Column Bleed

What is Normal Column Bleed?
  • Normal background signal generated by the column stationary phase

What is NOT Normal Column Bleed?

  • High baseline at low temperatures
  • Discreet Peaks
  • Wandering or drifting baseline at any temperature

Why is Low Bleed Better?

  • Improved signal- to- noise ie. BETTER SENSITIVITY
  • Less Spectral Interference MORE RELIABLE LIBRARY ‘HITS’
  • Cleaner Detector = LOWER MAINTENANCE
