1. Dr. Harold McNair
2. Grandfather of Modern Gas Chromatography
4. GC/ms Unit that Jeremy, Josh Lee and I got a 99.9999% accuracy curve on
Josh D. Lee says:
The man is Dr. Harold McNair. He is basically the father of modern Gas Chromatography. He is a profess at Virginia Tech University and the creator and former owner of Varian, Inc., manufacturer of GCs.
Around his arm is a Capillary column about to be installed in a GC. You can tell this because he has a cutter in his hand and is cutting the end of the column to get rid of possible contamination.
The instrument behind his right shoulder is an HPLC. Similar to a gas chromatography but the mobile phase is liquid instead. The instrument behind his left shoulder is a GC with what appears to be a headspace autosampler attached to it.
Justin J. McShane says:
So very close. The machine is an HPLC.
