Possible GC detector problem areas are:
A good detector for the gas chromatography should comply with a number of requirements:
All the requirements mentioned here for the detector have their limits. The more we require of the system, the closer we get near the limits and inaccuracy and unreliability increase. The more we require, the more problems we can expect. Errors will reinforced if parameters oppose each other.
The limits of the detector characteristics are not fixed, they depend on:
It is recommended (as of course is valid for all parts of the system) to handle it sensibly and efficiently. The efficiency, the accuracy and the reliability of the entire system are influenced by the performance of the detector.
