Peak Scientific is a leading innovator in the design, manufacture and on-going support of high performance on-site gas generators for analytical laboratories.

With nearly two decades of experience in pioneering reliable gas ‭generator technology, Peak Scientific develops market-leading ‭nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air systems, mainly for the fields of LC-MS and GC.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ An on-site gas generator from Peak Scientific is the practical and cost-effective alternative to pressurized cylinders. Traditional sources of gas incur on-going delivery, administrative and rental costs, all of which impact on business revenue or facility budgets.

Our forte is in providing our customers with unrivalled peace of mind and hassle free; high ‭quality, dependable gas generation solutions tailored to meet their ‭specific laboratory demands. This comes backed up by our world-class ‭technical support and on-going service care throughout the generator’s ‭lifespan. With a rapid response and offices on every continent we deliver a local serviceon a global scale.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Our best selling Genius series, designed mainly for LC-MS applications, is a self-contained system featuring integrated compressors, delivering laboratory-grade nitrogen at various pressures and flow rates required by a large spectrum of LC-MS instruments available on the market. FlexFlow, Peak's first of its kind gas subscription service, offers labs using LC-MS all the benefits of a gas generator for a low, fixed monthly subscription charge. The proven Infinity series of nitrogen gas generators are silent-running compressor-free systems for laboratories with an in-house supply of clean, dry air - delivering nitrogen at a wide range of flow rates including models to satisfy more demanding applications such as sample evaporation, glove boxes or supplying multiple LC-MS.

Engineered specifically to meet the needs of Gas Chromatography our cutting-edge Precision series is a modular system consisting of high-purity nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air generators that can be combined into a compact stack tailored to your needs.

When it comes to the lower nitrogen gas requirements of ELSD and Micro Mass Spectrometers the Solaris Nitrogen generator is a dedicated solution delivering ultra high purity nitrogen at the push of a button.   

For higher flow high purity needs, our innovative i-FlowLab technology is designed to meet the total demand for nitrogen gas that a facility may have, all in one expandable installed solution that can be easily scaled up as your needs grow.

When it comes to laboratory gas supply, Peak is your local gas generation partner.

Peak Scientific are a world-renowned hydrogen generator and nitrogen generator supplier. Our range of products includes the Genius, Infinity and Precision generators, which are small to large scale nitrogen and hydrogen gas systems for the Gas Chromatography (GC) and Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS) markets.

Our Genius range are compressor fitted Nitrogen Generators that are a proven solution for customers requiring nitrogen for their LCMS application. The Infinity range are perpetual flow Nitrogen generators offer a pure and reliable source of gas suitable for a variety of applications in your laboratory. The Precision range is our newly designed modular gas generator series for single and multiple GC applications.

Smoother, quieter and more efficient than anything else on the market, all our laboratory gas generators offer superb technical performance in the lab, and, of course, our world- class service and support come as Standard.

Our Service

Our Service & Support is world class. Without fail our expert engineers fix problems at the first visit and you can find them all around the world- not that you will need them very often. Even though our Laboratory Gas Generators take the strain in the lab, they deliver all your gas requirements smoothly- and reliably.
