As available samples become increasingly active, and more complex, you simply cannot afford interferences caused by flow-path activity. A flow path that is not inert can cause peak tailing and signal loss. You can lose critical sample components, leading you to believe they are not present. In addition, the need to repeat or verify suspect analyses wastes resources, hinders productivity, and hurts your profitability. Even worse, unreliable results can have catastrophic implications for environmental safety and food quality, and can lead to inaccurate results in drug abuse analysis. To achieve the lower detection limits demanded by increasingly stringent regulatory obligations, and to confidently quantify active analytes, you need the most inert flow path possible.
