What is Chromatography?

Chromatography is a laboratory technique for the separation of a mixture. The mixture is dissolved in a fluid called the mobile phase, which carries it through a structure holding another material called the stationary phase. The various constituents of the mixture travel at different speeds, causing them to separate. The separation is based on differential partitioning between the mobile and stationary phases. Subtle differences in a compound's partition coefficient result in differential retention on the stationary phase and thus affect the separation.

Why The 'Greyhound' Brand Name?

We're often asked where our brand name 'Greyhound' comes from.  The simple explanation is that we wanted a name that people would remember easily.  38 years ago there was no such thing as Email and certainly no Internet.  Very few Fax machines were in use so everything took much longer to source and deliver.  Greyhound wanted to provide a service that was quick and reliable - there aren't many animals that are as quick as a Greyhound.  So we chose the sleek, fast Greyhound to take our business around the world.  The latest version of our logo is an 'updated' dog, probably the Great Grandson of the original dog.
