On November 3rd 2009, The Chromatographic Society staged a one day joint scientific meeting with the RSC North West Region Analytical Division entitled “Advances in Gas Chromatography”. It was held at LGC Ltd “The Heath Business Park” Runcorn. This is one of the Chromatographic Society’s series of biennial meetings.

Gas Chromatography (GC) is still the technique of choice for analysing both volatile and semi volatile compounds. As we move to more complex and difficult matrices, much is now being asked of the technique in terms of separation and limits of detection. The meeting set out to look at newer detection/separation solutions and profile case studies from the pharmaceutical, petrochemical, forensic and environmental areas.

In parallel to the full meeting program there was an instrument exhibition with representatives from all the major GC instrument and consumables suppliers. The meeting was attended by some 130 delegates from both Industry and Academia and as with the 2007 meeting the event was a sell out with registration having to close some weeks before the event - highlighting the popularity and relevance of the technology to modern day analytical laboratories.
