Chromatography Detectors

Chromatography detectors are used to detect the analytes being eluted from a chromatography column making them an essential component of any GC (gas chromatography) or LC (liquid chromatography) apparatus. Non-destructive methods of analyte detection are preferred as these allow samples to be retained for further analysis or chemical transformations. UV/Vis spectrometers and UV detectors are the most common chromatography detectors. Other methods of detection are also possible such as conductivity, pH, refractive index, light scattering, fluorescence and radioactivity detection.
