Why Buy Varian GC Columns?
•   High quality
•   Individually tested
•   Application specific solutions
•   Published, guaranteed specifications
•   EZ-GRIP provides ease-of-use
•   Leading-edge technology

Varian GC capillary columns stand for quality and the latest innovation. Varian is uniquely
positioned to deliver the highest quality capillary columns with the most demanding quality
assurance specifications in the industry. That’s because we control the entire manufacturing process
in-house — from the production of the fused silica tubing and stationary phase, all the way through
column manufacturing and quality assurance, design and technology. Varian columns are the most
reproducible on the market, which is reflected in our published specifications. A final quality touch: each
Varian capillary column is individually tested.

Varian GC Capillary Column Program
Varian offers the most complete capillary column selection available on the market today, and provides a wide variety of ultra-low bleed and general purpose
columns as well as specialized Porous Layer Open Tubular capillary (PLOT) columns for gases and volatile compounds. Also available are Select columns,
application specific columns for environmental, food and fragrance, chemical, and chiral analyses. You’ll find that there’s a Varian capillary column to
meet your need, with a range of features suited to optimize your specific application. In addition, each Varian capillary column is supplied with EZ-GRIP,
the unique system that makes installation, coupling, and operation of your capillary column easier.

For a complete overview of Varian’s GC column program, phase composition and application area, see page 196.

Varian’s Unique EZ-GRIP™
Supplied with Each Standard GC Capillary Column

• Easier precolumn/retention gap and dual-column installation
• Secure, error-free connections for optimum column performance
• Saves installation time with complete, unified column system




                                                                                                                                                               GC Columns
1. Special tabs on EZ-GRIP secure up to 15 meters of precolumn and retention gap tubing.
2. Each EZ-GRIP includes two brackets to firmly attach single ferrule column connectors to a precolumn, transfer-line, or second analytical column.
3. EZ-GRIP firmly attaches a second analytical column on a 5-in. cage to create rugged and easy-to-handle dual column configurations. See page 194
   for more information on Varian’s GC columns on 5-in. cage.
4. EZ-GRIP tabs conveniently hold the column inlet and outlet ends during storage and installation. Inlet and outlet ends are clearly marked on the
   EZ-GRIP bar, eliminating accidental reverse-direction reinstallation and the extra time needed to reinstall or bake out/back flush the column.
5. The unique column scale is in the ideal location to help you accurately and quickly measure the correct column length to insert into the injector and
   detector. Also, standard Varian 3800 GC insertion lengths are pre-marked to save you from time and eliminate errors.

for this purpose. Extension of gas lines in the laboratory must be done with

Figure 1 shows the difference in bleed levels with and without a carrier gas filter when running
a temperature program (50°C to 350°C, 20°C/min). When no filter is used, an extreme rise in the
bleed profile is clearly visible due to moisture in the carrier gas. By using filters placed as close
as possible to the GC carrier gas inlet, a normal bleed profile is achieved with the removal of all
moisture in the carrier gas.

The Sample
Often, the background and ghost peaks that are assumed to be background
are a result of contamination from the sample. Even with pure solvents,
this background is evident. Contamination can occur in the sample when it
is delivered in a vial. The vial is often sealed with a cap on a rubber/silicon
seal. Unfortunately, the cap often releases softeners or siloxanes into the
sample. Typically, when a sample is stored in a vial and analyzed after 4-8
weeks, many extra peaks will be observed. Solvent contact with the cap
should therefore be minimized.

208        GC System Background Sources
  Contamination from the Outside
  Columns can be easily contaminated during installation by transfer of skin
  oils or hand creams, etc. Because many moisturizers contain siloxane, the
  column exterior can become contaminated. This is particularly important
  when using MS detection, since there is no gas flow along the outside
  of the fused silica when installed as a transfer line in an MS system. The
  contaminants can drift toward the ionization chamber, contributing to
  long stabilization times. Cleaning the end of the fused silica with tissue and
  methanol before it is inserted in the transfer line is always recommended.
  This also shortens stabilization times with the detection system.

  Oxygen and Moisture Contamination
  Introduction of air in the GC system via “leaks”                                 Did you know that EZ-Guard columns
  The introduction of moisture and oxygen can cause high background,               include an integrated retention gap for
  tailing, and shifting of retention times. This can happen via leaks and is       leak-free operation?
  introduced via the gas supply, coupling, septum, and connections. Leak
  detection is thus important and is recommended to be done before
  conditioning the column by handheld leak detectors, which can locate
  leaks at difficult spots such as the septum.

  Introduction of air in the GC system via “air exposure”
  Transfer lines in MS are potential sources of background contamination.
  When performing column or injector maintenance, to save time the
  operator may leave the vacuum source on while sustaining a high
  temperature on the transfer line. A large volume of air (containing
  moisture and oxygen) can pass through the hot transfer line, causing a
  great deal of activation and degradation of the stationary phase in the
  line. The subsequent analysis can exhibit higher background and less peak
  abundance due to adsorption.

  The Stationary Phase
  Each stationary phase will start to decompose when heated at elevated
  temperatures. The stationary phase will form degradation. The absolute
  bleed level depends on the nature of the stationary phase, the temperature
  and the amount of phase present in the column. The formation of
  degradation products can be reduced by stabilization of the stationary
  phase, leading to lower background. The stationary phase stabilization
  technology and the optimization of the fused silica surface all contribute
  to the low bleed specifications of Varian’s FactorFour columns.

  For optimal results, condition the columns 20°C above the final analysis
  temperature or at the maximum temperature of the column. For reducing
  column bleed without the risk of damage from oxygen in the carrier gas,
  longer conditioning times at lower temperatures may be more effective.

Highly Inert Capillary Columns with the Lowest Bleed Specifications - Guaranteed

•   Lower detection limits
•   Improved inertness
•   Longer column lifetime
•   Reduced detector contamination
•   Enhanced instrument performance

Varian FactorFour capillary columns have quickly become the industry standard for high performance
GC and GC/MS analysis. Using optimized manufacturing technologies and a comprehensive set of QC
specifications, FactorFour columns deliver the new standard for ultralow bleed column performance.
The Varian FactorFour capillary column line has been expanded to become a complete, comprehensive
family of stationary phases, suitable for industrial, toxicology, petrochemical, and trace environmental
applications.

The Basis for FactorFour Superiority
Varian controls the entire in-house manufacturing process to supply you with FactorFour columns that
have a reduced bleed specification by up to a factor of four. This bleed reduction significantly improves column performance in many ways. The process of
bleed formation depends on the integrity of the fused silica capillary surface, polymer coating and conditioning technology.

First, to ensure absolute integrity, Varian draws its own capillary tubing specifically for the production of capillary columns - a rare attribute. By controlling
the conditions during fused silica drawing, the surface can be optimized for deactivation and low bleed.

Second, in-house synthesis of the stationary phases has led to the development of new, proprietary technologies that reduce the fundamental breakdown
processes that causes column bleed.

Third, the conditioning of FactorFour columns is done at optimized temperatures under high purity gas that’s purified using the Varian Gas Clean Filter
system.

Finally, all FactorFour columns are manufactured under close supervision to exacting specifications and are rigorously tested, so you’re guaranteed that
every FactorFour column meets the Varian FactorFour performance specifications.

Ultralow Bleed                                                                                                                 Figure 2.
All FactorFour columns deliver extremely low bleed rates. In fact, their bleed specifications
are up to four times lower than competitive products (Figure 1).

The ultralow bleed achievable from FactorFour columns provide many benefits:
• Accurate peak identification enables you to achieve more reliable results
• Superior response for traces delivers better quantification
• Enhanced detector performance increases productivity and reduces your costs
• Faster stabilization ensures longer instrument uptime and increased productivity
• Longer column lifetime lowers the cost per analysis (Figure 2).

      The nonpolar VF-5ms phase has a slightly higher polarity than the VF-1ms
      phase, resulting in a better selectivity for aromatic compounds. VF-5ms
      columns are ideal for analyzing nonpolar components. Better yet, the
      high quality fused silica surface and deactivation makes the column also
      applicable for a wide variety of semipolar, and even polar components like
      phenols.

      Typical Analyses: Alcohols, amines, aromatic hydrocarbons, bile acids,
      drugs, EPA methods, esters, FAME, flavors and aromas, glycerides,
      halogenated compounds, herbicides, hydrocarbons, organic acids,
      oxygenates, PAHs, PCBs, pesticides, phenols, polymers, prostaglandins,
      solvents, steroids, sterols, sugars, and sulfur compounds.

                                                VF-DA is a unique, guaranteed low bleed FactorFour GC column for drugs
                                                of abuse confirmation testing. The VF-DA column has high recovery for
                                                trace components and excellent resistance to direct methanol injections.
                                                Drugs of abuse are measured in a variety of matrices. In urine, most
                                                general screenings are performed using full-scan GC/MS (El). Since
                                                column bleeding can negatively influence detection limits in full scan
                                                mode, the exceptionally low bleed of VF-DA columns is critically important.
                                                As column bleed is minimized, all the benefits of low bleed are provided:
                                                reduced detection limits, improved accuracy, cleaner detector.

FactorFour™ VF-5ht
• High temperature stabilized phase equivalent to 5% phenyl, 95%
  dimethylpolysiloxane
• Tmax 400 °C, lowest bleed phase
• Excellent peak shape and fast elution times for high boiling point
  compounds
• Cross-linked and bonded for easy solvent rinsing


  NEW!              The nonpolar VF-5ht column is specifically manufactured
                    for an extended temperature limit of 400 °C.

FactorFour technology is applied to the VF-5ht column, and a special
surface treatment of the fused silica is used to decrease the influence
of the fused silica on the stationary phase. As a result, an extremely low
bleed and a high maximum temperature column is obtained, unmatched
by products from other manufacturers.

Typical Analyses: High boiling point compounds, high molecular weight
hydrocarbons, antioxidants, triglycerides

Similar Phases: DB-5ht

      The first 5- or 10-meter section of the EZ-Guard column (guard length
      depends on the column you select) is not coated with stationary phase,
      but it has been deactivated. The lack of a column connection between
      the guard and analytical sections results in a 100% leak-free column. As a
      result, former problems with installation, peak shape and leaks just don’t

224          Rapid-MS GC/MS Columns
  Rapid-MS
  • Faster GC/MS analysis: A factor 3-5 for temperature programmed, and
    up to a factor 10 for isothermal runs
  • High loadability: Film thickness from 0.1 to 1 micron
  • Higher sensitivity: Typically signal-to-noise ratio will increase by a
    factor 3 or greater

  Rapid-MS columns utilize the high optimal carrier gas velocity obtained
  when a separation is performed under reduced pressure to reduce analysis
  times. With Rapid-MS columns, GC/MS analysis time is decreased up
  to a factor of 10, and the sensitivity is increased at the same time. The
  low-bleed VF-5ms stationary phase is equivalent to 5% phenyl, 95%
  dimethylpolysiloxane phase. Rapid-MS requires no changes to your
  injector procedures or MS methods. Installation is easy: standard fittings
  and ferrules can be used, and no special skills are required.

  Now available with the ultra-low bleed VF-5ms phase, which is equivalent
  to the CP-Sil 8 CB Low Bleed/MS phase, yet provides an even lower bleed
  level. See page 212 for more detail on the VF-5ms.

  Typical components analyzed with the Rapid-MS include: PCBs and
  Arochlor, Pesticides (Chlorinated, Nitrogen, Phosphorous), FAME, PAH and
  Drugs.

CP-Sil 5 CB
•   100% dimethylpolysiloxane
•   Guaranteed reproducibility, long lifetime
•   High efficiency, high inertness OV-1-type column
•   Available in fused silica and UltiMetal
•   Suitable for a wide range of applications

The CP-Sil 5 CB column contains a 100% dimethylpolysiloxane phase. Like the CP-Sil 2 CB column, separation is almost entirely based on boiling points,
making this column suitable for a wide range of applications with a broad temperature range. Due to intensive cross-linking, CP-Sil 5 CB withstands large
solvent injections, ensuring maximum column lifetime. For the highest maximum operating temperatures, use our UltiMetal columns.

See page 210 for our premium low-bleed 100% dimethylpolysiloxane FactorFour VF-1ms phase. Varian’s FactorFour columns have quickly become the
industry standard for high performance GC analysis. The ultra-low bleed columns deliver superiour response for routine trace analysis, lower detection
limits, and longer lifetime. Selectivity of the FactorFour phases can be slightly different from the standard CP-Sil polysiloxane phases.

  Columns are on 7-inch cages. For 5-inch cages, add I5 to the end of the part number, e.g. CPxxxxI5. Columns on 5-inch cages fit GCs with small
  column ovens, and will attach to our 7-inch EZ-GRIP™ cage for dual-column configurations. We manufacture custom columns in virtually any size.
  For column dimensions not shown here, please contact your nearest Varian, Inc. office or distributor.

CP-Sil 8 CB
•   5% phenyl, 95% dimethylpolysiloxane
•   Guaranteed reproducibility, selectivity and retention times
•   High efficiency, long lifetime
•   Good selectivity for aromatic compounds
•   Available in fused silica and UltiMetal
•   Suitable for a wide range of applications

By incorporating 5% phenyl groups in the dimethylpolysiloxane polymer, the CP-Sil 8 CB column has a slightly higher polarity than CP-Sil 5 CB columns.
This results in a better selectivity for aromatic compounds and is generally the best choice when developing a method. CP-Sil 8 CB shows excellent column-
to-column reproducibility and very high column efficiencies. Specially tested versions with guaranteed performance for PCB and pesticide analysis, CP-Sil
8 CB for PCB and CP-Sil 8 CB for Pesticides, are also available. See our Select™ columns.

See page 212 for our premium low-bleed 5% phenyl, 95% dimethylpolysiloxane FactorFour phase, VF-5ms. Varian’s new FactorFour columns have quickly
become the industry standard for high performance GC analysis. The ultra-low bleed columns deliver superior responses for trace analysis, lower detection
limits, and longer lifetime.

  Columns are on 7-inch cages. For 5-inch cages, add I5 to the end of the part number, e.g. CPxxxxI5. Columns on 5-inch cages fit GCs with small column ovens,
  and will attach to our 7-inch EZ-GRIP™ cage for dual-column configurations. We manufacture custom columns in virtually any size. For column dimensions not
  shown here, please contact your nearest Varian, Inc. office or distributor.

                 Did you know that an injector septum contains
                 up to 200 times more siloxane phase than what
                 is in a capillary column, and therefore produces
                 up to 200 times more bleed?

      CP-Sil 88
      • Highly substituted cyanopropyl phase
      • Highest polarity, non-chemically bonded, stabilized column
      • High selectivity towards positional and geometric isomers

      The CP-Sil 88 column contains a highly substituted cyanopropyl phase that has been stabilized. The extremely high polarity of this column offers maximum
      resolution in separations where the boiling point and polarity of the analytes are nearly equal (for example, the separation of positional and geometric
      isomers).

      Typical components analyzed with this phase include: dioxins, FAME, PCBs, PCDFs, pyridines and sugars.

236       Varian PLOT GC Columns
  Varian PLOT GC Columns
  Porous Layer Open Tubular capillary (PLOT) columns are ideal for separating gases and volatile compounds.
  The stationary phase of PLOT columns is based on an adsorbent or a porous polymer. This allows users to
  experience the benefits of high-resolution capillary gas chromatography when analyzing a wide range
  of gases and volatiles. Varian’s PLOT columns deliver superior mechanical and temperature stability, and
  allow for increasingly fast methods.

  Varian has been the industry leader in PLOT technology since we introduced the first PLOT column in
  1988. Today Varian not only continues to offer the widest range of PLOT columns, but now also delivers
  the latest generation of highly stable bonded PLOT columns with improved reliability in the analysis of
  volatile solvents and hydrocarbons.


      NEW!       The Varian Select Al2O3 MAPD
                The Varian Select Al2O3 MAPD is an aluminum PLOT column optimized for Methyl
  Acetylene and Propadiene Response for unsurpassed analysis of trace reactive hydrocarbons in the
  C1-C10 range. See page 248 for more detailed information.

The new generation of adsorption materials deliver the highest resolution and shortest analysis times
                                                             When developing bonded PLOT columns, Varian created a unique column coating
                                                             process that grows the porous polymer layer “in-situ” within the column. As a result,
                                                             the Varian bonded PLOT columns show superior stability, zero particle loss and low bleed
                                                             when compared to the older manufacturing process of coating the inside of the column
                                                             with discrete particles. These outstanding capabilities in turn lead to improved methods,
                                                             eliminate the risk of particle loss, and the need for particle traps. Higher temperature
                                                             specifications together with the improved separation of volatile compounds make bonded
                                                             PLOT columns a better choice than conventional general-purpose columns for many
                                                             methods in the chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

                                                             Varian bonds the porous polymer to the column so there are no loose particles to cause
                                                             detector spiking or valve columns. This makes PoraBOND columns ideal for use with
                                                             pressure programs, GC/MS applications, and valve switching. Due to the bonding of the
                                                             PoraBOND columns, they withstand repeated water injections.

240            Varian PLOT GC Columns
  CP-Al2O3 PLOT
  • Guaranteed analysis of all C1-C5 hydrocarbons
  • Shortest analysis times for hydrocarbons at temperatures above
    ambient
  • High resolution

  Available in fused silica and UltiMetal
  Ultmetal columns are especially suited for applications in rugged
  environments; e.g., process or portable instruments, and where higher
  temperatures are needed. In fact, UltiMetal columns are virtually
  unbreakable.

  KCl or Na2SO4 Deactivation
  The aluminum oxide PLOT columns are deactivated using very small salt
  crystals, providing a reproducible and stable deactivation up to 200ºC.
  Depending on the type of deactivation salt, the CP-Al2O3 column will show
  different selectivities. KCl salt deactivation results in a relatively nonpolar
  Al2O3 surface, while Na2SO4 deactivation results in a polar surface where
  unsaturated compounds like ethylene and acetylene (ethyne) and methyl
  acetylene (propyne) are retained longer.

  • Up to a two-fold higher response for acetylene and methyl acetylene
    and propadiene (MAPD) — especially important when running
    an impurity analysis
  • Two-fold improvement in detection limits
  • Faster run times


      NEW!      Varian Select Al2O3 MAPD
                The new Varian Select Al2O3 MAPD is an aluminum oxide PLOT column for the analysis of reactive hydrocarbons and is especially targeted
                towards the response for methyl acetylene and propadiene (MAPD). The column is stable up to 200 °C for hydrocarbons up to C10. With the
                Varian Select Al2O3 MAPD column, the adsorption and nonstable response for reactive (polar) hydrocarbons are greatly improved.

                To minimize the effects of water, use Varian Gas Clean Filters (see page 271) and condition the column for 20 minutes at 200 °C.

  CP-Sil 88 for Dioxins
  • Guaranteed analysis of dioxin isomers
  • 2,3,7,8-TCDD can be determined at low concentrations
  • Supplied with integrated retention gap

  The CP-Sil 88 column has a very high polarity and a specific selectivity for dioxins and dibenzofuran separations. The column is supplied with an integrated
  retention gap, allowing repeated splitless injections without phase deterioration. In addition, because of the integrated retention gap, there is no leakage
  from coupling devices -- thereby extending column life considerably. For shortest analysis times, a series of thin-film coated columns is available that allow
  applications up to 270 ºC in temperature programmed mode.

selection of column dimensions is according to your needs of fast separation, lowest level
analysis, and quantification of argon/oxygen. The Varian Select Permanent Gases columns
are coupled, tested, and securely mounted on the EZ-GRIP column mounting system.

The CP7429 Select Permanent Gases/CO2 column is designed for fast analysis of permanent
gases and CO2 . For resolution of the difficult-to-separate Argon/Oxygen and Helium/Neon
pairs, use our CP7430 Select Permanent Gases/HR (High Resolution) column.

CP-Volamine
• Optimized for the separation of volatile amines
• Excellent stability for samples containing water
• Maximum temperature of 265 ºC

The CP-Volamine column is optimized for the separation of volatile amines and alcohols. CP-Volamine is the best choice for analyzing volatiles amines
such as MMA, DMA and TMA. Other components of interest - alcohols, water and ammonia - also elute as sharp peaks. CP-Volamine is highly inert, elutes
a wide range of compounds, and delivers excellent performance and unique stability for water. Both 15- and 30-meter columns are available to ensure
the shortest run times for amine samples that do not require the resolution of the 60-meter column.

  GC—LC—MS—AAS—ICP—UV-Vis-NIR—FT-IR—Fluorescence—Dissolution—NMR—Consumable Products
        Varian Select GC Columns for Food & Beverage Applications 259
Select FAME
•   Efficient separation of FAME isomers due to optimized selectivity
•   Long life time due to high polarity 100% bonded phase
•   Short run times due to extended Tmax of 290 ºC
•   Lower detection limits due to low bleed
•   Better separation due to high efficiency and loadability

Varian’s Select FAME column is tuned for optimal Cis / Trans separations of FAMEs, especially
the C18 isomers. The bonded Select FAME column has an isothermal maximum operation
temperature of 275 °C and a programmed temperature of 290 °C - a dramatic improvement
of 50 °C compared to nonbonded columns. Select FAME has better detection limits because
the column has a very low bleed level. Even though this is a very polar column, the column
efficiency is extremely high. Columns up to 200 meters are available for detailed analysis of
the C18:1 isomer cluster. The Select FAME column also offers a factor of 3 higher loadability,
further improving the shape and separation for FAME isomers - especially if one component
is present at a higher concentration.                                                                                                               Bleed comparison of Select FAME

                         are a single continuous length, so no coupling is used, resulting in a 100% leak-free connection. See page 222 for how you can benefit
                         from the new EZ-Guard columns.

  Retention Gap for Varian Select Mineral Oil Column
  For optimal injection performance of the Varian Select Mineral Oil column, a four-meter retention gap is available. See page 249 for more information and
  applications for the Select Mineral Oil column.

CP-Quick-Seal Fused Silica Column Connectors
• Universal Connector
• Connects Tubing From 0.15 – 0.53mm ID
• Deactivated for maximum inertness


Quick-Seal Fused Silica Connectors
Optimum column connections are made when the Quick-Seal connector is sized for both tubing IDs. However Quick-
Seal connnectors may be used with columns that have internal diameters up to the specified value, e.g. CP4779 can
be used with column IDs up to 0.32 mm. CP4787 may be used with all column IDs up to 0.53 mm and is therefore a
universal connector.

Teflon columns are available in 1/8” and 1/4” (OD), and are supplied with brass nuts and teflon ferrules except for Shimadzu models.

Custom-Coated Packings
Varian can supply any coated packing for your packed column application need; even mixed liquid phases are possible. Custom-made packing materials
are freshly prepared according to your specifications. The packings can be pretested, in which case they will be supplied with a test chromatogram. They
are then shipped in glass bottles filled with an inert gas to prevent contamination and oxidation.

When ordering custom-made packings, please specify as follows:
1. Part Number CP99980
2. quantity of packing in (minimum of 10 grams)
3. loading of liquid phase(s)
4. liquid phase(s)
5. support
6. mesh size
7. pretested, if desired
