The course covers the major components and subsystems of a gas chromatography and its accessories, including inject system, columns, detectors and data system. It presents operating principles, calibration methods, set-up procedures, and failure modes for each along with practical examples. Preventative maintenance is covered with emphasis on maintaining analysis and troubleshooting methods. The course discusses optimization of column lengths, flows, and temperatures and includes the necessary theoretical information in each part. This course is designed for the new or experienced GC practitioner who wishes to increase instrument uptime and laboratory productivity.

The course includes also the practical maintenance where the important parts of GC are demonstrated i.e. inject system part, different liner and syringes, maintenance kit, different columns type, FID detector, and other accessory parts which is variable used.


  1. The aim is to provide first hand information to the participants on optimal use of Gas chromatography (GC). 
  2. A special emphasis on applications, maintenance and troubleshooting.
  3. Imparting participants the fundamental technique knowledge of Gas Chromatography.
  4. To understand GC maintenance methods as a routine checks.
  5. Knowledge of accessories and consumables required for GC operation.
  6. Good laboratory practices for accurate, reliable and get it right-first analysis.
  7. Introduction to applications of analysis and method development.
  8. To familiarize participants to the advance techniques for achieving gas chromatography analysis, qualitative and quantitative methods, cause and effect diagrams and standard calibration graph.

All technicians, chemists, chemical engineers, instrument engineers, supervisors and managers who work in any laboratory field i.e. medical, biological, oil, environment, water, etc
