Using the Tailing Factor or Peak Asymmetry Factor to Evaluate Chromatographic Peak Tailing

Specialty:

Clinical Laboratory

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

Ideally a chromatographic peak should be symmetrical. In many applications the downward slope tends to take longer to reach baseline than the curve took to reach its maximum. This "peak tailing" can be evaluated by a number of measures based on the symmetry of the chromatographic peak.
