The article was published in February 2010 in Lab Manager Magazine as a full magazine spread. A part of the Evolution series, the article traces the development of the gas chromatography equipment.
Gas chromatography traces its roots from paper chromatography in 1903 when it was first used to separate plant pigments while the mobile phase of it was added in the 1930s. The gas chromatograph was first made accessible to researchers in 1955 when it used an oven to adjust the temperature. This model was the foundation of today’s more advanced GC systems.
