. . . In this way you can use a Retention Gap
- with the ease of use and installation of a regular column, without the complications associated with a connection-Retention Gap and avoiding risky and potential leak points that generate accurate and repeatable data.
The injection side and the point where it ends the portion of the Retention-Gap and starts the stationary phase are suitably marked on the column, to make even more simple, intuitive and convenient in its use.
MEGA offers the MEGA-GAP columns, available with each stationary phase and size combinations at no extra cost, you will pay that these columns as a normal traditional column.
For example, a column by GAP MEGA-0.32mm (id) 30m (25m + 5m Ret. Gap integrated) cost as a traditional column, 30m 0.32mm (id) (registering on the site, you will have access to the full price list for our products and offerings.

The use of Retention-Gap is linked to the cleaning of the column and the refocusing of the band of the injected sample.
When using samples "dirty" Gandi quantity injected into the column (especially in the first portion, in which the sample is often found in the liquid phase) may be contaminated.
The contamination of the column with the sequence of injections leads to a loss of performance of the column, with peaks and deformed lower the resolution.
The Retention-Gap interposed between the injector and the column itself prevent the contamination of the column, extending the life of the column of very!
Furthermore, another result of the use of Retention-Gap is the fact that the sample injected will meet refocus when, after the stretch-free phase of precisely Retention-Gap, the stationary phase of the column; this translates into a band of starting closer, producing narrower peaks and thus improving the overall analysis.
With regard to the retention times and other effects of retention-Gap recommend reading this article ( pdf ) where it is shown that the retention-Gap has no practical effect on the retention times and other analytical parameters.
