CALION standards are solventless standards used to calibrate and validate the performance of GC and GC/MS instruments. They are designed to ensure that quality GC/MS results are produced in the field. CALION standards are reliable and easy to use for instrument calibration and performance validation. Advantages of using solventless CALION standards include: 

  • No dilution or liquid standard preparation necessary in the field or laboratory 
  • No solvent peaks or solvent related interference in the chromatogram 
  • Compatibility with solid phase microextraction (SPME) for solventless injections
  • Provide GC retention time and index calibrations 
  • Provide mass calibration of the MS 
  • Provide concentration data
  • No spilling or leaking
  • Easy to use
  • Highly reproducible
