Benefits offered by automated injection in Gas Chromatography

Manual syringe injection is the most popular gas chromatography sample injection practice adopted in laboratories across the world. The obvious reason for this choice is convenience and low price of syringes. However, keep in mind that it may take considerable time to perfect the skills required to inject volumes with high accuracy and precision. Bear […]

Which technique to use – GC or HPLC?

Chromatography has been used as a versatile technique in the laboratory for separation, identification and quantification of components in mixtures of organic compounds. In the earlier stages Chromatography evolved from column chromatography and planar chromatographic separations based on paper chromatography and thin layer chromatography. Advances in instrumentation technology led to introduction of Gas Chromatography(GC) and High […]

Safe Handling of Laboratory Instruments

Sophisticated analytical instruments have become essential necessity in modern day research and industrial laboratories. Such instruments provide benefits of high accuracy of results and time saving due to their capability of handling large number of samples in the limited time available. However, such instruments require safe handling as they present potential hazards of electrocution,exposure to […]

Essential measures for prevention of harm from laboratory chemicals

Laboratory chemicals offer a diverse range of hazards to laboratory workers and need to be handled with extreme care. Exposure to such hazardous materials becomes inevitable but adherence to safety guidelines can prevent such exposure and minimize the resulting harm. The earlier article How laboratory chemicals gain entry into your body discusses the four common groups […]

How laboratory chemicals gain entry into your body?

Laboratory chemicals are found commonly as solids, powders, gases, fumes and liquids. Your body is vulnerable to harm through exposure to chemicals when you work in laboratories. The extent of harm can depend on the level of exposure and individual tolerances to allergic reactions of such materials. In your school days a lab coat was […]

What specifies the flammability characteristics of laboratory solvents?

A laboratory houses several solvents which play diverse roles in analysis and synthesis activities. The quantities of such solvents in laboratories are often much lower than those found in warehouses. Fortunately the fire hazards posed by flammable solvents are less in laboratories in comparison to places of bulk storage. The risk in laboratories is further […]

Tips on prevention of laboratory fire accidents

Fire accidents in laboratories can cause immeasurable damage in terms of serious injuries to laboratory workers, damage to expensive instruments and laboratory facilities, financial losses and loss of man days. Fire hazards in the laboratory outlines the types of flammable laboratory materials and classification of fires based on the nature of such materials. The present article […]

Need for exercising control over Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS is a useful resource of information on chemical properties, physical behaviour,hazard properties, handling and storage requirements, toxicology, properties, transportation guidelines and first aid measures that should be adopted in the event of exposure to the chemical. Every laboratory worker cannot be expected to know the information given in MSDS […]
