Hot Topics and Adoption of GCxGC (Comprehensive GC)
The objective of this networking session is to discuss the latest topics in comprehensive GC, new applications of the technology, and in particular the challenges to validating (ISO, ASTM, ASBC, AOAC etc) methods.

Demo Zone | Wednesday, February 28th | 11:30 am to 12:00 pm | Demo Area 2 (Booth 2342)

TGM800: Automated Thermogravimetric Moisture Determination
Join us and see how the TGM800, a new automated thermogravimetric moisture instrument, directly determines moisture using a loss on drying technique meeting the requirements of most international loss on drying standards covering sample mass, oven temperature, and air flow requirements while providing additional benefits including increased work flow efficiency, minimal operator time, and automated sample batch throughput of up to 16 samples with sequential sample mass measurements occurring throughout the analysis process ensuring weight constancy at the end of analysis. The demonstration will cover instrument operation including software and hardware features.
