HPCCC (High Performance Counter Current Chromatography)  

Counter current chromatography is a mode of liquid chromatography. There are two insoluble liquids without a solid column. One liquid serves as stationary phase and the other as mobile phase. Stationary phase is kept immobile with centrifugal force.

SIB Labs kemiallinen analyysi, 2D-kaasukromatografi-massaspektrometri

2D-GC-MS (2-Dimensional Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry)  

2D-GC-MS is used for identifying volatile organic compounds from various samples. Compared to basic GC-MS systems, selectivity and sensitivity are improved due to second column and Zoex thermal modulator. AOC-5000 sampling robot and Optic-4 injector allow versatile sampling options for gas, liquid and solid samples.
