Method implications on lab gas supply for Residual Solvent Analysis using HS-GC-FID - as featured in The European Pharmaceutical Manufacturer Magazine.
ELSD is one of the most common detectors used with HPLC and is preferred to other detection methods for analyses such as carbohydrate, natural sugars and polymer analysis as well as being used for a wide range of other applications.
The Precision generator range has been designed to produce ultra-high purity (UHP) gases to supply GC applications for carrier and detector gas supply.
1. Gas Source Helium is becoming increasingly expensive with reports of its price having doubled in some regions between 2013 and 2015. Added to its increased price, supply cannot be ensured in certain regions which is increasing the number of labs looking to change to hydrogen.
Background Researchers from Prof. Guido Verbeck’s group at the University of North Texas (UNT) carried out analysis of drugs of abuse (DOA) and explosives using an ion trap GC-MS to compare results when using helium and hydrogen carrier and buffer gas. As well as comparing the two gases, the group also assessed a number of ion volumes with different orifice diameters to look at their effect on sensitivity with either gas.
