Conditions and methods
Noise, drift and cell current
- After injecting I see spikes in the chromatogram
- Baseline shows pressure pulsations
- Cell current shows large continuous drift
- Continuous overload of cell current
- High background current
- Negative peaks in my dialysates interfere with my analysis
- Too much noise on my baseline
- Why do I see steps in my baseline?
Peak shape, height and sensitivity
- After installing a (new) column the sensitivity is lost
- Decrease in detector response
- Excessive peak broadening with partial loop fill
- How to improve my detection limit?
- My peaks are (much) wider than to be expected
- No signal
- Small peaks compared to literature
- What detection limits are feasible in HPLC/ECD?
Repeatability and linearity
- Antec ECD driver problem with OpenLab
- Antec ECD driver problems with Chromeleon
- Can I use an USB to RS232 convertor ?
- Connecting a start trigger for Agilent AD converter 35900E
- Data acquisition stops, LAN network connection problem
- Dialogue Elite shows error with red cross in graph
- New installed ECD driver does not appear in list of devices
- PC requirements
- Sample queue not starting, trigger not working in Empower 3
- What cable do I need to connect my device to a PC?
