  • GC/MS analysis of a complex sample in DCM using hydrogen carrier gas

    Labs worldwide have recently found that helium has been in short supply, leaving a number of labs without carrier gas. Added to this, helium prices have doubled over the past 10 years causing a number of labs to look into alternative carrier gases for GC, such as nitrogen and hydrogen. As well as lower price and unlimited availability, hydrogen has a number of potential advantages over helium, ...

  • Hydrogen Performance for Carrier Gas

    Owing to the worldwide helium shortage, many labs are facing supply difficulties of helium, one of the most commonly used carrier gases and as a consequence are facing rapid price increases. Many chromatography labs are therefore looking for alternative carrier gases and for many GC applications, hydrogen provides a good, in some cases better, alternative to helium. The perceived danger of having ...

  • ATP Results vs. CFU Results: Consideration #2

    Culture testing takes microorganisms from their natural environment and attempts to recreate a new artificial laboratory environment that is designed to be favorable for their growth and replication. However, the vast majority (>99%) of organisms from the environment will not grow under laboratory conditions (T.Kaeberlein, K. Lewis, and S. S. Epstein, Isolating "uncultivable" microorganisms in ...

  • The properties of Seljuq and Ottoman era public fountain faucets and some rare faucet samples

    Until the late 19th and early 20th century, public fountains (in Turkish, ‘çeşme’) in Anatolia and Ottoman lands had an important place in everyday life. The water that was collected from various water sources and brought to the city centres through waterlines was supplied to people from the architectural stone structures which we call ‘fountains’. These ...

  • Behavior of hexavalent chromium in the water supply system by IC-ICP-MS method

    The analysis conditions for measuring trace concentration of Cr(VI) based on the ion chromatography-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (IC-ICP-MS) method was examined. By optimizing the analysis conditions, the measurement of 0.02 μg-Cr(VI)/L was achieved with a high degree of accuracy. The behavior of Cr(VI) through the water treatment process in Osaka city was investigated and ...
