Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) System Market: Introduction
- Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is an analytical separation technology widely used for chiral separation and analysis of high weight hydrocarbons. This technique is a combination of the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography (GC) and uses instruments such as detectors and columns. SFC enables the estimation, identification, and isolation of components that are critical to separate by GC and HPLC techniques.
- Various gases used in the supercritical fluid chromatography system include carbon dioxide, lower alkanes, ammonia, and nitrous oxide. Carbon dioxide is extensively utilized owing to its low critical temperature, low toxicity, and low cost. The SFC system is more advantageous, as compared to HPLC and GC separation systems, owing to its high resolution power. Moreover, these systems are easy to handle, and thus save time of the expert to conduct the process. Furthermore, economic & viable costs of separation technique make it highly preferably over other separation techniques.
