Chromatography explained

Affinity chromatography

Affinity chromatography Affinity chromatography is a chromatographic method of separating biochemical mixtures, based on a highly specific biologic interaction such as that between antigen and antibody , enzyme and substrate , or receptor and ligand . Affinity chromatography combines the size ...

Gas-liquid chromatography

Gas-liquid chromatography Gas-liquid chromatography (GLC), or simply gas chromatography (GC), is a type of chromatography in which the mobile phase is a carrier gas, usually an inert gas such as helium or an unreactive gas such as nitrogen , and the stationary phase is a microscopic layer of li ...

Gel Permeation Chromatography

Gel Permeation Chromatography Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) is a separation technique based on hydrodynamic volume (size in solution). Molecules are separated from one another based on differences in molecular size. This technique is often used for polymer molecular weight determination. GP ...
