decrease analysis time, enhance performance, and provide accuracy.
