Last week in ChemSem, we heard from Mark Merrick, a lead scientists who works for LECO Corporation at Saint Joseph, MI. He told us about the potential that 2D GC has and the many challenges that this technique needs to overcome.
In general, Merrick said that the instrument could be faster, the column connections could be better and that the peak quality needs to be improved. He also mentioned that the installation of the instrument could be easier. The software of the instrument needs improvements also because it has difficulties processing complex samples.
