GC Troubleshooting Guide
Includes troubleshooting resources, on-demand webinars, thousands of applications, technical demonstrations, how-to videos, and tools that make selecting the right product easier than ever.

Sample Prep Guides

Collection Plate and Sealing Mat Selection Guide
This guide includes all of the measurements, material composition, well volumes, and more that you will need to ensure that you find the best collection plate and sealing mat for your work.

Environmental Sample Preparation Guide
Find the appropriate sample preparation technique and product for your difficult environmental matrices. This guide provides product and techniques recommendations as well as applications for reference.

Sample Preparation Selection and Users Guide
Sample preparation is crucial in achieving desired LC or GC analytical results. Sample matrix effects can result in an array of interferences which can lead to poor chromatography as well as instrumentation drawbacks, hindering your approach and goal for the analysis.

A Simplified Approach to Sample Preparation
Outlines a simple approach for successful solid phase extraction method development.

The Complete Guide to Solid Phase Extraction
Learn how to develop a customized method for SPE and view applications that are applicable to a variety of different industries.

Industry Guides

Essential Guide for Biofuel Analysis
Phenomenex is dedicated to supporting the biofuel industry with cutting edge chromatographic tools and resources designed to enhance production, simplify alternative fuels analysis, and lower production costs.

Pharmaceutical Analysis Guide
Look inside to see how you can easily achieve resolution, ruggedness, and reproducibility in your pharmaceutical method development.

Chromatography Guide for Environmental Testing
In recent years, there has been a rapid, worldwide increase in environmental testing. The sudden emergence of hybrid vehicles and the recent trend towards biofuels highlight the growing concern for environmental pollutants. As the focus on environmental contaminants and cleanup has increased, there is heightened demand for more sensitive analytical tests to measure the amount of pollutants in the environment. Since 1982, Phenomenex has been committed to developing a broad range of products that will help companies accurately and reliably identify and quantify these contaminants.

Vitamin Testing Applications Guide
This guide is your answer to simple cleanup procedures, rapid HPLC analysis, and accurate and reproducible results in your clinical research.

Improved Methods for Forensic Toxicology Analysis
The screening and confirmation for drugs of abuse and their metabolites present many challenges in toxicological analysis. Searching for illegal drugs in complex matrices, such as urine and blood, can prove to be difficult because if present, they may be found at very low concentration levels. Direct analysis of these samples is often hampered by endogenous compounds in the biomatrix. These interferences are often in higher concentrations than that of the target analytes and thus may mask their presence.
