Perkin Elmer Clarus 590 GC machine with Flame Ionization Detector (FID) attached with columns suitable for detecting general organic compounds.

Gas chromatography (GC) is an analytical technique used to detect the presence or absence of chemicals, particularly organic compounds, as well as to quantify them in a given sample.

The components need to be volatile, usually with a molecular weight below 1250 Da, and thermally stable so they do not degrade in the GC system. GC is a widely used technique in both academia and industry.
