Ionic Liquid GC Column Option for the Analysis of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Compared to existing ‘wax’ columns, the SLB-IL60 column offers unique selectivity, some cis/trans resolution, and faster elution for the analysis of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid methyl esters.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
