2.4 General Purpose Configuration

The most general purpose GC system would be one configured as follows: narrow bore or megabore capillary column, capillary split/splitless inlet, Flame Ionization Detector (FID). Such a system is suitable for a wide range of organic analyses, including volatiles and analytes of clinical interest.
