  • 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 ...
