3 INSTRUMENT SELECTION We buy instruments to solve a research problem, to make a separation, or to provide information for an analytical application. Having gathered the information we need from manufacturers, the literature, or colleagues, it is INSTRUMENT SELECTION 27 time to fit that information to our particular application. If we are setting up to duplicate an analytical protocol for an environmental analysis, our job is fairly straightforward. We simply need to order the exact equipment specified in the Environmental Service Administration (ESA) protocol.

Modular systems offer the ultimate in flexibility for the research laboratory with changing application needs. Their downside is that they tend to sprawl across the laboratory bench unless accompanied by some type of organizer bench or rack. They also are usually a little rawboned, with tubes sticking out at random—not very attractive when the funding committee, alumni, or news reporters are touring the laboratory. Interconnecting cables and a software-controlled computer can unite dedicated and modular systems containing components designed for external control.

The natures of the weaker and stronger solvents depend on the cartridge media. By playing with the composition of the wash for the less retained impurities and for the composition of the sample eluting solvent, the window frames for the conditions to retain and then elute the sample can be adjusted. On a octyldecylsilane (C18 ) packing, the weaker solvent would be water, the stronger solvent might be acetonitrile, the weak retaining impurities would be more polar than the sample, and the strong retaining impurities would be more nonpolar.
