Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC Columns
Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC columns offer enhanced resolutions for EU and EPH regulated PAHs
Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC Columns
Priority PAH Analysis by GC

Zebron™ ZB-PAH-CT columns are manufactured to provide the most optimal performance for EU-regulated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and EPA regulated PAHs. We designed the Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC column to achieve complete resolution of Chrysene from Triphenylene along with other EU 15+1 and Triphenylene PAH compounds. Its unique selectivity helps eliminate false positives while resolving PAH isomers, providing easy, fast, and accurate quantification of PAHs in environmental and food samples.

Zebron ZB-PAH-CT features

  • Enhanced Resolution for Chrysene and Triphenylene (PAH Interferences)
  • Increased Benzo[b,k]fluoranthene Separation
  • Optimal Performance and Resolution of Regulated PAH Isomers
  • Great Resolution of Critical Isomers, e.g. Benzo[b,j,k]fluoranthene

Recommended Use

Separation and Analysis of PAHs from Environmental, Food and Consumer Product Samples. Analysis of 15+1 EU-regulated and EPA regulated PAHs in food testing, rubber, plastic, coal, Sources include cigarette smoke, vehicle exhausts, asphalt roads, coal, coal tar, wildfires, agricultural burning, residential wood burning, municipal, industrial waste incineration.

Say Hello to the Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC Column
Designed to move conventional PAH testing to the exceptional, Zebron GC columns come to life through a coupling of innovative spirit and technical excellence. The Zebron ZB-PAH-EU and ZB-PAH-CT offer unparalleled performance through the power of targeted selectivity when analyzing Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs).
Excellent Resolution of Chrysene and Triphenylene

We designed the Zebron ZB-PAH-CT GC column to achieve complete resolution of Chrysene from Triphenylene along with other EU 15+1 PAH compounds. Its unique selectivity helps eliminate false positives while resolving PAH isomers, providing easy, fast, and accurate quantification of PAHs in environmental and food samples.
